Christmas 2012

Posted Monday, December 31st, 2012 in Christmas gift, Quilting | Tags: , ,

It has been a long time since I have posted. I have been very busy working on quilts for Christmas gifts for my family. I even made a wall hanging for my grand-dog. I hadn’t planned to give quilts this year until I found some new patterns that were perfect for Jennifer and Jeff. I decided I had to make a quilt for each person. I originally was going to use the same pattern to make quilts for the guys but Jennifer convinced me that Tristan really wanted needed a Zelda quilt. She designed the blocks for it  and I started  working on it in December. I burned the midnight oil making quilts the last two weeks before Christmas.

Please ignore the mess in the background. These pictures were taken after all the gifts were opened. The guys stood on the couch to hold up the quilts for pictures.

I am taking a break from quilting to put my house back into order and to give my sore fingers a rest. I received some really nice quilting books and notions for Christmas that I am excited to use soon. Give me a couple of days and I will be back in the quilting mood!

I REALLY love your Zelda Quilt. Would you be interested in selling the pattern? It is the best Zelda quilt I have seen.
