My Other Christmas Quilt Finish: Scrappy Strippy Christmas Coin Quilt

So, I'm happy to report that I am able to sew quilt binding on by flashlight.  When our power was out over Christmas, that was how I entertained myself some of the time ... and I got this quilt all done. 
I pretty much always quilt with vibrant colours, but I realised I don't often use a lot of red.  I think that is what I really like about this quilt -- all the Christmasy red!
Here it is a little closer.  Also, if you notice a cloudy area floating over part of the quilt (left side) that is because two certain small someones got a smudge on my camera lens that I didn't notice until after all these pictures were taken.  (Notice said small someones in the background in this picture).  I know it was them as when I went to download my pics this morning there were 289 pictures.  I had taken maybe 45 of them.  Let's just say there were lots of close-up photos of nostrils and household objects.
Another close shot complete with smudge.
And finally, this caused big excitement at our house.  I made the kids some waffle sticks and a bubble cooked into a heart.  :-)
Hope you have a great week!  Posted by Riel Nason

Isn't it fun when love pops up so unexpectedly...even from the waffles.
