Happy Holidays!

I decided a year ago that I wanted to make a little vintage-y looking Christmas wall quilt. I was going to make my own pattern, but then I found a picture of one online. It's by Eileen Bahring Sullivan from 1994. I ordered it from a company--and it never came. It turned out that the company was no longer in business. After Christmas I found it somewhere else, so I ended up making it several months later. But I still need to quilt it--maybe over the next couple of weeks--it's only 23 by 26 inches, so that should be pretty easy. (I told myself I had to wait until after I got my grandbaby quilt done, and I finished that last night. Yippee! Baby can be born now.) The quilt is freezer paper pieced. 

And here's what my husband was doing while I was messing around with this post:

Rusk Pie! Yummy goodness. It's a good thing there is one good baker in this family. (He's a good cook, too--just what a quilter needs, right?)

I'm linking up with Bonnie K. Hunter's Quiltville today for A Very Happy Holiday Linky Party. And yes, Bonnie, I do make quilts "out of season" because when I get my ideas for seasonal quilts, it's always too late to make them. 

I'm linking up to Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social, too.

I'll try to get photos of my finished baby quilt soon--if it ever stops raining...
