This weekend I took down the Christmas decorations and packed them away. This is always a sad time. I love Christmas and enjoy the decorations in the house. It is always a little bit of a downer when those things have to be put away.
This year, I was able to continue the feeling of Christmas beyond packing away the decorations by working on my my Christmas Gratitude quilt. My quilt is now finished to the flimsy stage. My version is different from Judy L.'s version in that I have left off the last two borders. I ran out of the red and green fabric so this quilt is slightly smaller than Judy's version. At 60" x 73" this quilt is plenty big enough for a lap quilt--even without the last two borders.
