My energies now will be engaged in family and festivities, although sewing will be squeezed in when I can manage it, of course!
I wish you all the best of good wishes for both Christmas and the forthcoming year. May you enjoy good health, much happiness and plenty of crafting goodness!

I would have finished the quilting completely if I hadn't had caught one side of the backing up and folded it under by accident. I have a few inches of quilting to remove so that I can fix it.
Looking forward to making and adding the binding to this. My happy colours for sewing!

I'd already split them into warm and cool colours, so it was a simple task to lay them out and chain piece them.
The cool colours in an alternate pattern - more saturated colour blocks mixed in with those that have more black and white in them.
A fairly efficient use of them, and the size of the lap quilts will be extended by the use of sashing and border fabric.
Enjoyable, easy patchwork - a deliciously relaxing background to the preparations for Christmas. I'm now in the happy state of almost all Christmas cards having been written and sent, and almost all the Christmas presents wrapped and put into the appropriate places! Things are going well!
