Tis the day after Christmas and all through the house..



I'm checking out quilt patterns, ufo's and stash......
We had a very nice Christmas here, two of our three sons were home to celebrate with us. My DIL is a gem, she made sure that I had quilty things under the tree and then perused my quilt books indicating which patterns and colors she likes. She knows that I hope to make quilts for each of them within the next year or so and was putting in her order early! Two photos to share today- a family photo sans DS2 who wasn't with us and DH who was the photographer. The other of my Jo Morton club Little Strippy quilt, this months class quilt. I was able to get all my Christmas preparations done a little early and my gift to myself was to spend Christmas Eve day working on some of the projects I had put off for a while.

What a nice family you have. And isn't it wonderful to have a daughter -in-law that is a keeper.

What a great looking family you have. The little in front is adorable.

Your DIL is a keeper. What quilt did she order?

Nice looking family!

Is the Jo Morton quilt one for you or destined for one of the people in the photo? In those colors, it could be a girl quilt OR a guy type quilt. :)

Great family photo - too bad there's no tripod and delay button so DH can jump in, too. Nice to have such a great DIL, too!

I love the strippy quilt. Your Christmas Eve sounds like the perfect one.

Hi, Gail! Your Jo Morton is beautiful and what a nice family photo. Unusual for a family member to understand how perfect quilty gifts would be for a quilter, you are a lucky one :-). Happy New Year! Karen
