Merry Christmas

I hope that each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas.  Take some time with family and friends and enjoy the season.

Wednesday I managed to finish up the last of my Christmas sewing.  These little kitties are from Funky Friends Factory.  They are going to some special little girls.  The pattern is one of the more advanced patterns.

This was the pinning process to attach the pads to the bottom of the feet.  The pattern was great and I'm extremely pleased with the results.

The last block for the Moda Be My Neighbor quilt came out on Monday.  I searched for a line I hadn't used yet, and came up with Barcelona by Zen Chic.  I think it is about three years old, but it was perfect for the last block.

The first of two quilts is finished and out the door to it's new home.  It was very windy when I was trying to get a picture so this is the best I could do.

Enjoy the holidays everyone!!!!!

This weeks finish is "Kisses" from the book 12 - Pack Quilts.  Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister have come up with several quilts that are made from 12 fat quarters.  The day I took the picture of my quilt it was -20 C and the wind was blowing.  There was a funky shadow from my tree, and I just didn't care!  Way to cold to be playing around.

The Moda Be My Neighbor blocks are up to date.  The top one is made from True Blue by Zen Chic and Momma Said Sew II by Sweetwater.  The bottom on is Basic Mixologie by Studio M. Only one more block and then it's time to get this one together.

Gail brought her quilt from my Kaleido-Design class to Guild.  This is her own original design. Great work Gail!

Staying with the season, this is Joan's Christmas hanging that she had me quilt up for her.  The needle turn appliqué on this one is fabulous!

Manderley by Franny and Jane

This quilt has been finished for some time and has gone off to it's new owner.  I loved it so much that I have remade it but have not yet found time to quilt it.

I saw a version of this quilt here, and couldn't wait to try it out.  The fabric is Manderley by Franny and Jane for Moda.  It has wonderful motifs on it that are perfect for fussy cutting hexagons.  I have a bit of it left and I'm sure I'll be using it shortly.

A special someone will recognize this quilt.  Yes, it is finally quilted!  This was Lucy's first foray into EPP.  I know she is hooked now and has several other projects in the works.  Great quilt Lucy.

The Moda Be My Neighbor blocks are finally all caught up.  The top one is made with Sundrops by Corey Yodder and the second one is Kate Spain's Early Bird fabric just released at Fall Market.  Now if only I could get caught up on my Splendid Sampler blocks.  I'm sure I'm about 60 behind on them.  Oh well!
