I had two BIG finishes this month, but could not show it until my DD and DS had opened their Christmas gift. I guess you have seen some blocks called Svennebrevet on my blog. They was to be included in to big quilts.
One in brown and blue for my DS
And I found a lovely brown backing. I did not shoot a photo of him opening his gift, but he was very happy to receive it.
For my DD Imade one in pink and red with a touch of green,
and I used a pink floral fabric for backing. Both quilts are longarm quilted by Merethe. I have never been able to do this quilting on my little Janome sewingmachine. The quilts are BIG and Merete quilted them in just a couple of days and I had yards by yards of binding to do.
My DD was so happy with her quilt and it is already in use in her bedroom.
I got a lot of wonderful presents from my children
family and good friends. As you see there is a lot of quilty presents so it looks like I have been on Santas nice list.
Spending time these Christmas days watcing old Christmas movies and stitching, until I got an SMS on the phone asking how much I had done on my homework on the antique sampler project……………..I tell you more in my next post.
Saying for today:
