Default But Can I Wait That Long?

I just finished this tumbler last night. I named it "A Christmas Toast". Hand quilted, 54 x 50 inches. It's a surprise for my sister who has given me so much fabric over the years, even some in this little quilt. My only problem is, I do not know if I can keep it a secret until December.

That turned out very pretty. I'd have a hard time keeping it a secret.

That's very pretty. I say keep it a secret & put it away & wait for Christmas but don't forget where you put it!

Sometimes i treasure "just because" gifts more than "event" gifts.

Very pretty. You could always do a 'half' Christmas June 25. My granddaughter was born December 27, so she never was a celebration just for her due to the season. To compensate and give her a 'special' day all her own, they celebrate June 27, as her half birthday. To my surprise, I guess it is a common thing these days for chrildren born near major holidays.

Find yourself a designated box for nothing but Christmas gifts and put it in there. Make couple quilted pillows to go with it. Put other Christmas gifts in the box. If you put it in the back of a closet put an elf on the rack(elf on a shelf) to remind you it's there. On your November calendar put a reminder for it. that's what I do.

I agree with Cactus Stitchin. Or give it whenever.
