Welcome to Christmas .....Quilt Along . . . . .

Welcome to the first Christmas Quilt Along (CQAL) of 2011 !

For those of you that are rolling your eyes and thinking, "I'm not ready yet!", it might be better if you quietly sneak out the back door because today it is all about Christmas prep quilting.  But it's okay to say HI first.

Speaking from experience and being a long time member of the Christmas forum, just spending one day a month getting ready for Christmas will save you so much aggravation and stress sometime around the second week of December.  You probably WON'T be putting binding on your last quilt at midnight on Christmas Eve.

For starters, go over to my Christmas Quilt Along 2011 tab at the top of this page, sign up on Mr. Linky, and put on a cup of hot cocoa!  A copy of this month's block will be emailed to you shortly.

Take breaks during the day to post what you have done so far.  Visit some of the others that are participating.  Remember, you don't have to play along all day and we still have that "different time zone issue".

Merry Christmas!

All signed up. My Real World got busier than I'd have liked for our Quilt-a-long Day but I'll see what I can get done.

Hey DH even promised to bring home dinner. How's that for special?
