In the holidays.....

This is Louis
When I started quilting, Louis was one of the first to put his hand up for one. And then he happily browsed through books and magazines to find the one he wanted most (of course he changed his mind at least once a week after I started cutting and sewing).

In the holidays I finally finished his quilt (it's taken about a year) and he is very, very happy with it.
It's hard to see it, especially as Louis decided to photograph it himself (Emily took the bottom photograph) but I think you can get the general gist.
I have also finished the top to Julian's quilt which I will attempt to finish in the summer holidays. And, I started quilting Emily's quilt that she started 20 months ago. So - I did get a bit of crafting done in the holidays, not as much as I would have liked, but a bit ;-)

cheers
