The final quilt of 2010

As the year winds to a close, I was able to finish one last quilt. Last night, I mentioned to my dh that I just finished the last quilt of 2010, and his comment was, "are you sure?" - implying that I might get another one done before the year was over. Such a funny guy! :)
This is a little rag baby quilt for a co-worker. Her baby girl is due at the end of January. The squares are 5". I didn't actually measure it now, but it is 9 squares across, by 12 squares up and down.
I've been trying to total up the number of quilts I made this year. I don't have an exact count for sure, but I think I made 5 "big" quilts (bed sized) and 14 baby quilts. I also made 18 table runners. There were a few smaller projects too, like notebook covers, hot pads, aprons, burp cloths and bibs....
We'll see if I can keep up this pace in 2011. I'm sure gonna try!
Happy New Year everyone!

Merry Christmas!

Here's Charlie, with his new Christmas toy, wearing his elf hat, and too tired to care..... this pretty much sums up how I'm feeling right now! I hope everyone had a great day!

The Last Two......

Ok, so I know you are probably tired of seeing Christmas table runners. I promise these are the last of the bunch. They were shipped off to Colorado yesterday. I have one more project I would like to get done before Christmas. We'll see......... :)

Snowed In and working on projects

We had a blizzard over the weekend, so it was a good time to stay in and get some projects done. This is a baby quilt I finished for a co-worker. Her baby is due on Christmas Eve, and she doesn't know what she is having. I will take it to work with me tomorrow, and give it to her. The backing is yellow gingham check. Nothing fancy. I am happy with the way it turned out. It measures about 38 inches wide by 50 inches long.

On my "team" at work, 5 out of 26 women are pregnant. 3 of the 5 know the sex of their babies - 2 girls and one boy. The other 2 have opted not to find out.

The tablerunners shown below were shipped off earlier in the week to 2 of my sisters-in-law. Both of them have December birthday's. I have 2 more quilted, and they just need the binding hand sewn.

Ok, I know it's been awhile......

Here's what I've been working on.......table toppers and table runners. Top topper (how funny is that?) is about 19 inches square. It's on it's way to my niece in Alaska. Next one went to a co-worker. It's just under 15 inches square. 3rd down is for my daughter-in-law's mother. I gave one almost identical to it to my daughter-in-law. And the bottom one went to a friend for her birthday. Gonna go had sew a binding onto another right now - a disappearing 9 patch. I promise to post a picture when it's finished........
