The good thing about leaving Christmas quilts until after Christmas is that you can get some good fabric on sale. I needed some backing fabric for my Christmas presents quilt and since the quilt will be for me, I did not mind waiting. I got the backing fabric, as well as the binding and some great Christmas fabric too.
I have also found a great way to get rid of some of your stash. Magically, it can disappear into your daughter's room, and be used for many things besides quilts. Who knew!
