Run Run as fast as you can...

You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!

Well I've managed to get 25 of them caught up in this quilt top for Project Linus. Don't they look like they are dancing! These guys have been on my to-do list since July. Now I just have to get them basted (or tacked for you Brits :o) and
quilted. This week is half term so I'm hoping to get some good chunks of time to sew in between entertaining my 2 daughters...best laid plans and all that!

Great quilt. My daughter wants one!! I had never heard of the Linus project. Hope you don't mind, but I've nicked your Christmas tree widget:O)

cute, cute, cute....too cute! Love the "sparkle" that the posts add as well. Some little one will love having all those Gingerbread men dancing around on their new quilt.

Those are great blocks. Simple and yet so funny. Thank you for sharing the pictures. I bet the recipient will love it. Hope your DD didn´t bring anything more from school. Take care.
