We are now only about six weeks away from moving into our new house so it is time to once again begin packing up.  I have taken all my Sylvias Bridal Sampler blocks down from the wall and packed them up.  I must admit to being a little frustrated with it at the moment so am glad to see it down for a while.  After much indecision I decided to put it together in the quilt as you go method, which didn't prove very successful, so I unpicked the three rows and will join them in the traditional manner.  Not sure how I will quilt it though.   I participated in a Mug Rug swap through the Quilting Gallery and have posted them off  ( forgot to take photo of them before I sent them ).  Am awaiting mine in the mail also a christmas quilt block of the month through the fat quarter shop, so although I am in packing mode again I am also looking forward to receiving both of the above.  I have never had the room to hang a nice christmas quilt but will in the new house so must get onto it when it comes so it can be finished for THIS coming christmas!!!!
