    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.Name:  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.

    Love your quilt too. BUT, those ornaments are to de for!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    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.

    The quilt is a great idea. I does get cold up there.

    I tried to make one using the instructions. Ended up threading all the triangles on the needle & thread first (I repeated the first two triangles to make the loop) and then through the center of the base. Then through all the triangles again and then sewed the buttons on. It seemed secure enough and was much easier.

    Your son and his family will love the quilt. The ornaments are beautiful. Where did you find the pattern?
