Christmas Top Complete

Maureen suggested for us to get together at Patricia's Quilt Store in East Rochester for an all day sew in or FTDP day.  I brought the Christmas top to sew together and place borders on. I brought the backing too and a few other projects "just in case"; never touched them.
The ladies that are the usuals there are absolutely a hoot and what projects!; the talent in that room was amazing.
We finished up around 5:30pm. I think we were spent. The ladies said "the fun has just begun", pizza is on its way and we have hours left. I think Maureen and I busted our hump the entire time we were there and the rest of the motley crew were coasting.... no wonder they had more to give. I think they just wanted the pizza and yak yak. But, that is ok too.
I must do that again though. Once in a while is wonderful. Im not sure I could hop around from shop to shop doing all day outings all the time though like the crew....

Close up and backing.


  1. It looks great, Shellie!!! I love the colors that you picked for the border!

  2. Love the fabric you used for the borders. Great quilt
