Tis the Season

I finished my' Tis the Season 'quilt . It will have pride of place for next year . It is very pretty , did not take long to do. I purchased the pattern from Just quilting shop in Newcastle U,K . The pattern is by Natalie Bird .

I was a late riser today, looked out , it was cold so back to bed with my Andriani Trigiani book , and my tray with tea and a biscuit .

Thinking back to 2011 it was a good year for me . Two holidays , very memorable . Nice quilt shows . Some nice quilts finished and passed on to family . Nice days spent with bluebell .

Today I hope to put a quilt on my frame . The frame is in the garage so if it's cold it will have to wait till the sun shines . Looking at my UFOs it could be a while before I start another quilt .

Yesterday bluebell and myself went to the yearly fabric sale at the fabric guild . Spent wisely with future projects in mind . Lot's of fresh projects and BOMs on the blogs.

How striking your quilt is, I love the mixture of reds.
Cant think of anything nicer than a warm bed, Adriana Trigiani book (one of my favourites) and a tea tray!

Lovely quilt and I like your choice of fabrics! Wish I lived near Leicester now and then lol!

How pretty! Red is my favorite, and your home will be so welcoming with this greeting folks next year!
Happy New Year, how fun to start it off with new fabric purchases ~

Love the colours, it will certainly look nice and warm on your bed.
This year I am trying not to buy fabric unless I have a particular project in mind, don't know how well I will make out though, can't seem to resist some of the fantastic fabric in the shops.

I love this quilt it always looks so different every time I see it, it a great pattern if everyone can make it their own. I might have to make one this year as yours is stunning.
