The 12 Inch Mini I Made!

This is the mini quilt I made for the 12 Inch Mini Quilt Club organised by Cheryll. My partner was Peg of Happy in Quilting. It has arrived at Peg's and I'm pleased to say that she loves it! (Phew!)
With the theme being Christmas, I had decided that I wanted to make a nativity quilt. This is my own design and I wanted to keep it simple. I had the border fabric in my stash. I thought it was so lovely that I didn't want to cut it up into smaller pieces. Sometimes less is more!
Here are a couple of Santa sacks I made up for the sister-in-law to send to her daughter and boyfriend over in England. She was going to make them herself and wanted some help. When she came she had her granddaughter (my great niece) with her. I think I got the easier job as there is a lot of running around keeping an 18 month old entertained!
