Christmas Eve

True to form, I finished this gift for our Christmas host late Christmas eve.
You may recognize it as a free pattern from a couple of years ago. At the time I had started to make two, but was having issue with one so put it aside and finished the other (was a gift for my mother in-law). The second one was going to be for me, but it had sat for a long time. When a week before Christmas I decided that I wanted to make a home-made gift for our host it seemed like the perfect guilt to finish. I have to admit that in my head it was a lot more done than it turned out to be in reality. The triangles were cut, and the green border strips were done. The triangles were a bit on the skimpy side, so I had to be creative with my seem allowance and quilting. I found time to sew late at night (who needs sleep anyway) and was able to finish this Christmas eve. Out host was so please to receive this, and that always makes this quilter happy.

I will have more Christmas presents and swap gifts to share soon, I just need to get a bit more organized and take a couple of photos.

That looks great! I love that pattern - I made one for my Mom, maybe I should make one for myself yet too :0)

I really like this pattern - you've done a great job! And we all have to get creative to make things fit from time to time!
