    late Christmas quilt done

    I had these christmas print squares and put them into a quilt. started this last month before I lost my husband. I just got back to it. Keepsake quilting had a large snowman on the front of theirs but I think I will not add him after all. The backing has green scroll border and the front has red. I'm thinking of two fabric border if I have enough of the green.

    It's very pretty just the way it is. I hope you are doing fairly well and adjusting a little bit each day. Please take care of yourself.

    Oh. . . I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. Working on our quilts can be very therapeutic, can't it???
    Your quilt is GORGEOUS!!! I love the front AND the back!!! I also agree that the front doesn't really need the snowman. . . as far as I'm concerned, there's already too much snow in the world!!
    Take care of yourself!

    Sometimes very simple quilts come out looking quite grand. Enjoy it in about 334 days from now.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your husband. Please take care of yourself. I'm hoping that you're able to find some peace through your quilting. Your Christmas quilt is very pretty and I actually like it better without the snowman on the front. Take care!!

    I am also sorry to hear about your loss. I hope that quilting helps you, and the Christmas quilt is just beautiful. I agree that it doesn't need a snowman. It is just right as it is.

    I'm so sorry for your loss(my mother lost her hubby of 63 years, my father) and though I miss him terribly, she has been lost but after 6 months, she is feeling like maybe she can go on. So, hopefully life will improve for you and you can keep working on beautiful quilts!

    I am so sorry for your loss! I am glad you are back quilting during this time when you try to establish a "new normal"
    as my friend called it. You will be in my prayers!
