My applique project took a back seat since Thanskgiving while I addressed postcards and did my Christmas decorating. I'm done with Christmas preps now even though my tree will not light. For a while we could get light for 10 minutes but it's totally dead now. After Christmas I'll take it down and return it to the store....they've already agreed to take it back even though I bought it last year.
Meanwhile, I'm saving electricity and am back to my applique.
Remember that this is the center of the quilt and it will be on point. I have 3 of 4 corners done! I'll start the 4th corner tonight and plan to finish it Thrusday night. I hope to start sewing the rest of the blocks to the center the week after Christmas.
This is the Cowboys Bucs block that I finished last night.
This is the block that I'll start tonight. As I look at this photo I think I need to make another orange circle tonight. This one is way too lumpy.

you could get a couple strands of lights for this year and wrap around the tree to make it more festive - unless of course you just don't feel like it! I hate pre-lite trees - always trouble I think.

Beautiful, cheerful quilt. I love the old-fashioned-ness of it!
