A CHRISTMAS PRESENT AND A NEW SMALL QUILT

Another header picture change.  I finished the small quilt yesterday evening.
The pattern I used is called "Comfort and Joy" and is by Cheri Saffiote-Payne.  It went together quickly and I think it will make a nice holiday quilt.

I received a package from Mary of "Quilt Hollow" yesterday.  A surprise gift for the holiday season.
I am delighted with the little quilt.  It has vintage look fabrics and my style!  I think it is something that I can display year round and I plan on doing that.  I plan on putting it on an end table by the sofa in the family room.    Mary did a really nice quilting design on the quilt.  She is the so good at picking an appropriate machine quilting design and executing it on her quilts.  I am so thankful to have her as such a good friend even though we have never met in person.  Mary enclosed a cute, cute snowman card which I forgot to take a picture of.  And two packages I can't open until January.

I hope you have a wonderful day.  I plan on doing some sewing.  So much to choose from but you can bet it will be something with a holiday theme.

I love both quilts you've shown us today. Of all the quilts I've made, not one of them is a Christmas quilt so you know what has been added to my 'to do' list for next year.

Mary's little minis are always gorgeous and soooo well done. Enjoy them both, my friend.
