Beginning in April of last year, 17 members got together to sew 'Christmas Greetings from Elm Creek Manor' as a BOM. Here we are almost 1 year later, and I am happy to say that I stayed on track with this project and next month will sew the final block. Yesterday I got out all of my blocks and medallion and started sewing on the sashings. It went a lot faster than I thought it would, and I have to say that I'm pleased with how this quilt is coming together. Here is what is on my design wall this morning:
|Christmas Greetings from Elm Creek Manor|
Pattern by Jennifer Chiaverini
|More Elm Creek Quilts|
by Jennifer Chiaverini
I have always admired this quilt and happy to add it to my collection. I will use it as a wall hanging each Christmas. The quilt is from Jennifer Chiaverini's pattern book, More Elm Creek Quilts.
My Yahoo group has also done other patterns from this book including The New Years Quilt (featured on front cover), Lucinda's Gift and Mill Girls.
This year we will be beginning a brand new pattern to sew as a BOM (block of the month). Connie Boulay is the coordinator of our BOMs, and I know she will come up with something beautiful.
So, what's on your design wall this Monday? I enjoy reading your comments, and it's also fun to read about what other quilters are working on. Have a great week!
