Excited to be joining in.....

I'm really excited to be joining in on this SAL for 'Tis the Season. It's going to be loads of fun getting to know people and hopefully get a quilt finished at the end of it!!
I have chosen some French General fabrics for my quilt. They are from two different ranges... one is La Petite Ecole and the other is Maison De Garance. I think they'll look great together and I'm so excited to start on the quilt.


It's going to be a good thing to actually have Christmas items finished FOR CHRISTMAS! Good luck to everyone... here's hoping we can motivate each other to keep going with this great project. Thanks to Chookyblue for running it!
