Done! Last quilt finish before Christmas…
This quilt will be delivered tomorrow to the recipient who has no idea it’s coming. And that’s what a surprise is supposed to be right? It’s going to a gentleman that I have known since 1979. He is a very special person in my life and this quilt is my gift to him. He is one of these kind and generous people that prefers to be anonymous so I don’t want to dishonour him by spilling the beans as to who it is. He has shown me so much kindness and generosity over the years of our association that I decided about 3 years ago that one day I would make him a quilt. Well, tomorrow my husband will deliver this to him while I’m at work. And I’m very excited that it’s done and that it’s for him. I sure hope he likes it.
I’m calling it Toscana because it reminds me of Italian ceramic tiles. Besides being a Christmas gift, it also qualifies as a finished UFO, bringing my total this year to 6!! That’s 6 fully finished quilts plus 3 (almost 4) quilt tops done. My goal was 12 for 2012 but I don’t think I’ll quite get there. But I’m very happy with what I did accomplish.
So, without further adieu, let me introduce you to TOSCANA:
Each block is a 4 patch kaleidoscope so, yes, they are all different.
It’s definitely time to tidy up the sewing room. And then bring on Christmas! I’m done and so happy.
