Merry Christmas

Here is a close up picture of some of the details. This is a Quilt As You Go. I made 90 blocks. It is 119X131 inches. The new owners of the quilt grew up in the 60's so they know about Pink Panther. I had to use that in the quilt as a  fun thing. 

It was so heavy I had to move it to the dining room table to do the final connections. You can see I have a 20 year old domestic machine. That was a lot of weight to support. The quilt is quilted with 60/40 batting. It weighs 15lbs. 

Here it is in all of it's glory. It is bound and delivered. He was thrilled with it and his Mother called me and was so nice to praise me on the quality of the quilt. Oh and yes he paid me for it in advance also. 

I hope all of you have your Christmas shopping and sewing done. I have been cleaning and doing some cooking in advance for Christmas Eve. 

We have our family gathering on Christmas Eve. I hope you have a very nice Christmas and enjoy your day where ever you live. I will see you probably after the first of the year. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Chris

More progress

This is so big I had to take it out to the driveway to take a picture. It is about 117X120 inches. I am ahead of schedule, but it will be done before Christmas.

I hope you all are getting your sewing done for Christmas. I still have five sashing strips to join all the sections. This is a QAYG project. Then of course the binding. 

I always wash a quilt before I give it as a gift. This one will have to go to the laundry mat to use the bigger machines. 

I will get my Granddaughters today for a couple days and be on the road taking them back and forth to school. They live about 30 miles away from me. My son and his wife went to SC for a business trip. So a busy couple days going on in ,my house. 

Hope you are staying warm and healthy. Chris
