    3 Completed Gifts, Wildlife Quilt and table decor

    Three made for Christmas. The wildlife quilt is for my son. No two panels were the same size, so a steel tape was a sewing tool on this one. The blue and gold are my son's high school (and fav college team) colors. The Tradewinds blocks because he travels for work. The USMC logo and his daughters' pictures had to go on the back. I ran out of space on the front.

    The table topper is for my GD and table runner is for my DIL. A Spicy Spiral and a made up pattern using scraps. I am making more Spicy Spirals. it was surprisingly easy, even with binding the edges and points instead of just turning the topper.

    As usual everything is pinker than real. I wonder if it's my camera or photo program. I even see a couple of pink Jello spots on the carpet from Thanksgiving. These were taken before the cleaning. Whoops!

    Lots of work there! Great double quilt ... it's sure to be a favorite. I especially like the spicy spiral .. it looks difficult, but is really beautiful. The sunflower table runner is a hit with me.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Lovely gifts. You did a great job and I can imagine they were well received. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Oh, oh. I just discovered that I had already posted the table runners in a previous thread. My apologies. The quilt hasn't been in Pictures before.

    good work. I particularly like how you used the attic windows to resize the panels.
