Another year of crafting! Here are my final two projects: machine embroidered robin cards for my sewing group and no-sew patchwork Christmas trees with a group of friends. A lovely end to the year.
Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a creative New Year!

Looking rather pale in the Northern winter sunshine, this is a quilt that I've just completed for my daughter. She wanted blue but it had to fit with other soft furnishings in her room and so we arrived at a compromise of this blue/green.
I based the design on a doodle. Large flowers with loose curly tendrils have been appliqued onto a background and then top-stitched to give the effect of illustration. The border is strip pieced in a random fashion.
Slightly too late for her first term at Uni but I'm hoping it will be a nice surprise when she comes home today.
