Sew, while at the Quilt Market I found a pattern that has my name ALL OVER IT!  For those of you who do not know me, I have an obsession (yes, with fabric, but...) with nutcrackers!  I've been collecting nutcrackers for 30 years. 

Anyway, while strolling down the various isles at the market, I came across Amy Bradley's booth and she had a new quilt displayed: "Merry Christmas".  Its to die for!!  There are nine different characters (i.e. Mr. & Mrs. Clause, reindeer, snowman, etc.) you can place into your quilt blocks.   Your finished quilt can contain all nine characters, or you can choose just one!   

This is a picture of Amy's finished nutcracker quilt which INSTANTLY got my attention.
Needless to say, I quickly absconded purchased a pattern, and when I returned home, I quickly started my own nutcracker quilt.  
 This is a work in progress....but I am so excited to get it finished.  There will be a Show & Tell later!
