Post Christmas / Holiday Cheer

I can't believe that we are already into 2016. Where has the time gone?!

I am pleased as punch that I have my first finish of 2016. 

It has been a fun journey from start to finish. This was a project started with my friend Wendy. We had been collecting red and white fabric to use in a quilt. It took us a while to decide what block we wanted to do and eventually settled on a Dresden Plate. 

This has been one of the easiest and most satisfying quilts to make. 

It truly went together relatively quickly and easily. Who doesn't love a Dresden Plate?

The blocks are a decent size so it makes for a good size quilt in no time.

These are a couple with my favourite centers. I decided to deviate a bit adding the aqua and black colour for a splash to both the centers and the corner block to break up the scrappy sashing.

This was a pretty good stash buster too - Bonus!!

Is this not the cutest and most adorable stocking?! I just got it in the mail from Jen over at Glinda Quilts. She has become a great blogger friend. Check out what she has accomplished.

I've had a glorious 10 1/2 days off work. I have enjoyed recharging, relaxing and having a great time with family over the Christmas break. Christmas day was one of the most fun that we've had for a long time. We laughed until it hurt. 

I trust that your 2016 is wonderful and blessed!
