Design Wall Monday December 20

It is getting very close to Christmas, which means I need to get moving on these Christmas quilts.  I went out yesterday to get some options for border fabric.  There is quite a bit of green in my stash, but very little in the red range.  I thought that I could use whatever doesn't go into the Christmas quilts in the next step of RRCB.  I think I'll do a 2 inch red border surrounded by a wide green border.  Thanks Amy for organizing the Block Of the Month.  It was a lot of fun, and I got two quilts out of it!
I thought it was going to be a nice quiet day at home for the first real day of winter break.  Instead, Sydney has basketball camp from 10:30 to 3:30.  Ryan has Legos at 11:00 and Anna has theater on ice at 4:00.  Not exactly a nice quiet day after all.  I think I managed to work in the orthodontist and vet later this week in case we were getting bored. Thankfully though, the Ice Skating Christmas Show is OVER!  The girls had fun, but they are both pretty happy to be done.  There isn't any regular ice skating until the new year, so they can all take a little breather. 
Now, I'll go see what everyone else is up to in Design Wall Monday before I start my day.

Very pretty quilts. Hope you get them finished. This is the first day of our break, but my guy is off too and he gets kiddo limo service duty this week!

It's great that you got two quilts made from the BOMs. I like to make blocks and then have to push to get the tops made. Love the setting and the fabrics you chose.

Love your quilts!! I always run through the last week before Christmas like a crazy person with all the things that need to get done. Hopefully next week will be a little boring.

Your blocks are all so pretty and came together just beautifully in the quilts. Hope you find time to sew amid all the driving and running around town!
