How Many of You Can Say...

your jeans match your bed covers?  Is that taking clothes co-ordination a little too far do you think?  Perhaps, but when you have lots of heavenly scraps leftover, well why not?  Oh yes, and a doily!

Lots of leftovers also made this rather groovy pillow case just now.  It's fresh off the press.  Quilted just like the quilt will be so it should be snugly warm at night.

No 4's quilt top is also finished which is a huge relief.  Don't you just love it when you sew the last seam in a quilt?  Now I just need a wee trip to Spotlight for some backing fabric.  Not sure what I'll use yet.  I should use the linen fabric that I've used in the quilt, but it might add up to a little too much money if you know what I mean.  It's not like you really get to see the back of the quilt anyway.  Anyway we'll see.

I have been a busy beaver these holidays I can tell you!  My quilt for Gran's 90th birthday is warming her knees three weeks before her big day.  Well I didn't see the point in waiting when it's cold already.  Although still not that cold.  No heater on this morning and it's really quite warm out there today.

I used some scraps for the back piecing.  I was very, very impressed that all the seams on the back matched up with the quilting lines from the top quilting.  It's the little things that make me happy.

I'm feeling very good about finishing off these projects.  I do hate to have quilts sitting around and not finished. 

Now I really must go out with the girls.  I hope you lovelies are all well and perhaps enjoying the holidays too.  See you next time!
