    Finally catching up with Christmas quilts

    Nov. was a bad month at our house--my husband's stroke scare that thankfully turned out to be Bell's Palsy and a staph infection in the glands on that side of his head; the new flooring in my quilting studio/basement that ran into problems(but is wonderfully finished!) and things like work & family. But I have managed to get several things caught up. The first is a customer baby quilt--cheery pinwheels. The 2nd and 3rd quilts are embroidery quilts that my sis, the Embroidery Queen, put together and had me quilt. only 3 more quilts (which have to be done this week) and then I get to work on a couple of projects of my own!Name:  IMG_3626.JPG

    Hopefully the worst is behind you and I wish you a joyous holiday season.

    Your quilting is spectacular and you choose great motifs for each project. Great job.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    yes to Winter Wonderland and I think you are correct on the Grandpa's bridges--her son just moved into Winterset IA and even though these are not those bridges, they are still covered bridges!

    The quilts are beautiful, but your quilting of them is OUTSTANDING! Wish I could learn the FMQ skill...........
    I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing.

    I just love the red work covered bridges. We have seven covered brides in our county. They even have a self guided tour to see them all in an afternoon. Beautiful thread work on all of your quilts. Thank you for sharing.
