    Well Loved Christmas Gift

    As much as I like the soft backing, it's likely to be the first and last microfibre blanket I ever use for a quilt... Quilting it was a bit of a pain, and I usually don't have all those troubles with thread tension I had with this quilt! But it was well worth the hassles, my goddaughter was absolutely thrilled with her Christmas gift! And yes, there are elephants on it, her favourite animals!

    Cut quilt. Did you use Warm Wishes pattern? She looks like she was happy to receive this lovely quilt.

    Yes, it's Warm Wishes. Found the pattern online and love it! It's easy and quite fast to piece but still looks somewhat "sophisticated". I'm sure going to do that one again!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Great quilt - and good of her to pose for you - my grandkids are allergic to being photographed lately.

    nice quilt, she looks like she really loves it too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
