red things

this ever so cute book full of stitchable goodies arrived  this week 
 today we going to a Christmas party & I needed a small gift to take along

hey presto ( well 2 hrs later ) these little sheds appeared

I have one for myself & one to take along to the host.

there are a few more cut out to make as Christmas gifts as well 

this week my red triangle quilt was finally quilted & bound 

just in time for the festivities

I had collected lots of favourite polka dots & red & white prints to use in this quilt

inspired by this one 

off to be merry now

happy december

I'm loving those gorgeous little scandinavian houses....might have to drop a hint to Santa for that book!
And the red quilt is divine. I'm a sucker for red at any time but yours is just lovely. Well done!

Love the red quilt...simply lovely. Did you use linen with the red? I have made several projects from the Scandinavian stitches book...they are all so cute!

Thank you all for your sweet comments !!
Mary , I used a solid from the Rouenneries collection by French General .
I think it was called Roche & has a linen look but is a really fine cotton .
I saw that you had made the basket ... it is soo lovely & is on my list .
I am a bit daunted by the "nest "

Lorraine, I have been admiring your photostream on flickr - I love pretty much every single thing you've made and can't quite work out why I haven't noticed all your fabulous stuff before!

Hi, love this quilt!! Can you tell me how much of each fabric i would need to buy to do this? Want to make something similar in blues for my dads 80th birthday.
Thanks, Anneli
