A Lap Quilt Finish

Sorry to have not posted for a while - work got very busy in the run up to Christmas (exams to mark, reports to write, Christmas dinner for the kids to organise). However, even though work reduced my blogging, I still kept crafting!

My Hallowe'en themed lap quilt was finished with a week or so to spare before Christmas. I am really chuffed with how it worked out. I decided to go away from my usual quilting technique of stitch-in-the-ditch and did quilt lines either side of the sewn lines. The only issue was, there were a heck of a lot of ends to tuck in afterwards! It drove me slightly bonkers!!

Sister-in-law seems pleased with it, and it still successfully glows. All is good!

Oh, I know all about the last days of school before the holidays start - lots and lots to do to get everything done. But now you can relax.
This Halloween quilt is just awesome, great job!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy New Year!
