Here's "Sugar Plum Dolly" all finished.  I just love the way these quilts fluff up when washed.

A little closer view of those fluffed-up seams!  such fun to make. (A definite Peek-a-Boo)

I have to thank Connie, at "Green Apple Orchard "  for her tremendous video tutorial on cutting these seams. I followed her instructions--and VOILA--it came out perfectly.

That finishes up my Christmas sewing--and I have another  TA---DAH---finished all my shopping.  PHEW!  I am so relieved to have figured out what to give everyone.  Some years it is hard to know.
One last photo of the finished big "Sugar Plum Fairy" quilt:

And I am dancin' outta here for this grey Saturday afternoon...see you all later,
