Shh..this is one of those rare one footed quilt tops! Don't make too much noise or you might scare it off! lol
Well, I haven't gotten the borders on yet, as you can see, but here is my Christmas Lights quilt top. I really have to start taking pics during the day when there is more light. As soon as I do get the borders on, I will take a better pic of the finished project. I am really please with this one. I know there were some folks who didn't like the layout all that well in this mystery, but I think with my color choices, it worked out well. So far I am 3 for 3 on loving the mysteries that I have done. Boy...am I lucky or what??!!
I am rapidly accruing too many tops, though. With this one, I will have 5 tops that need to be quilted. Well, 2 of those need borders, also. Plus the Loopy over You that is half quilted. My finger is finally up to quilting, I think, so that is it. You heard it here. NO MORE QUILT TOPS UNTIL I QUILT AT LEAST 2 OF THESE TOPS!! Sorry for yelling, but I need for you to hear me and to hold me accountable. Sigh..this is going to be soooooooo hard. I have so many more I want to start on. Hmm...maybe if I already have a top started I could finish it....or if I at least have the fabric cut out....or if I own the fabric..or know what fabric I want to get for it.......


  1. Maureen, it looks awesome!!! I didn't start this mystery, but I have the first 2 parts and I am thinking that I will absolutely have to do this one. Great job!

  2. I didn't start this one either BUT I am enjoying seeing everyones tops.
    Note, there is no reason to quilt the tops before you start something else. Even if the top NEVER gets quilted it can still be gifted. I have tons of tops that may end up as donation pieces or gifted to the grandkids when they get older etc... I have enjoyed finishing projects given to me and assume someone else will get a kick out of finishing my UFO's Sew when you feel like sewing, Five is a nice start.

  3. Only 5 to be quilted. I have loads. I still make more tops before I get the finished ones quilted though. It's hard to resist making more tops

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  4. I'd love to have a stack of tops needing to be quilted - then it would mean I had completed some of my projects! ;)

    Love your Christmas Lights - I haven't started putting my blocks together yet but I better get on the ball about it since I want to give it to my husband for Christmas. I've been showing him the different settings that others have shared - but he is a stickler for the original pattern ;)

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  5. Love it, love it, love it! I can't wait to see the finished product!

    P.S. I thought I had already commented on here!
