Christmas Quilt: Final Update! by Jean BrashearAT LAST!!!! The Christmas quilt is all done!! It only took me about 50 eons, but that’s on me because I had to lap quilt it and took my sweet time getting the work done. (And, yes, jumped into side projects all too often!) I probably should have quilted in the red sashing and might still, down the road, but I was ready to be done, so…here it is.Christmas Quilt: Final Update! by Jean Brashear

It’s special to me, though, because the center block is a Feathered Star made by one of my cherished quilting mentors who generously gave me many of her scraps and unfinished projects when she had to quit for health reasons. I still talk to her often, and she’s been cheering me on as I ambled my way to the finish line on this one.

It’s also special because the yo-yos came from my other quilting mentor, whom I miss dearly now that she has set up a quilting bee in heaven. I’m a fabric packrat (aren’t we all?!?) and especially adore vintage fabrics and pieces from those I cherish.

I decided to go ahead and hang it for awhile, even though it’s not Christmas, because it just makes me smile to see it.

    • They are! Thank you for appreciating that. I have another I made from various embroidered tea towels and dresser scarves that came from both my grandmothers, and I love curling up with it on a cold day and reading a good book.
