Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

My wish for all of you is that this holiday season you spend lots of time with those that you love!!!!  Even though not all of my children will be home for Christmas, I am sure my house will be filled with love and laughter.  For that I am so thankful!

I have finished my Christmas sewing, and since the last gift will be given later today, I can share my projects now.

This little quilt was a gift for Katja.  She loves text fabrics and orange.  I looked high and low for a text that I liked for the printing.  I couldn't find one, so at the last minute I drew the letters freehand.  After lots of revision I came up with the version shown.

This quilt is going to my daughter's house.

The fabric is "The Ghastlies" by Alexander Henry.  It looks like a cross between Halloween and Christmas.  I was given the fabric and challenged to come up with a quilt.  I couldn't resist!  Leslie understands my sense of humour and said she would like the quilt.  It will make it to her house shortly.

Last up are my "sew together bags."  The yellow and blue is made from Moda "Best Day Ever" fabric. The second bag uses "Cotton and Steel."  It is the new line that will be in stores early in the new year.  Both bags are for quilty friends.

Enjoy the holidays, and stay safe!!!
