I didn't say which Christmas, but here's one for OPAM

Ohhhh about a year ago I started to hand blanket stitch the Nancy Halvorsen quilt The 12 Days of Christmas.  Yep it was to be ready for Christ003mas, but I'm sure I didn't say which one.  Well, just to prove that I don't just make mini pillows, I finally finished the quilt.  The picture really doesn't show it off very  well and I'm still a wee bit unsure as to whether or not to add beads and buttons but it's finally finished after hanging as a 'top' for ages in my sewing room while I decided how to border and quilt it.  002 Nancy has done a great job on this design and some of the blocks are so elegant I particularly like the partridge in a pear tree.  The colours I used were fairly none traditional but I think the teal colour compliments the other colours I used.  What I'm most pleased about is that the entire thing was made from my stash.
Have a great day stitchingmy signature
