Well, I am happy to report I am getting smarter in my older age. I had 2 dates set aside with a quilter. One was for my dad's quilt and the other one was originally meant for my friend who is retiring. I had bought a layer cake for her quilt, but I was not sure I was happy with it. Then I thought I should make a Christmas/winter quilt since I have never made one of those. Finally I smartened up and realized the quilt I should get finished was the one for my son. It was a completed quilt top. I had already made my husband, my daughter and myself quilts this year, so it will be nice to have one for him too.
This means I get to play around and have fun. Other than my Christmas swap I have no pressures on me for the next 2 months. I decided to work on some of my winter/Christmas quilts and just enjoy myself.
Here is my Winter Wonderland quilt. I got the fabric last year for Christmas from my parents. My mom and I had been to a quilt lecture in the fall organized by my LQS. One of the stores had a sample of this quilt and the fqs. The pattern was a free download from http://www.allpeoplequilt.com
I immediately fell in love with it. Snowmen are my favourite. You can keep them up so much longer than Christmas items. I hurried home at lunch today to finish the last few blocks so I could show you.
I have also started working on my Sheri Berry Christmas quilt. I am doing stars, but I have not figured out a pattern yet. I also have my half-square triangles done for my pinwheel quilt. I just need to sew them together.
