partridge in a pear tree

hello! Just popping in quickly to show you the last of the dolly quilt mailouts for the year. Must admit that I haven't had a chance to start the last couple but I couldn't resist this one.....being a Christmas theme and all! School holidays have started and pre-school is in it's last days. Plans have been made for the holiday break and Christmas shopping is all done (phew)!

The pear tree was made using an 18 degree circle segment ruler - a new favourite toy. Very quick and easy and the partridge and pears were appliqu├ęd on.

I always enjoy sewing on the binding, it's my favourite part of making a quilt! Below are some spare change squares which arrived this week - beautiful fabrics, I think I will jumble them together and make a quilt with them as they are.

Time now for catching up with family and friends, a wedding, some sewing (hopefully) and counting down the days until Christmas!
