The idea was to make a 8" x 13" crazy quilt block and wrap it around a 7" paper towel roll and fill the roll with little crazy quilting goodies and fabric. We all had to put our names on a list and write our likes and dislikes down as well. We were given a name and we had to keep the recipient' name secret so it would be a surprise when they opened them at Christmas.
People have been posting pictures of their finished crackers and they all look wonderful.
Here is a photo of my finished Christmas Cracker.

I put some fish in the centre and tried to make the stitches look undersea and watery.
You can see that I added some more fish and a sea horse, squid and some shells.
I filled it with some silk fabric, lace, thread and beads etc.
It's amazing how much you can fit in a 7" paper towel roll.
We are posting them off this week. I wonder what my Christmas Cracker will look like?
Bye for now,
