This little cutie got finished last night.
I do love that crinkly look after it's been through the washer and dryer.
This is before any quilting. I had these Winding Ways blocks done for a while. I had a specific place for them to go, but somehow the desire to work on them just left me. It turned out that the couple for whom I was making the quilts suffered major damage in Hurricane Harvey. They lost their home. If I had finished the quilts when I'd planned, the odds are good that they would have been lost, too. Isn't the Lord good to let me finish the first one now that the flood is over! I do still plan on making the other quilt, which will also be a Winding Ways for the wife, but this one goes to the husband. He needs one now.

Here it is getting quilted. I don't remember if I've ever shared the design I like to use. A lot, if you haven't noticed. For some reason it is really easy for me, and so I use it again and again. It is called Loopy Clams and is a freehand design by Lyn Durbin. Here is a link to your YouTube tutorial.

The weather here today has been dreary, so I did not even attempt to get any outside photos, but this is last night before it took a dive in the washer.

I hope all your preparations for Christmas are going well, and that you have lots of joy in store!

Chloe and all of us here at Muddle Manor would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Hugs and kisses,

It's a Beautiful Quilt, Elaine. Love the quilting. I'm guilty of using the same free motion meander on most of my quilts. I personally call it a free motion puzzle meander.
It's interesting how sometimes things don't work out only to work out later. Maybe there is no such thing as coincidences.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas, too.

How did I miss this post? I have enjoyed watching these blocks grow into a good collection and now I get to see the finished result. It looks amazing. You have worked your magic again. What a special gift for people who really need it. Well done!
