Happy Wednesday-Before-Thanksgiving! Is today a cooking/baking day for you, a traveling day, a cleaning day, or a decorating day? For me, it's a QUILTING day! This has been my week off from quilting for clients, and I've been hustling along with the custom quilting on my own Christmas quilt, hoping to get it finished and ready to display for the holidays. I just wanted to pop in and share a few quick images of my progress so far. This is the portion of the center medallion that I was able to mark and quilt yesterday:

By the way, before I go any further I should mention that the pattern book for this quilt, Jingle Quilt by Erin Russek, will be on sale tomorrow through Monday for C&T Publishing's Black Friday and Cyber Monday site wide 30% off holiday sale event. If you've been thinking you might want to make your own version of my Jingle quilt, or you've had your eye on any other quilting or crafting books from C&T Publishers, use the codes BLACKFRIDAY30 (valid November 24-27) and CYBERMONDAY30 (on November 28) to get 30% off your order.

Seriously, I can't recommend Erin's patterns and instructions enough. This is my very-first-ever appliqué project after years and years of admiring appliqué quilts and thinking they were too difficult for me to attempt. Erin's instructions are so clear and her methods are goof-proof, even for beginners.
