Christmas Quilt

I started cutting up these fabrics for a quick Christmas Quilt. Have cut each print 4.5" wide by random widths to give a scrappy look, have started chain stitching them together with Cate's help.Patten is Chinese coins; semi based on this quilt pattern here.

Lap Quilt for Kylie

Another finish for 2010, a disappearing 9 patch lap quilt for Cate's dance teacher Kylie. Cate had her test 2 exam this morning, and next Tuesday is the Christmas Pagent and then were officially finished for the year. I love this pattern, with the bigger blocks I can whip one up in 2 weeks (sewing after work) or in a weekend if I stay off MSN chat with Emma.Fabric is Amy Butler Daisy Chain, I didn't have enough so added an aqua homespun and also used it on the binding which I think looks quite nice. It came back in stock last week so I picked up a few more metres. More of these to come in the New Year, I want to make 2 for the living room couches and some matching cushion, will add to my very long list!
