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!
