Christmas Is In My Heart

Christmas Is In My Heart Blog Hop
It is not sneaking up on me this year!  Thanks to Marian at
Preparing for this hop has put me in the Christmas mode early and that will enable me to enjoy the season at a leisurely pace.  Well maybe leisurely is not the exact word, more like less hectic. My hat is off to Marian for all the work she has put in on this hop.  Be sure to visit her blog daily as there will be a free pattern given away. Yesterday's was a precious soft sculptured icicle 

You will want to visit all of the Christmas creativity that is being shared by these
Christmas spirited ladies on today's portion of the hop.

I had quite a bit of Christmas fabric in my stash and decided to use some of that. 
 Now I'll have a little more room for this years designs when it's on sale.  This lap quilt is made of a basic hodge podge design that I basically made up as I went along.  I don't do fancy well.
Not too terribly bad, pardon me while I pat myself on the back.  I only had to rip out a few.
Now you know I'm showing one of the better ones, right?  I'm rambling.
 Sorry, let me get back to the matters at hand.
We were requested to put a heart somewhere on our project,
 I quilted with my heart. 8-)  This is my first FMQ with anything besides straight lines.

Fall is in full force with winter very close.  No pretty foliage left except these two
begonias under the deck.

I was thinking baby/toddler quilt or animal lover throw because of the fabric I chose for the border, it helped liven it up and pull the colors together.
