Christmas Finishes

Most of these quilts were pieced during my time in Florida when I was house/pet sitting for my daughter while she was deployed to Afghanistan.  I was finally home long enough to quilt and bind them!

This quilt is for our niece and her husband.

This quilt is for their son, born in June and quilted with smiling suns.

This quilt is for the new grandparents, my SIL and BIL.  I had fun coming up with different quilting for this quilt.

This quilt is for the new Auntie and niece.  Same panel was used for the center but all different quilting patterns were used.

 This quilt is for my youngest daughter.  Didn't take close-ups of the quilting before I sent it off to Tulsa.
There was one more for the best girlfriend a SS could have, but they were coming over and I didn't get pictures before I wrapped it up!  I'll get pictures tomorrow.

I hope that all of you have a Blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year, both filled with family, friends, love and laughter.  And I hope you have more finishes and fewer UFOs this time next year!

I received a squishy from Canada

There was a blog hop...I don't remember which one because they all keep sucking me in...and this time, I was a winner!!!  Annette, who blogs at http://institchesandseams.blogspot.com/ picked my name and today I received a squishy from Canada!!!  Annette designs her own patterns - amazing! - and sent me one called Crazy for Candles and 3 fat quarters to make it with!  
It is an adorable star pattern that will let me play with the embroidery stitches on my sewing machine!  Thank you, Annette!!!  Make sure you go over and check out her blog and you'll know why I'm a follower of hers!

I hope to have all my Christmas gift quilts done-done this weekend - they need bindings and labels - and when they are ready for viewing, I'll post pictures of them here!

New Customer quilt finished!

I finished this beauty last week and sent it off to Joan.  She has it now, so I can post pictures of it here.  She has promised me a picture of the whole quilt...it is 102" square and there was no where to put it to see it all, so here is a picture of a little more than half of it!  I got to play with trapunto and McTavishing on this beauty!
