On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... a whole lotta stuff! Do you know that if you add up all the gifts just given on that one day (the 11th), it's 66 gifts? And all of the gifts for twelve days is 364 - over half of which are birds. Do you still think they were true loves after all that? (Enquiring minds want to know!)
I hope you're enjoying all the little "gifts" that have been shared over the past ten days! And guess what - there's more! Today we'll be hearing from Carole at From My Carolina Home and Karrin from Karrin's Crazy World. I can't wait to see what's going to jump on to my "must make" list today!

So get hopping, folks - then come back here to see today's step for the quilt-along...
With all nine blocks done, it's time to join them together in to your quilt top! I sewed mine together in three rows, carefully matching those triangle corners so my points stayed nice. OK, some of them aren't perfect, but you can't tell, can you? Do your best and know that small imperfections won't show after it's quilted and washed!
And look at that - you've got a finished quilt top! It's a great size for a wall hanging or for a table or piano topper - and if you're really brave, you could cut into it and turn it into a fine tree skirt! Or you can do like me and turn it into a medallion center of a larger top. Mine is coming right along - I found a lovely white and red polka dot for the backing, extended with a little bit of that great red stripe, which is also the binding. Can you tell I love red stripes?
Come back tomorrow for our final day of blog hopping, and also the glamour shots of my new quilt! I'll have a link-up party if you want to share pictures of your progress, too.
One more day!
