A finish for Christmas

I'm so pleased with myself, I made this quilt in under 2 weeks, It turned out so pretty. I decided to use it as my Christmas quilt even though its not made with Christmas fabrics. I found the pattern on Moda fabrics web site. I used my Bliss fabric and the odd bit of Ruby.

All I need to do is sew on the binding,




I'll have it ready to hang on the wall by mid week I reckon. Do you like it?




I had to share my new Jane McGrath rose that has flowered for the first time, its just stunning








And my lovely geranium I grew from a cutting. Summer is always a pretty time in my garden.


I hope you found some sewing time today, I'm off to start sewing my binding.

You know I love it, I always love your quilts. That is a great pattern & still looks festive without obvious fabrics. The June McGraph rose is so pretty. I love geraniums because even in Perth heat they stay alive - haha. Have a great week. Tracee xx

What a great quilt it turned out to be. I just bought a layer cake of Ruby yesterday and don't have a plan for it.
