One for me!
It didn't start out as mine ... but I am so happy it ended up as mine!
this one, I decided to go to the LQS and pick up some fun holiday prints and make a Christmas quilt for my mom. I designed and made a few of the blocks during the week, with the plan of finishing it up at the cabin over the weekend. My folks are off to spend Christmas with my sister-in-law and her daughter while my brother spends the holiday in Iraq, so we had planned to stop by their house on Sunday night and exchange gifts on our way back to town from the cabin.
Twelve Days of Christmas by Sharyn Sowell sashed with a teal solid I picked up from JoAnns. I bound it in Alexander Henry's Sew Christmas Buttons. The back is pieced with some Kona solid and the collection of fabrics from the front.
My mom is thrilled with the cross quilt that I gave her and I am delighted that I ended up with this one. The colors are really rich and I love the idea of having it to pull out each year!
Hope your holiday projects are all close to getting completed!
All the best
