It measures 49 in X 68 in. And this is a two-layered patchwork without padding in between.

The Making:


It starts with just four strips of cloth of Christmas colours.


Cut, cut, cut (as accurately as possible).

Rearrange, sew again, cut again and voila...


You get these wonderful diagonal designs!


Then, you put in the sash, supervised by a rep from the PatioCat Co.

The dark green cloth is contributed by Agnes Cheong. The rest is ours.
The red floral and polka dot date back decades in mum's stash.


And mum did the top-stitching, alternating between red and green thread, and then, she sewed the backing.


And here you are, folks!


 Feeling generous?

We (and the animals) hope so!

It's the Christmas spirit, folks!

Happy Bidding!!
