Yeah! One wish came true for 2013. The 'wish' was to finish this quilt before the year ended. This is the freebie pattern, "The Wish Quilt" offered by Red Brolly. It was done on December 27, 2013. :) The main reason this one languished in the UFO pile was all those checkerboard panels. Now to have it quilted and be ready for next Christmas.
Now, if you look closely, there are four stars with the family names on them. These are really little pockets where a small card is inserted with that person's Christmas wish. A cute idea, right? Of course, I had to have some wool felt in there, too. ;) Look at the reindeer...there it is!
