I know it has been quite a while since I've posted anything, but I wanted to wish each and every one Happy Holidays!
We celebrate Christmas in a quiet way, very little shopping, lots of cooking and eating, and lots more time to spend with family (since we quit frantically shopping and trying to please everyone:))
I've finished 4 quilts in the last month, and have two poor quality pictures. The star was made as a Christmas present for my father-in-law, who is already sleeping under this heavy quilt! It has a heavy cotton backing with a warm n' natural batting, so it will keep him warm this winter.
I cut the pieces out with the tumbler die on my Accuquilt GO! which makes the piecing a dream.
The shapes fit perfectly together, and quilting this took the longest. I meandered in lazy shapes, and it has a nice texture after washing. I made my mother a similar quilt from pink floral fabric and green and white floral with butterflies as a Christmas present. I hope she likes hers as much as I do mine!
