Christmas Present Swap

For a number of years Maureen and I have made a cushion for each other for Christmas, but this year we had a change of plan and each made mini quilts.  We each have the same quilt stand so that made it easy to work out the size.
When I saw this Anni Down's design I knew that was the stitchery to use and I teamed it with this gorgeous Tilda print in blues greens and pinky purples.  It wasn't too hard to find some threads, some variegated, some plain.



Maureen made this lovely one for me - bright & cheery!


We will continue on with the mini quilts for a while now I think.

  10. Thanks everyone. We both get pretty excited before hand over and even when we swapped cushions they always differed but at the same time we made to suit each others taste.
    2018 has a theme. Red and green Christmas. As I have never crossed the line to blogland you will see the big reveal in 2019. Yay!
