My entry for the Handmade Christmas Challenge is a notebook cover. I used the journal cover from Moda Bakeshop for the directions.

I got the pinwheel quilt basted this week as well as my basket quilt (but just took pictures of the pinwheel quilt. I have been using Cindy Needham's method of basting the quilt on one large table and it has been working quite well for me. I use picnic table clamps to keep the fabric tight.
Yesterday I started quilting and after quilting some large free motion feathers that I planned to do all over the quilt top, I decided I didn't like them, so I will be ripping that out. Luckily, it's only about 18" square. Now I am quilting some skinny fern-like feathers in the sashing and some lines in the pinwheels. I still haven't figured out what I will do on the navy squares.
I don't know if you can see what is quilted in the sashing or not, but both of these pictures show it.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post.
