December - Susan Oh 2 Sew

Oops - almost the end of December and I haven't posted my December block - those two Quilt Police will be after me!!!   LOL

As I have mentioned before, this quilt will be for my eldest daughter and she had requested a few...well quite a few...design changes.   So the ginger bread man became a tree... I will add a star later.


 

I didn't stick to the "plan" when making this, so already had the bottom section of hearts and stars joined to the end pieces.  
In fact I haven't stuck to the plan at all as I have the house block started as well.
Since we were going to visit eldest daughter & husband (who live in Townsville) for Christmas this year - and it is the first time she has been away from Brisbane for Christmas, I joined the blocks I did have and took it with me so that she could enjoy it.

There is a lot to go and I need to unpick those seams - I did use a long stitch - but I'm happy with how it's coming along.
Certainly a commitment to have it finished well before Christmas 2018.

Isn't that where Jenny Reynolds lives, too? What a beautiful Christmas quilt it is turning out to be. She's lucky she has such a talented mother! I know she enjoyed seeing it - and it's really mostly done! She'll have it for next year, definitely!
