Ready for Christmas!!!

I just love my new christmas decoration!
I decided to add a wider border simply because I love the red rose fabric!

From the beginning I had planned to quilt lines by hand, but I ended up making swirls, loops, waves and a wide feather in the roseborder... on machine.

Most of my fabrics af scraps/stash - so is the backing.

I will be back soon with my SKOFW fabrics
- and pics of the other projects form this lovely book, I´ve allready made!
