This quilt was a stack and slash I did at the end of 2006 so it's been a UFO for some time. Last month it became my first quilt on the frame and after some trials the quilting was completed. Monday I machined the binding and Tuesday night finished hand stitching the binding on the back and ta da! "Citrus Splash" is a UFO no more.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very happy Christmas.

Christmas Scrappy Block Swap I took part in in August 2009! I know that was a looooong time ago... My blocks have been patiently waiting to be used since then. I only got them out about a week or two ago and decided that this was the year I was going to get them into a quilt, they were not going to wait yet another year until next Christmas.

The unique thing about this quilt is that it is double batted because I am donating it to a homeless person in our area as the temperatures are dropping and I can't stand the th0ught that someone is cold.
Another one is waiting, so need to run, finishing quilts is so much fun!

Here are some other finishes that I think I've forgotten to put on:
I'll have to look through and see what else I've forgotten to put on here.

So, its #10 finish for me.
It's been months since I've posted on here. After being out of work for two years and three months, I started a job the end of April and I'm finally getting into a new routine.
So when I joined this blog, I posted that one of my goals was to complete a crow wall hanging from the pattern I purchased two years ago at a national quilt show in Williamsburg, VA. Now that the temperatures around here are more reasonable (even chilly today) I'm in the nesting frame of mind and want to make pretty things again.
So here is my wall hanging. I still haven't sewn the casing on the back so it's temporarly hung with tiny straight pins (hence the slight sagging).
The pattern had straight quilting on theirs but since I love leaves so much and my fabric had leaves in it, I decided to quilt it with falling leaves.
Sewing all the beads on took quite a bit of time, but I did it while watching my favorite BritComs on Saturday nights.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I'm not sure if I'll complete my fall bird quilt, but sure will try. I've already started making Christmas gifts (actually completed and delivered one already).

It is a bit Wonky and that is why I love this so much! All the fabrics represent winter season or Christmas.
I love the rich colors in the backing fabric I picked out and as you can see, I did some basic quilting on this one, machine stitching straight across from top to bottom.
