Gifts for the 25th


On the 25th of each month our group encourages us to sew for Christmas. This way Christmas won't sneak up on you! So yesterday I got the borders finished on a quilt that will be a gift. AND this is also my oldest UFO - it was just blocks from a BOM that I didn't know what to do with. And then I heard one of my relatives would like a quilt , and they like these colors - so Bingo!!! Now I will need to get it quilted - but since I am a Machine Quilter I know it shouldn't be too hard to get an appointment with me - I just hope I have quick turn around Ha Ha!!



And I got the pieces cut out for half of the next gift quilt - not too bad if I do say so myself.

What a beautiful quilt! I'm always meaning to do the Christmas sewing on the 25th, but never quite get there. Good for you for doing it!

That's a really pretty quilt with loads of opportunity for some exquisite quilting. Your plan to sew for Christmas one day each month is brilliant!

The blue and Yellow quilt is so pretty. Bet it quilts up even better.

Love the photo of son and Weed Wacker. The best part, after seeing your youngun with the block, is because you are showing a REAL kitchen! 8-)
