Finished Friday

I actually finished these items at the very last minute!!

We had Christmas with my inlaws on the 24th. We also had a special guest here, I will call him my 4th son. So while the 4 boys were playing wii and wrestling I finished the binding on this quilt.

That is how it always works right? I bound it in the teal


And the great news is - my Mother in Law loved it!! yay!!  

They are true cowboys - so we have the sedona desert colors on the front, and saguro cactus's ( Cacti??) and cowboys!!


We came home from there and after playing Texas Hold em with the boys... I cleaned them out! I finished binding this one... a Tshirt quilt for my dad. 

These are T shirts from the Departments that were involved in the Twin Towers on 9/11

and the back....                                      
He liked it!!

I have enjoyed following the finished fridays at crazymomquilts.blogspot.com and http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/  It has inspired me to finish a few things, and not wait till the next year .....

Beautiful, beautiful! Love that SW look. The backing and your quilting make a lovely combination! The second quilt is so heart grabbing. They will be treasured for a long, long time!

That's a beautiful SW quilt! Did you use a pattern or is it your own design?
