    Here are some pictures of my latest finished projects. All except the baby quilt are for our vacation home in Cheboygan. The baby quilt is for my nephews newest baby. I made hugs and kisses blocks. It was a lot of fun. I called it Butterfly Kisses.

    Nice! I like the fabs in the runners and placemats. Was it hard to make something to fit that odd size window sill?

    Thanks. Thje fabrics were from Susan Winget's line carried be Joanns. I'm going to make a quilt and then use up the leftovers in more placemats and things. And yes it was a royal pain to get it just so. I started by making 3 -12 in. Blocks. The length is 73 in. But at the ends only a few inches deep. I just made it the same width. After quilting, I laid it in the window and marked it with pins and then cut it. It's not perfect, but it works.

    I did a bay window runner to fit. It shrunk more than I expected so the next one will be 2" too big to start with.

    I wasn't sure how to update in the title so I'm going to add these pictures here.
