Merry Christmas my dear blogging friends and followers.
If you get a minute to relax I hope it is with needle and thread in a comfy chair!

I think this might be one of my most favourite quilts that I have made so far. Originally, it was meant to be just a bed runner for my sister’s guest room. However, I enjoyed making the blocks so much, it grew and it grew. She chose the colours and pattern in April when she was here visiting. I had the top done by June, but with a busy summer I didn’t get around to quilting it until October.
I quilted this more then any other quilt I have done. I loved doing these loopy flowers in the center. I also added arches/fans to the border and some stippling too.
Lily of course has to have final inspection…..I think it passed!
I made two pillow shams from the border print as well. (oops forgot to take pictures of them).
I can’t wait to be a guest in her room!!

I even found some fabric from the same vintage!
|I quilted it as best I could in the ditch and around 1 square|
As promised in yesterday’s post I have pictures of completed projects, yahoo
I actually made something for us, 6 placemats using up the rest of a honey bun and other scraps from Kansas Troubles by Moda. I used the ‘Quilt as you go’ method on some of them and some were traditionally pieced & quilted. They all have different bindings.
I hope it is warmer wherever you are. Winter has arrived in Calgary!
