Twister 2011

Snowman stitchery 2011 (I think)

Corrr Think this one was made in 2006

Made for my mum in 2005/6 and it's my favourite Christmas quilt


I always seem to have lots of quilts and wallhangings to get out for Christmas,my favourite is the one I made for mum when I'd just started with patchwork, I still love it now and it has gorgeous poinsettia's and lots of gold.
Last year was twister phase, so easy and such fun and my first go at FMQ on the frame.
If I get chance this year I'm going to try and get a Christmas tree one done, I think I've left it a bit late LOL but this year's addition is the Holiday Medley quilt.  I'm not getting my tree out this year until at least the 16th, probably the weekend after because with 3 cats and the puppy, it isn't likely to stay up much...but I think I may be tempted to get the quilts out before :)
