The fabric is of course Anna Maria Horner's Sketchbook (that I picked up at The Needle Shop when I was in Chicago a few weeks ago).
this tutorial very helpful (particularly her recommendation for dealing with the end of the cording).
Off to finish more Christmas presents! (Maybe next year I won't procrastinate and find myself finishing gifts in December...doubtful, but I can hope!)
Happy Saturday! Linking up with Amanda Jean's Friday party. (Did you see the amazing scrap quilt she just finished? Wow)
