Months ago, a client of mine reserved time on my longarm schedule to quilt up a Christmas quilt she was getting ready to make. About a month later, she called to let me know she had finished the top and was disappointed with her choice of design. In her small living space, she only had room for one holiday quilt and she didn't like this one enough for it to make the grade. She then asked me if I wanted the top to finish it.
I bet you know what my answer was!
It was such a generous gift. I am sure a lot of time was spent making all those tiny pinwheels.
I was happy to discover I had the perfect backing piece already in my stash. And a solid red binding finished it nicely. My hurried photos don't show how bright and cheery this quilt is. My busy schedule this time of year makes it difficult to find time to take pictures. Between the rain showers and the gray, gloomy skies, these were the best photos I was able to get.
Sadly, the tiny scale of these pinwheels don't show off the cute prints very well.
But it is still a wonderful quilt none the less.
And now that it is finished, I am ready to pay my client's gift forward by donating it to a charity. I have two in mind but I still need to contact them. I am hoping this little quilt will bring a little cheer to someone who can use a hug during the holidays!
Gifting a quilt always makes me happy!
