Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop



Oh heavens!!  I have been so anxiously awaiting today....These Christmas projects are so much fun to play with. And........have you seen the fantastic pieces that our bloggers have been coming up with????? Wow!!!

Of course; we have to thank our wonderful Madame Samm, and Carol for organizing this for us. They are two fantastic ladies( shhhhhhhhh...they like to compete you know....lol). Don't they make it fun.....And don't forget our great sponsors.

Now for my contributions to this blog hop:

First; I came up with a cute little wall hanging....It's machine appliqued and FMQ. I have made this one before; a few years ago and just had to have another.


The second one is a table runner...done with the same method, but cut the snowflakes with Accuquilt Go Baby and snowflake die!!  It is FMQ also, but doesn't show up much with the busy reindeer background.


I hope you enjoyed the projects and are making your rounds to the other bloggers taking part today.  Here is a list of blogs for your hopping.......
August 6

Now; if you are still here listening to me....I have a giveaway for you
Fabric the same as the background in my table runner for one winner.
It measures 22"x40"

Just leave a comment; I would love to have you follow me; but not necessary to win.
Thanks for being here and I hope you come back.

  58. Marjorie, Congrats on a top 2 finish today - well deserved. I love the ornament hanging. I love the use of elegant golds. And the use of the unusual, leaves to me, is exquisite. Of course, the snowman family is adorable. Thanks for pointing out the reindeer in the background fabric. I have been a follower. I love your projects. I am always anxious to see what you are going to wow me with. With all the times I've looked at your blog, I had not noticed that you hand quilt and even do it for others. I have only hand quilted two baby quilts. I did it this year for my brother's twin grandchildren who were born last September. I wanted to make something special for my nephew's newest children. He asked for a crocheted blanket (and I am not a good at crocheting) for the first daughter. I had crocheted them a queen size throw for their bed and they wanted a matching one for her. So, I didn't give them a choice this time. I just hand quilted 1/4" inside each block. They are a girl and a boy and I used the same fabrics and made blocks and placed them differently. I collect Christmas fabric and started on a Christmas quilt a few years ago. I want each block to be the "background" fabric and a different Christmas fabric. I guess it's kind of a pin wheel design made from a purchased template. Thanks for participating and being a great inspiration. Again, congrats on fabulous projects and your top 2 finish.

  62. I don't know which one is cuter, Marjorie. The snowmen or the ornaments. I guess one is more elegant and the other, more playful. I am a follower from previous blogs. THX for your giveaway opportunity.

  66. Hello Marjorie ~ I just love your wall hanging. For some reason I really love Christmas ornaments like those you've used. Very pretty. The table runner is great too.

    I am already a follower via Bloglovin'. I wanted to double check that I was so I clicked your Bloglovin' button and it doesn't work. All it did was reload the home page of your blog so you might want to double check the way you've coded that so it works.
