Merry Christmas

196327_1040844072942_2836_nIn 2009, I made wall hangings for each of my daughters, my daughters in law and one granddaughter.  They all came for Christmas that year except for one daughter who lived in Virginia at that time.

The daughter in Virginia was sent a wall hanging, but her original wall hanging had a mishap.  I was quilting the last block when I noticed that the block was pieced sideways.  I put the wall hanging aside and made another one for her.

I retrieved the  put away quilt from the attic and used it to make the hippopotamus.  My daughter got what she wanted for Christmas that year.

Have a great day and happy quilting.

Merry Christmas
