ShopHop and Christmas Goodies

It is over 100 degrees outside, but I am in the mood for Christmas. The Big ShopHop is just six days away and I just had to pop in at the local Quilting Niche' for a preview. AND THERE IT WAS>>>these 9-Fat Quarter packages of the Robert Kaufman, "Holiday Flourish III". Using one of Debbie Frank's Fancy Girl Design patterns ("Baby, It's You!"), which requires 9 FQ's, we pulled 1 1/2 yards for background, 3/4 yard for small border and 2 1/4 yards for large border.

WELL, needless to say, my goal to quilt three tops before starting another one has been broken. Out came the ruler, the rotary cutter, a cup of coffee and USA TV! It's PIECING time in my house again.

Um, I think those rules are suppose to be broken! They look like scrumptious fabrics.

Those are georgeous fabrics. Can't wait to see what you make with it.

I can't stick to my "finish up XX projects b4 beginning another" statements either! That fabric is just too irresistable.

Totally gorgeous! Can't wait to see your top. Oh, and I like USA TV for piecing too!
