At year's end...where to start??

Received this beautiful Christmas tree from's the amazing quilting detail-- Thankyou Barb!
Love the fabric choices!! And this little gem (measuring approx. 1 1/2 inches total!) is from Judy...
It's so pretty on a sweater.Thankyou, Judy! The detail is amazing here too! Ok, enough about me. Take a look at this quilt created by a 19 year old young man for his bride-to-be! The only thing his Mom asked me to do was put a white binding on! (He couldn't pick a color or a pattern--so he chose white, very logical!)
His Mom said he found a tutorial online and jumped in! I was very proud to be asked to bind it--just by machine, so he could have it back quickly...
After finishing this, it got me thinking of all the semi-unfinished quilts in my own sewing room!! Where to start?? ;-)
Have a HAPPY and safe New Year! Enjoy everything this wonderful season has to offer. And get some time in for quilting!! :-)

An early Christmas gift......

Our son and daughter-in-love gave us our beautiful first grandchild, Logan Andrea, on November 29. We are 'over the moon' in love with her!! Mom, Dad, and Logan are doing fine and we can't wait to see them in person soon! In the meantime.........

 a little Christmas sewing. Purchased this soft book at Delphine's quilt Shop in Gaylord, Mich. last year. It turned out very nice.
Spent a lovely morning with the BQFFs at breakfast...Judy was 'downstate' for the weekend and Barbara and I got to spend time with her.

Working on a couple more gifts--but the recipients might see them I'll wait to post them. Have a great weekend and happy (Christmas!) sewing......... ;-)
