I'm sorry I'm late with Christmas greetings but I hope you've had a wonderful Chistmas.
December is always quite hectic at work (and catching a bad cold doesn't help) so this was one of the reasons for my absence.The second one was much more pleasant - a secret Christmas project.
It was a close call but I managed to finish it just in time to put it under the Chistmas tree.
So let me show you my sister's Christmas quilt:

Actually the secret part was the timing - my sister expected this quilt in May or June. Seeing her joy when she received it now was one of the best Christmas presents I got.
As you can see my sister is a great fan of French General and the choice of fabric is mainly hers, I just helped to narrow it down a bit. She also took an active part in choosing the design, sending me links to quilts she liked and approving (or discarding) the layouts - it was fun. In the end it came out quite similar to these twin quilts by Bec of Chasing Cottons although the only part of the quilt I intentionally applied to my design was the pieced border.
