{Post 1,565} Merry Christmas to All My Readers

I enjoy reading so many blogs. I like the depth of them as opposed to a one-sentence or caption on Facebook or Instagram. I am old-fashioned.

Here is the last update on my 2017 Christmas quilt, because I just took it out of the dryer and put it on the half wall in our living room. I guess in retrospect, the picture would have looked nicer if the mantle and Christmas tree lights were on, but I am happy with the way it looks.

I used up all the green print flannel I had for the back. The color perfectly complements the front. I quilted it with an original pattern I made up a few days ago. The top thread is white, and the back is a medium sage green. There wasn't quite enough of the backing, so I had to add a small row of shirt pieces from the front fabrics horizontally as well as an 8" wide red piece on one of the halves. It will fit a twin bed, and it might go there some time.

Here are a few other pictures. I'm off to cook and clean in preparation for our Christmas company.

Our living room rug (which can be seen at the bottom of the next picture, perfectly matches the quilt). I took this picture to show the quilting.

...that important label...
