I made this for my step mother, I am not sure if she looks at my blog but if she does.....Merry Christmas. I try to make her something every year. I got this kit from a friend in my guild. This is the site grabngokits. They are so fun to make. She gives you everything you need in the kit to work on it, anywhere. She even encloses a little pair of scissors.
I didn't pay attention to where the leaves would fall and realized that when I put the red petals on. I ended up doing this one on the machine but I am working on one by hand right now. I have enjoyed sitting by the fire and the Christmas tree working on it.
I finally put my quilt under the table and here is why. I was lecturing at the Hannah Dustin Quilt Guild in Hudson NH last week and brought this as part of my lecture (you can see more photos of it if you scroll down). I told them that it was to put under the glass of my dinning room table. One of the questions at the end of the lecture was "Have you put it under the glass yet?" and I had to admit that I hadn't. I guess I wasn't ready to commit that it was finished and that now one will spill something that seeps under the glass.
