I finished one and one half quilts this week.
The first: a baby quilt for a friend's great-grand-niece ... I used three fabrics - a panel, a floral and a sky. I backed and bound it with the sky fabric, and free motion quilted it on my Bernina.

line titled Garden Gathering.
And the second is for my neighbor who moved to Maine this year, and shortly after arriving, lost power and heat in an ice storm ... I promised her a warm lap quilt, and want to get it to her before winter ends! The top is finished, but it still needs backing, batting, quilting and binding ... and a label! This is a 3-yard quilt in book called Easy Peasy, available in Quilters' Quarters at a discount.

This one features our local birds, with
blue snowflakes and light green fern puffs.
|Cardnals, Chicadees, Sparrows and more...|
New year, new quilts, and some continued goals ... The emergency comfort quilts will continue, as will the veteran's appreciation quilts. But I've started the new year with a new style ... the 'stained glass' look, using a black on black sashing and batik blocks.
|Of course, Pretty Kitty will judge block placement.|
