YAY! I am SO glad this top is finished! I had so many other things I had to work on, this got pushed aside. But the top is DONE!!

I put Princess back in the cabinet, I decided to make 4 more applique blocks and was not about to make them on the new machine. I will play around with that when I am in the mood and NOT on a project I have spent so much time on!

This will be the first quilt I make with a cotton back. I have enough of the adorable Santa print to make it, and I want to use it on this quilt. I am worried it will be really stiff, applique is already stiff, but it's not like I will be sleeping with it every night.

It's 61.5" square. I SWEAR I was SO VERY DETERMINED to not make this one a square...I really thought it was going to end up a bit longer than wide. But NOPE! I do NOT know how I always manage to make square quilts!!

Really pretty! I love the shiny satin of the embroidered sides on the gift boxes.

Remember that Huey Lewis and the News song?

It's Hip to be Square!

Thanks so much everyone! This was my Christmas present to myself.


And there is no embroidery on it, it's ALL free hand applique!
