Welcome back for another day of the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop! So far we've seen table toppers and pillows and quilts and so many more great ideas! And today we have two more packages to unwrap, from Kate of Katie Mae Quilts and Susan of QuiltFabrication. Do you like to unwrap your packages slowly, cutting through the tape and carefully folding up the paper, or are you a ripper, rushing through to see the goodies inside? Either way, you're sure to be happy with what today's gifts reveal!

So get hopping, folks - then come back here to see today's step for the quilt-along...
Look at that! If you've been following along and keeping up, your quilt will have eight finished blocks today! The end is in sight! (I don't know about you, but when I get to this point I can't wait to make that last block - even if I have to get my husband to take care of dinner that night to do it!) If you still need to refer to the instructions for block construction, check out this post.
And I'm pleased to say that after much pinning and stitching...
I have finally finished all the borders on my medallion version of this quilt! I'm also batting around ideas for quilting it, so if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
There's lots of negative space that screams for something interesting.... But what? That's the question.
So with the goal line in sight, keep on keeping on, as they say - or they used to, when I was a teenager. Boy, did I just date myself!
