    Red face yea! finished my Christmas quilt today!!!-well still have to bind it-but

    i did the embroideries on this quilt 3 years ago---finally got it out a month ago and decided i really wanted to get it together this year...and i managed to do it! finished quilting it about noon today *Christmas Eve* nothing like 'down to the wire'
    still have to bind it but that's ok---we celebrate at my moms every year on New Years Day---i think i will give it to her
    we shall see- anyway---so excited to finish another UFO---and one of the Christmas ones! now i only have one Christmas UFO quilt-it's 10 years old---but out- in site---maybe just maybe i will finish it up in 2012!
    anyhow---
    one more done!

    Yea! Merry Christmas everyone!

    Blue and white and beautiful
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Very beautiful! Great job! At least you can enjoy it. Same thing happened to me when I finished a holiday quilt a few years ago. Got it done, but no time to do the binding. Put it on the bed anyway. Did the binding after New Years.

    it's not the thread that's sparkling---its the fabrics! some of the fabrics are (kind of ) glittery---without the glitter---some are fairy frosts- some are metalics---most of them are some way or other sparkly-
    i simply quilted it with Aurafil white on the top- a light blue cotton on the bottom....the fabrics did the real work

    so---just how many quilts *should we* keep for ourselves? i tend to give most of them away- sell one once in a while---took me 5 years to finally break down and make one for my bed-now i have 3---thinking i (should) keep the Christmas quilt---but i could give it to my mom- or my mil- or my daughter's mil---all 3 are great grandmothers---who would love it---
    decisions,decisions...so===how many quilts you've made have you kept---and do you (rotate) them-or what? my linen closets are kind of full- i make large quilts- hanging them on the walls is really not a viable option---if i keep it-no one will really see it---
    what should i do???
    (i know- everyone should have such tough decisions...) i need ot have a plan- so i will finish it---if it has no (purpose) it may sit without a binding for 3 or 4 more years
    guess i should just get off the computer & go make a binding! no excuses---figure it out later (after some of you have figured out an answer for me )
    I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

    Beautiful, I love it as it. It will be a wonderful gift to yourself when it is finished.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    I really like it and I am not particularly a blue person. It is a beautiful quilt for someone to enjoy.
