Remember this? My swaps!

About ten or more years ago members of the original HTS group swapped blocks in Christmas fabrics for a few months. I helped a friend finish hers as a present for her sister while mine languished in plastic bags in a drawer. I've been sewing with Helen Crane one afternoon a week, making gifts and latterly finishing UFOs. This is one result, a Christmas tablecloth for my elder daughter and family and now, hopefully, en route for Somerset.
May I wish all the members of Wayland Quilters all the best for Christmas and 2019. Happy sewing!
