Finished Quilts , Phew!!

This week I have been concentrating on getting quilts finished for Christmas . It was no mean feat .
The red Christmas quilts are just bits and pieces from my stash .

This quilt is cot size . It is a Christmas panel built up round the sides , it has a 2oz batting and backed with fleece so it will be cozy .


This is a shirt quilt , I really feel like hanging on to this one myself for a while . Perhaps I shall feel different in a couple of weeks

Another Christmas quilt .
I feel it would be nice to just sit and read or watch dvds for a few evenings .
 
I had a nice surprise yesterday . I sold a quilt 2 weeks ago . It was the Dresden medallion that I showed on my blog . The person who bought it was so delighted with it she sent me a card with an extra £40 .WOW .
 
I have also had a very sad shock this week . My next door neighbour died very suddenly . I feel sad and cannot get my mind focussed at present .  It makes one realise how fragile life can be .She was a lovely person , I shall miss her.
Bye for now , time for a cup of tea.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your neighbour- especially hard at this time of year.
The shirt quilt is definitely the one I love the best!

sorry to hear about your neighbour, it will be a hard Christmas for her family. 3 lovely quilts, all so different but equally appealing. Congrats on your quilt sale, is this the first of many?

Your projects turned out beautiful. I especially like the one made from shirts...so soft and snuggly. We are in the middle to a winter storm. So far we have about 9 inches of snow on top of ice. So far we are keeping warm and safe -- as long as the power keeps working. Barb

Hi Cottonreel.
Nice to see you have been busy. Your quilts look lovely. I have been busy making cushions for Christmas.
Sorry to hear about your neighbour. It always seems worse at Christmas time. Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
