Happy Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve. How are you feeling? A little relief along with anticipation? I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing Christmas and lot's of fun and merriment too.

My daughter will get her quilt tomorrow. It will have two sides with the binding stitched down and I'll finish the other two tomorrow. Just in case I can get it done before she wakes up it will be put in a gift bag. I can't wait to see her face.

Here's a pic of the front, a close up, and the back. I had the quilter do a popcorn pattern in turquoise thread and it came out so nice even on the dark border. Even the back is fun. When I went to make the binding I couldn't find the fabric that matched the border and had to run to the quilt shop. Well, when I got it back from the quilter I found the extra fabric I had bought for the binding - it was on the back. Geesh. Insanity.

I'm so proud to have used almost all scraps for the front and back except the border/binding fabric.

Now I'm looking forward to getting back to blogging, the fabric sales at the quilt shops on Friday, new projects, a new year, and a fresh start.
