Christmas Finished Early

If your name is Maria, stop reading now.

If your name is John, keep your Limey mouth shut until December. ;-)


A few months ago, my mum requested I make her a quilt for Christmas, and as we thumbed through some pattern books, she fell in love with a quilt filled with blues and greens - colours that reminded her of Trinidad, where she grew up.

The pattern looked easy enough, so off we went to Jo-Anns for several hours of giggling and fabric selecting - which she hasn't seen since.

Last weekend, I spent an entire day sewing, piecing, sashing, and binding a quilt, and finishing it off with cute little ties.

I hope she likes it.

What do you all think? Pretty colours, no?


Finished quilt size: 62 x 42 inches
