    busy, busy getting things done! i've accomplished a few--more coming

    so, i've been trying to 'wrap up' my holiday sewing- i managed to get 5 donation quilts done- the first 3 are 'Downy quilts for kids' quilts- the next 2 are for the Women's resource center
    then the quilts i'm giving as gifts---been finishing up UFO's too---feeling pretty...motivated!

    WOW!!! you really have been busy. I too have been finishing up "ufo's" that are have been hanging aroundish. Three of them have already headed to their new homes. one I am currently working on hand sewing the binding. have a small section left to finish and have two fabric cubes that I am working on one is done and the other needs more stuffing to be finished. Then there is my DD's quilt that needs about 16" of boarders and patterns to finish the top. I am happy for you. it is always exciting to finish a quilt and send it to its new home. kinda makes me wonder if that is just a little bit of how God feels when a baby is born.

    Wow. Got any stash left to cuddle up in??? It's like a solo quilt show!
    That's a lot of recent quilting!I'm averaging less than a quilt a month here in what will undoubtedly be referred to within my family as Year One of the Addiction.
    I love the scrappy quilts and the b/w/r (should we call these Newspaper Quilts?) but the blue ring quilt is so lovely and delicate in the choice of colors/prints. And it looks like you quilted big flowers with layers of petals.
    Congratulations and thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

    How wonderful! Mercy, you are prolific! I like all of them, but my favorite of the bunch is the second-to-last. It looks like a traditional quilt "with a twist," and I always like that type of pattern.

    Very nice, all of them! You should be feeling quite accomplished!
