We are just back from a quick trip to the mountains to see family. I finished the binding on three quilts during the trip! here is the first. It is called Four Patch Surprise. Lots of random four patches on the front.
Then a strippy quilt of the extra four patches for the back. It is quilted with a meander in the background space and a winding snake maze alternating in the four patches. Kurt was kind enough to hold it up in front of the Christmas tree.
While things were calm this morning, I finished loading another quilt onto the frame. This is the second set of postage stamp stars. I had quite a nice stash of these from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
We celebrated my nephew's 21st birthday while we were in the mountains. His sister made him a bucket list of 21 tasks to complete for the day. He didn't quite get them all done, but he did check off quite a few before the end of his birthday. Most of them had to do with drinking or dancing and he was a good sport about it all.
On the way home, we stopped to take Sydney skiing. She has been asking since the last time we went and she had so much fun.
Nobody else wanted to ski, and so I took the others back down to the bottom of the mountain to go tubing instead. The drive home from that was just over 9 hours, so it was a long day, to say the least.
As far as celebrating Christmas, we got home so late last night and were too tired to get everything ready. We are calling today Christmas Eve and waiting to celebrate for when everyone is more recovered tomorrow.
Merry Christmas to everyone else though, celebrating on the actual day. I hope that you all had quality time with family and friends with plenty of quilts to keep you all warm and cozy.
