Machine Quilting for Christmas

What a busy month!
On top of everything else going on this month, I did some machine quilting for a friend so she could finish up a quilt for Christmas. Such beautiful fabrics!
I quilted a holly leaf kind of pattern on the diagonal of the quilt and it will make the quilt nice and light for snuggling up in. I don't like dense quilting for a lap quilt since all that quilting makes the quilt feel too stiff.
For a change, I am not madly finishing up any quilts to give this year. I have been busy with the mystery quilt, my December UFO, and two wedding quilts that should have been finished in the summer and that I would like to finish up before 2014 arrives. That's unlikely! 
But I will enjoy every quilting moment that I can find over
the holidays, and I hope you do too. If you are visiting family and friends, take along your hand stitching and double your fun! 
My blog posting may be sporadic over the holidays, so I will wish all of you my wonderful blog readers a Merry Christmas!

That is a pretty quilt. I would like to see the holly design up close. I want to try that on a top or two.
I'm with you on the dense quilting for a lap quilt--not cuddleable! (I'm sure that is a word)
Merry Christmas, Kathy!
