Christmas Quilt Along - Post #4

Hello Again to Everyone,

This is our last post of the day.  As you can see, Gail and I have been very creative since about 6am this morning.  We didn't even stop to take poor Zinnie out for her walk today.  Which means we didn't get out for our walk today either!

Gail finished two more blocks for her table runner.  Our favorite is the one on the right.  We are both very partial to those colors.

Here are her eight Lil' Orphan Scrappy blocks altogether.  She has had so much fun that she doesn't want to go home! 

I finished another block for Country Charmer.

Here are all of my blocks, sashings and 9-patches together so far.  Just nine more blocks, then I can start putting this quilt together.  This one will for sure by finished by Christmas.

We are off to Snowshoe Brewery for a salad or burger that we will wash down with a beer.  We are not being very refined today. We will change into a clean pair of jeans and hiking boots as our dress for dinner. No red wine for us tonight.....give us a BEER!  We earned every frothy ounce of it! 

Many thanks to Lesley for being the hostess of the Christmas Quilt Along today.  Stop by her blog , The Cuddle Quilter to see what she, and everyone else has been working on today.  She is also having a giveaway, so hurry on over.

As always,

Lynn & Gail


  1. Now although you girls have made great strides today, you have me feeling sorry for Zinnie who didn't get a walk! ;-)

    I looked at the brewery website, and you look you are in for a well deserved treat! I'd love to join you for salad/burger/beer!

    We too have 'small scale' brewers here in the UK - I much prefer to sup a local/small scale brewery beer than generic large scale production Bud/Millers/Coors etc etc. Have a great evening - cheers!

  2. You and your sister really had a full day! Your blocks are just so gorgeous...every one of them! Well done, gals, and I just bet supper and a brew will hit the spot!

  3. Cheers to both of you!! You quilts are going to be gorgeous!! Have another one on me!!

  4. Your Country Charmer quilt is gorgeous! Fabulous quilting and I hope you enjoyed your beer. :)

  5. Oh hope the beer was good! You had a great day yesterday, both of you. Love the runner is going to be a real beuaty. and the Country Charmer, is a stunner! Happy Sunday!

  6. Good grief, did either of you stop at all during the day? I'm surprised you found time to even breathe. You've made some wonderful progress between you and I'm really looking forward to seeing all your blocks made into finished quilts.

  7. Your Country Charmer is beautiful. Happy quilting.

  8. One thing about getting away for a bit at the same time being away from blogland is the sheer delight in seeing what you've been up to when we get back, Lynn! You and Gail are having way too much fun! I just love the colors in your scrappy blocks! Gail's progress on Winterset is wonderful and your Christmas Country Charmer is adorable! I think you'd have a hard time dragging me away from all that sewing fun!
