HO HO HO Blog Hop

Hi, today is my day for the Ho Ho Ho blog hop. I'm sorry to say that my project didn't get finished. I've had some family and health issues along the way. But I didn't want to be a total no-show. I really love these blog hops and appreciate all the work that Madam Samm  and her cheerleaders put into them. A big thanks to Carol for organizing this one.

I have wanted to do this project for a few years now. I finally have started it. It's call Christmas Irish Chain. There were a lot of Christmas patterns I really liked but this is the one I chose. I worked very hard to get the top done so that I'd have something to show on my hop day. Hopefully, I can get it quilted, bound and finished before Christmas. So, without further ado, here is my Christmas Irish Chain top.


Hope that you've all enjoyed your short visit to my little part of blogland. Please stop by these other wonderful blogs that have shared my day.

  9. Maybe it's just me, but I consider a quilt top a finish....quilting is a second finish. It is lovely. Thanks for sharing and I am so glad you were able to participate in the hop....isn't it fun!?!?!?

  10. That is a really beautiful quilt top. I would count that as a finish! Consider quilting it under the Christmas tree. It makes the totally finished article that much more special (and gives you more time). Well done.
