This and that ...

Christmas came and went. My kids loved their presents and left too quickly to celebrate with their Dad. My mum LOVES her quilt, in fact she is still gushing over it each time we speak!

There was plenty of this...
And I got busy quilting this...


Before Christmas I saw this fabric from Moda, 'Close to my Heart', so close to mine I bought what was left in the shop! I've had a little play with some FQs from the Astor Manor range and am currently piecing the back.



I quilted this one today too...



And have loaded up another of my older tops onto the frame, and am working on that. I've been busy with my studying too, catching up on some of the activities including painting, and quilting.
Is it me or does the fast approaching New Year drive you to finish a few more things before this year is out?
Happy Quilting!
