It’s time to turn the binding.

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!

This will be a quick photo heavy post as Paul Jr surprised me this morning by knocking on the door (he forgot his keys!) at 8am vs the 3pm I expected him.   He went into work at 3am to finish off his last few reports and hit the road in the early hours to make the 2.5 hour drive home!

Our true celebration won’t begin until tomorrow late afternoon when Paul Sr is home from work (yes working on both Christmas Eve and Day…the railroad never closes) but tonight will be filled with game playing and laughter I am sure.

In keeping with a family tradition there will be no meat  served today.  So dinner is easy peasy as it will be filled with smoked salmon, shrimp, and potato pancakes!  YUM…I can hardly wait!



I did want to share with you all the Castle Wall quilt as I picked it up from “Longarm Bob” on Friday.   He did an awesome job on it!   I was able to get into the studio two days ago and got the binding in it so it’s all ready to sit and flip while watching movies with the kids.

I hope to have it finished so we can sleep under it on New Year’s Eve to bring 2014 to a close.  Quite appropriate for my 2014 On The Road Project don’t you think.  It doesn’t always work out that way.  This quilt just has that “kismet” going.

Just a reminder that this is the final week to order your Castle Wall Acrylic Templates at the introductory price of $20 a set.  You can find them in my webstore here. 

The Castle Wall project really was great fun and I am going to be making another quilt with the blocks I make along with students while teaching hand piecing.

Now that Emily is in the house the border pattern will be written and up on the Castle Wall page before year end, I needed her help on a few graphics on the pattern.  And just wait to I tell you of some of the ideas she has for 2015…wow it’s going to be an awesome year!

I can hardly wait to January 1st when I will show you what I have planned for my 2015 On The Road Project!

In the meantime here’s some more Traveler’s Wall (the quilt name) pics to enjoy!


Paisley is the panto name! Perfect for this busy quilt.
