    King sized quilt for Christmas!

    Gee, it seems like itís been forever since Iíve had time to be on the QB! This is my first post on the new format! Iíve been working on my DDís Christmas gift quilt. Little did I know it was going to take me almost 3 months to complete it! I did have some Ďissuesí with the quilt that took extra time to resolve but I am getting a little smoother with the Free Motion stuff. No so many thread turds this time! DD has 2 cats so I thought that would be an appropriate theme, but I really wanted a more sophisticated look than I was getting with the kitty fabric so I made it reversible. I drew the tree on the back of the quilt and just added borders to that so now she has a choice of which side to use!

    Brilliant. Those colours around each block are great and three is awesome.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.
