Happy Holidays!

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.

The Tumbler throw quilt is one I made for myself.  Selfish, I know:)
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!
Hoping everyone has an enjoyable weekend!   I've missed blogging, and hope to be back on schedule soon.

The quilts are lovely, you're very talented.

I also love the photo of your snow-lined street above. Is this where you sit and watch all the bicyclists? What a beautiful neighborhood.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Enjoy the time.
