HoHoHo and a ho-hum quilt

Here is Nancy's cute, cute, cute Christmas table runner:

And my ho-hum quilt.   I made this years (like, 10 years!!!) ago and it is now finished!!

Have a great weekend!

Paula's Quilts

My niece, Paula, made this quilt -- her version of a Kim Diehl quilt.  So, so pretty!!

This is Mike's (Paula's husband) grandmother's DWR.  It was hand pieced and I did have a few issues and there are a couple (well, maybe more than a couple) of tiny pleats because of  the fullness.  But I think his grandmother will be very happy to see it quilted.

Love the back, too.  Hope Mike & Paula are pleased with it.
Now, I have this big bucket of scraps that I am going to turn into a string quilt.  Stay tuned to see how this pile is transformed.
Have a blessed day!

A Friday Finish!!

My version of Kim Diehl's Pie in the Sky is quilted.  Just need to get the binding sewn on.  I really, really like these fabrics.  I bought them at the last AQS in Knoxville, TN.

And my Roll, Roll Cotton Boll is pieced and ready to quilt.  I added the wide outer border because I am going to scallop the border once it is quilted.
Here is a picture of Roo doing his funky chicken dance!
