Quilt finish and swap pressies.

I've finally finished my "Jelly roll race" quilt and I'm very pleased with it, the colours are a bit out of the norm for me but I do like it for a change.
Ooooo I guess thats an OPAM too.


I ditch stitched the main part and on the border I made squares, you can't see it very well in this piccie as I used a matching thread. I was going to stipple the main area but seeing I'm the world's worst stippler went back to ditching.

My advent swap partner "Gai" ( no blog) has sent all these goodies and I can't wait for the 1st Dec to start opening the parcels.... well 1 each day should I say..... I will be good, I will be good.
Thanks Fee for organising this great swap.
