    this is what I am working on as I find myself coming to the end of my first year of quilting. I love christmas and this is from fabric that I have had stashed for years, and I mean many, many, many years . I have to admit the bug has bit me pretty hard!

    Oh dasiy,
    This is really nice! Very very good job on it. I think I have some fabric like your old floral too, LOL! Although, I think I just bought some like it again. Everything old is new again. Do you believe it?

    I have always loved large florals, with deep rich colours...I must have loved this one cause I have at least 6 and half yards of it!! I guess I know what backing I am going to use!

    Daisy, this is much prettier than what you described in chat!
    I like the small red border around it, but not too keen on the other fabric.
    But you did a wonderful job!

    block A is a sawtooth star with pinwheel centre and block b is a simple pinwheel, both are set on point and the setting triangles are a christmas themed toille. My sister wrapped my christmas present in it last year. I only had a yard so I had to strategic in where I used it.

    beautiful, that quilting bug has quite the bite. I just finished two lap quilts and said I am not going to do anymore for awhile. Already thinking what am I going to do next!

    Thanks Daisyboo9!! I can't believe I didn't recognize that as I recently made a Dora the Explorer SawTooth for my granddaughter! lol!!!
    I would never have thought of adding a pinwheel center to it!

    And how neat of your sister to use fabric as wrapping paper!!
    :D

    I really like it and the color and design reminds me of peppermint! (like candy canes)

    I really like this quilt but wonder if you might pick a blue from your floral border/blocks instead of the "redwork". The reason I say this is that when you look at the center the blue pops out. Bringing it to the sides might balance it a bit better. Whatever you choose to do, the quilt will be gorgeous, have no fear!
