My quilt group has a Christmas party every year, and at each party we exchange gifts. We don't shop for an individual. We all have pretty much the same taste, so the gifts are wrapped and piled on a table. One at a time, we each get to chose one.

This year I got the gift Terri bought, and it was the pattern and fabric to make this little quilt designed by Primitive Gatherings. Aren't these colors terrific! I made it up in a couple of afternoons, and I finished the binding today. What a great piece for an otherwise dreary January.

Thanks, Terri!

What a nice gift and you did a great job finishing it so quickly. Thanks for sharing it. January is closing in hard and I welcome all bright colors and happy quilts to cheer it up.

Your quilt is lovely though I absolutely love the month of January as it is the only month I can rest from life and stay busy in the sewing room.

What fabrics are used here? They sure are bright and cheery!!

Love the colors in your quilt; yes, that was a fun gift! Natalie's story is precious! What a generous heart she has! Apparently, her grandmothers passed their generosity down! Wishing you a wonderful new year...
