It's a good day

Thank you to Jenny who helped me make progress with binding my Deckade the Halls quilt at our Guild last night. Many hands do indeed make light work. Ella had also brought her version along with a lovely cream / gold background in more traditional fabrics. Having them side by side illustrated how different fabrics can make the same pattern look so different.

The two weekly blocks have been lovely to make and now it's ready for Christmas.

All of the blocks are lovely from the mugs of cocoa to the wreaths and presents.

Hanging out the Christmas stockings and decorating the tree with ornaments.

 And eating a delicious gingerbread man. I am delighted with how mine has come out with it's modern choice of fabrics from whatever I had in my stash that I thought would go with the blocks already made. All tied together with the snowflake white on white background from Moda.

Now I'm in the Christmas spirit, I think I'll finish the squares for my knitted Christmas bunting. Just two left to knit, I think. And thank you to Matthew for holding up my quilt. He had just returned from successfully passing his driving theory test, next task is to book some driving lessons.

I love your version of Deck ade! It's so colorful and festive. Good choices. I can't believe that you have it all finished! Congratulations!

What a lovely Christmas quilt! I really like it in your colour choices. Did you quilt it yourself or send it out to a long armer?
