It's uber busy, but I'm getting used to it.  I was thinking of sashing, but have about decided to go with it as is, with a bit of shifting of blocks.  I find that as I put it together, careful as I can be, they seem to still shift themselves a bit anyway though.

A crude facsimile of the difference with sashing.  I am stubbornly sticking to Santa's way though, I do believe.

We ate dinner with Hailee and her mom and sister (among others) the other night and I promised her a hanging for her door.. She gave me some specs, and this is what I ended up with, it's about 9 inches by 11 inches.  She's a Bruins fan, and so wanted some black, white and yellow and this was all I could find.   Hailee is 6.  We were on the way home from seeing Alan Jackson at Sea World, and he was outstanding.

I have 3 queen sized beds, and want to have 3 Christmas quilts.  I have my Iowa Christmas (Carolina Christmas Mystery), and now I'll have my Santa Blocks when it is finished.  Today, I got a start sewing together my leftover strips to make a rail fence.  I was planning to do sashing for it, and have fabric ordered from Connecting Threads clearance, but if I have enough leftovers, I may just go without the sashing.  I'm hoping to make my house look Christmasyer, with a minimum of decorating.

Good for you getting an early start on Christmas quilts. I find that if I wait until October to think about Christmas projects, they never happen. I hope to see photos of those 3 quilts on your beds at holiday time. You've got a great start!
