Nigel's sister has a boy and two girls who we always buy for each Christmas
This year with only me earning and a general belt-tightening operation in place I decided that using up what I had in my stash already to make them each a quilt would keep me busy, taking my mind off the various issues that have troubled our family this year, and make cost-neutral gifts for them
For utility type quilts I generally revert to a large meander pattern for the quilting - quick, simple and does the job
Their mum told Nigel this morning that they all loved their quilts when their grandparents delivered them for us yesterday
Everybody happy - result!
