Default Christmas gifts done!!

Our youngest son and family moved to Madison this year where the Badgers play. They are such fans so when I saw this fabric had to make them a throw to take to the games.
Made 22 of these ornaments, so addicting plus my list kept getting longer when it started out with 3 for the DDIL's and a few for myself lol.image.jpg

A friend, Deb, from our guild was gracious to do a lot of the quilting on this throw. She did an amazing job and helped relieve some stress! Quilters are so caring and generous with their time.

I made two of the ornaments and my fingers were killing me. What is your secret to sewing the tips to the center. Not bad til I get the first half on and after that it is hard as the dickens to get needle thru there. I used a thimble and still pushed the end of my needle against table to help push it thru. I wanted to make a bunch but called it quits after two.

Peg: Your quilt came out beautiful. I really like the off-center panel and the fabrics you chose. Yes, quilters are an extremely generous group and your son's family will love it.
