I have started on the quilting of the red/cream Opposites Attract, but I haven't got very far yet, so I'll leave details of that for another day :)

Pajama Quilter's design Wonky Feathers as an all-over design on this quilt. It was good to get back into the rhythm of machine quilting after a few months' break.
Finding a binding fabric in my stash to co-ordinate was a challenge, nothing seemed to look right. Eventually I found a FQ of this stripe and it seems to do the trick. This is the first quilt I have finished in my new sewing room.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all :)

Opposites Attract quilt - the house move has meant I haven't quilted anything for six months :)

A clever idea gleaned from the internet ... see the reindeer face biscuits, they are gingerbread men/snowmen used upside down :)

Now to an update on my quilty progress ... the blocks are all sewn and the columns assembled. I need to sew them into two large 'chunks' so I can baste and quilt them. I haven't decided on the quilting design yet, but it will have to be something that will allow me to quilt this in two sections which are joined later as I can't cope with machine quilting something this big in one go.
I'm linking up to Field Trips in Fiber's Cross the Drunkard's Path Quilt-a-long. The blocks were made using the Eliza's Back Porch DP templates, following the methods taught by Ann Petersen on her Craftsy course, inspired by Jaybird Quilts' pattern Opposites Attract (which uses applique rather than piecing).
