    Recent projects completed

    I've been finishing up quilts, etc. mostly for Christmas gifts. Thought I'd share them with you. I haven't learned how to put tags on my pictures, so will tell you about them --the first one is from blocks I made and stuck away. I found them recently and finished them into this smallish quilt; The daisy one is a printed fabric that I quilted with a fleece background. It will probably be a charity quilt. The red/white/blue one is from a quilt of valor pattern a friend shared recently. The next one is farm scenes, which don't show up very well on the picture. The blocks are the same size, just turned differently. The last one is a panel I bought in Albuquerque while there for the balloon festival. The borders are from coordinates purchased at the same shop. This will be displayed next summer in my living room--I have a window I keep covered with a seasonal quilt year round.

    You have been very busy. They are beautiful but #1 is my favorite.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    What wonderful gifts. Many are going to have a lot of joy and warmth under their tree (smile). Nice work. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    They're all wonderful but I'd have to say the balloon quilt is my favorite since it's so bright and cheery! You have been one busy bee.
