Christmas ... a little late!

A week after Christmas we spent the weekend with Mr. T's sister's family at two cabins at Lake D'Arbonne in northern Louisiana.  The cabins were spacious, with each having beds for 8, plenty of room for the 16 of us.  The weather was beautiful, firewood plenty, and the company great.  We shared cooking duties between the two kitchens, including a big holiday dinner.

We each had  to provide a Christmas gift for 2 other people.  My quilter niece and I had each other, so we bought each other fat quarter bundles and other quilty goodies.  Mr. T had his sister, my sis-in-law.  I had already started a quilt for her before we knew we were getting names, so I made it for him to give her.

I used charm packs of Ambrosia by Kathy Davis for Free Spirit.  At first I used only the charm packs in the squares, but it was WAY too busy, even for me.  So I unsewed several blocks and added in some solids to break up the busyness.  I was happy with the result and my SIL loved it.
