Still Sunday ...(159)

It's still Sunday morning, and I haven't done any sewing yet. But I have taken most of our Christmas decorations down. It's traditional in the UK to leave them up until Twelfth Night (6th January, Epiphany Eve) but unlucky to leave them up after that. As I have the cleaners coming tomorrow I wanted to get most down, but have left the Christmas wreath up on the door until Tuesday.

Having taken down my Christmas quilt it looked really bare. So, whilst I decide what I want to put up there, I've hung my recently finished Home is Where the Heart is quilt. It looks a bit wonky, but I'm hoping that it's just because it's been folded up and needs to hang out for a while!

It's my first attempt at free piecing and wonky letters, and I'm pretty pleased with it.

Have you named your town on the quilt? If there were children arouond you could point out each house and pretend so-and-so lived there...what a story you could weave.

Love the quilt...looks hard - was it?

I still love that quilt every time I see it. So happy and free! I sounds like everyone is up to the same thing today, taking down Christmas. Not nearly as much fun as putting it up.

We'll be taking our tree down sometime today too, end of the weekend project. What a happy quilt, and your letters look just great! I would really like to try a quilt with letters in it. Tonya, from whence the idea seems to have aprung, certainly has plenty of good ideas.

Very nice replacement. Looks almost spring like. I'm still slowly making progress on the quiltville mystery quilt. Back to sewing square in a square units.

What a pretty quilt. I have the same phrase in my Wonky quilt but I don't know when I'll ever get that done to show. Good for you!

Mine are sort of half down...so I will still be doing them on the 6th..I had to clear the table of all the new ones I bought as we are sewing tomorrow night and I sew in here and my friend on my table.........and there was no room.
Also thought it good to get the tree down Thurs night as the floor was vacuumed on Friday. So that was the head start.
Have fun

Love your pieced quilt. You used very nice colors.
Isn't it nice to have the house cleaned up again, after Christmas. All a sudden there is so much space and light again!

Oh, I do like those wonky letters! What a cheerful quilt!
