Tula 54/55: Advent is here

So the Tula Chapter is done!!! The last two blocks are:

Block 54: Sunny side up
Block 55: Bourballs
And I also managed to finish Mr.C. Advent Calendar in time, but the weather doesn't really allow for nice pics:

The sachets are off centre in the squares and so I decided to organically echo quilt them. I love the effect and are amazed at what a difference the quilting makes to the whole feel of the quilt (compared by his brothers one that I stippled last year).

Organic echoing of the pockets
Backing Mr.C.'s advent calendar
Mr. K.'s stippled advent calendar
I am pleased with the outcome and so is Mr.C. who was very pleased to empty the first pocket this morning. That's one more of the FAL Q4 list, yeah!

I am linking to Aylin and Susannes Monday makers and Lynnes Small blog meet and Fresh sewing day.

Till next time,

  4. Love your advent calendar
    I'm nearly ashamed to say: I bought one
    But I love it: numbered baggies on a rope
