My goal this week was to finish piecing this Fair Isle Quilt which is a pattern by Freshly Pieced. I fell in love with this patterns Scandinavian theme when I first saw it. I did change the pattern a bit and turned the top row of red poinsettias into blue snowflakes. I'm happy I added the blue. I also pieced the reindeer differently than in the pattern. They are suppose to be made with all 1 inch squares but I changed that and used longer strips where I could to save some piecing time.
I'm hoping to quilt this one soon, just need to find a backing. Think a simple swirly panto will be the way to quilt it as it will be for on our couch in the winter.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours! I took family pictures like these a few years ago and am very happy I got the opportunity to do it again this year when the sun was shining and everyone was home! I'm now officially the shortest one in the house.
