A Labour of Love

It is finally time to show you how the Redwork Christmas quilt turned out (minus the binding which I am still doing):

This is the top of the quilt a little closer:

This is the middle bit:

And this is the bottom bit:

Because the green on the 'fa-la-la-la-la' material was hard to match, I chose the backing fabric in a red to tie in with the redwork:

Here are all the redwork blocks a little closer too.

A fire, set and all ready to be lit:

A snowman to remind us that Christmas only comes once a year!

The block I was doing while I was in labour with Little Snicker:

A tasty gingerbread house (unfortunately you can't eat this one!):

Some reindeer to pull Santa's sleigh:

and some funny little elves, packing up santa's sack:

Matty's aunty did a BRILLIANT job of quilting it together for me.
Since I am definitely NOT a quilter, I was glad that she just worked with what I had and didn't complain at all that my piecing together of the materials may have left a little to be desired!

Ahhh... so glad for it to be pretty much finished, yet so sad!


  1. Yay! It looks awesome Michelle! Well done!

  2. Oh my gosh, it is totally gorgeous. I love it. You did a brilliant job - just absolutely beautiful. Well done - Megan from Handmade n Heartfelt

  3. Congratulations Michelle... It's stunning! All that hard work paid off brilliantly. Aunty T.

  4. I have to say, the pics almost don't do it justice. It looks freakin' amazing in real life!!
