I have spent time this month putting together blocks to make quilt tops so I can start the year with a clear conscience to start something new. I have done two tops and have made good progress on a third.
 I made stockings for my family.
 I quilted this for Dorothy, the fabrics I think are from her stash of  30's reproductions, some are really cute. I really liked the backing fabric too, lovely and soft.
 This is our gift to Miss Chaos and her boyfriend. I was asked for something purple and she had been mad keen on the most revolting bright greens as a youngster so this is a rather more sophisticated colour pairing in my opinion. If you like the design I think it will be a quilt long in the new year. I have acted as a pattern tester for Lynne at Lilly quilts and will let you know when I hear more.
Unfortunately Mr Chaos has shared his cold with me so I am not expecting to be terribly productive over the next few days but I do have 14 pairs of trousers to make for Pantomime which opens on the 10th January at Rugby Theatre so they will have to take priority.
Hoping everyone has a great New Year

Hope you are feeling better soon! We've been plagued with colds this holiday too...must be going around!

Love the green and purple quilt...the colours are so unusual, but work really well together!

I think you are amazing to finish things before starting new projects - please let me into your secret! Sorry to hear you've been under the weather - can't you contract out the trousers?
