I am trying to get a head start this week on my holiday sewing.  I always try to get a lot of samples made and notes written during the holiday period.  Summer School, which starts 9 January will give me less time.

Here are some lovely fabrics I am using for a new quilt as you go project.

Also, lots of templates were being taken out.

Now to appliqué lots of Dresden flowers on to a border piece for my next Jane Austen quilt.
