Countdown to Christmas Quilt Complete

I finished another quilt this week.  This is one of only two kits I have ever purchased but I love the fabric.  Funny enough the other kit is a christmas quilt too.  I pieced this back in December and finally had a chance to quilt and bind it this month.  




I did very simple quilting on this one which is a first for me.  Overlapping peaks in the middle section, cute row of presents in the black boarder and free hand trees in the outer boarder.  


I also made myself a Girlfriend Wallet. 

I picked up a glass water bottle this week and wanted to make a sleeve for it just in case I drop it.  Don't want to spend hours picking glass up.  I have been keeping some of my little practice quilting pieces and they were perfect for constructing a sleeve to protect the bottle. Such an easy project.

Zodiac BOM - Gemini block

I completed the Gemini Block last week.  I am up to date so I am feeling really good about this quilt. 

The blocks look amazing together even with the one block having a placement issue.

Lucky Stars 2013 Quilt Complete

This one has been done for a few weeks but I keep forgetting to get pictures taken. I love how this turned out. I used double blend batting so this is a very heavy quilt. It measures approx. 67" square.


 It is hard to see the quilting in the main picture so here are some close ups. 




 I pieced the backing with left over fabric from front and even had enough left to be able to make scrappy binding.
