    Here are some pics of a quilt that I finished yesterday. It'll be a birthday present for my mother-in-law whose birthday is next weekend.

    It's made from a layer cake collection called "Mill House Inn" by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda. I just made hourglass blocks out of the layer cake layers since I wanted something simple to showcase the nice fabrics in the collection. I picked some yardage from the same collection for the borders, backing, and binding. The quilt measures 54" x 81", and I did free-motion quilting all over it.

    Eddie--how many quilts did you make in 2009? I'm totally amazed! And you are doing such a great job! How long have you been quilting? My husband started quilting last year, but was ill and hasn't picked it up in awhile. And then I had foot surgery which prevented me from using my machine to sew (I still did some hand piecing...). I'm hoping we can get going again on the long list of quilts we want to do, now that the holidays are behind us and I am walking again.
    Anyway, just wanted to say, but took a long time saying it--good job!

    Me, too! They are one of my favorite designers. I use their lines of fabric a lot.

    Well, I haven't written a word. The program chairperson told me to just wing it and talk off the cuff, so I guess we'll see how that goes. Kind of nervous, though!

    I counted them up while ago, and I think it's 25. I started back in May 2009, so that's 8 months ago. I guess that's about 3 a month. And I still have a long list of ones in my head that I want to do. :-D
