I prepared for Christmas vacation in Green Bay by prepping the upcoming appliqued blocks up to the point of hand-sewing. I believe I had three appliqued blocks prepped. Surprisingly, I got all three done in Green Bay, even the dreaded J1, which took forever - more on that tomorrow. I even fired up my Mom's sewing machine to complete two additional paper-pieced blocks.

It doesn't take much fabric to make a DJ block, so it was a terrific opportunity to inexpensively expand my batik collection. I really enjoy going to this quilt store; they have a wonderful collection of batiks, Kaffe Fassett and novelty fabrics. A trip to MFQS is always on my "must do" list when I visit GB.
