Echino!! and the Quick Christmas Bee

Yesterday I had some great mail. The 4 Fat Eights I won on Fat Quarterly Blog by one of my favourite designers Echino! Thanks so much Brioni and the FQ peeps!! Love the fabric!!!

Earlier this year I joined a couple of friends in a Quick Christmas Bee. There are five of us in all with the idea to have a Christmas quilt ready before Christmas. Maria was first and sent out a lovely advent calendar, pattern available free on the web (for personal use) by Elizabeth Hartman on her blog 'Oh Fransson'.

I was last (hence finishing a bit late....) and thought it was a great idea, so with help of my four lovely friends, I have now finished the calendar too.

Another finish, another tick off my list! Time to start thinking about making my card and present list!

It looks lovely Marg, well done! And gorgeous fabrics from FQ too - more booty!!
Being snowed in last week (and again today) means I have got the top and back of my Quick Christmas Bee finished! Photos on the blog as soon as I make it back to work!

The advent calendar turned out wonderful Marg! A bit late doesn't matter much concidering this is something that will be used for many years to come, right :-)
Yay you on winning yet another give away, those fabrics are so pretty!

Marg - it's lovely. It;s so good to see things coming together and looking so good. I haven't had a chance yet to make my table runner. I suspect it's something that I'm going to have to drop - but I will try very hard to get it done. Juliex
