On the present front my quilty gifts went down a treat. My MIL and FIL loved their braid quilt and it looked just right on the back of their sofa. She couldn't believe I had made it and asked the inevitable question - how long did that take ? I just said quite a while and left it at that - lol !
My sister loved her knitting bag which was finished in the nick of time on Christmas Eve. In fact, my mum who is notoriously hard to please on the present front wants one too so I guess Mothers Day next year is catered for.
Unfortunatley Patricks quillow didn't make the deadline - maybe Easter ! Who knows !
I was chuffed on Christmas Day when my 15 year old nephew Chris asked would I make him a quilt for the beginning of March. He is going on a school exchange to Germany and will be travelling by coach for approx 30 hours and he said he would love something to snuggle up in. I made him a quilt about 3 years ago - lots of brightly coloured football fabrics and my sister says he loves it. I think he has probably outgrown this a bit now and I am delighted he wants another. My mum said he was a bit cheeky to ask but I think it's great that he wants one so will have a think of what I can do.
I mentioned in my last post that I was thinking of doing Bonnies mystery quilt - well guess what-
Took me a while to come up with colours but this is what I'm going with. A lot different than my usual scrappy quilts but I think I will like it.
Had an early night in bed last night with my quilting books and a chocolate reindeer - lol !! Think I have found someinspiration for the 4 Seasons quilt swap. Will do some more on the mystery quilt while I'm mulling some ideas over. Really looking forward to doing this.
Hope you're all finding some time to quilt !!
