Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Just before the big day, I decided to pull out my favorite Christmas scraps and see what I could do. I made a couple baby quilts last year from the fabric and then saw a couple matching prints after the holiday on sale so I bought a little hoping I might figure something out. It took  some  think time but I did not want to compromise the big pattern on the fabric. I wanted to see how fun it was. So, along with the scraps and the few big pieces I had I came up with this one and I just love it! I love the fabrics and it is just happy! I finished it a day or two before the holiday so it did not get used and my husband thinks I should sell it in a craft show. Hmmm.

The back is a nice bright green and red! Happy! I quilted the strips with a beautiful grey thread that came out almost invisible. I was going for the silver tinsel look but I love the way it came out. The red skinny strips are done in red.
My daughter wanted some bags for the baby. Her in-laws are an hour away and they often stay the night with them and she was looking for some travel bags. I forgot to snap a picture so she sent me one and the bags are already full. there is a drawstring bag laying down. They turned out so cute.
And finally. My family is encouraging me to do a craft show in the spring and sell some of the many quilts I have hanging around here. So, My middle daughter found this in an antique place and she sanded it and stained it. It should hold several quilts for display. No excuses now.
