    Christmas Finishes

    I finished up my Christmas gift quilts last weekend. I finally had a chance to take pictures to share.

    The first one I finished is the smallest and the first time I've tried FMQ on anything larger than a practice piece:

    The second is my favorite of the set. Mostly because I like the colors the most:

    The 3rd was made with the Layer Cake Pop pattern.

    The last one I just winged. I wanted to make 9 patches, so I just started cutting an sewing. I goofed and some of the same blocks are next to each other, but I wasn't bothered enough to take anything apart. I also ran out of the grey I started with, so I snuck in a second gray that is slightly different:

    Thanks for looking I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas crafts too!

    wonderful finishes
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
