Last quilt of the year?

Here is my latest completed quilt top:
The full mariner's compass block is 20" square. Amazingly, I won't be buying a single thing for this quit. All fabric, backing, batting and thread have been sourced from my stash! It's to be a wallhanging as a wedding gift for my parents' best friends, who are getting married in my parents' garden on January 4th. I'm hoping to have it completed before we head up to the holiday house on New Year's Eve - although I will of course be taking the machine and several projects with me!
Simon and I will leave James and Eleanor with his mother and come back to Adelaide on the 3rd for our friends' bucks/hens nights, and will stay for the wedding (different couple!) on the 4th. Simon's father is interstate sailing, and will be back on the 5th and will return to the holiday house with us. I'm hoping Eleanor copes 2 full days without me. I've just today received an invitation to a wedding ceremony on the 2nd, but don't want to stretch either Eleanor (James will be fine!) or my mother-in-law to a third day!
