Catch Up

While you wouldn't know it from this blog, I really have been doing a lot of sewing. Here's a bit for catch up.

I made a doll quilt and pillow for a little girl as part of Operation Christmas Child.  It is really a shame I didn't have a chance to take more pictures.  It was quite cute.  So was the little pillow that I made to go with it.  I had so much fun making this little quilt!  I even roped a friend into doing it with me.  I hope to do this again next year!

  Please ignore the cheesy smile.  My husband made me. :)

I quilted and made a binding for an oldie but a goodie.  Doesn't that binding look so pretty rolled up?  I may have postponed sewing it onto the quilt just so I could take a picture of it!  

I have a nearly finished top of for a quilt using my Daisy Chain fabric.  I am currently indecisive on the border.  I'm so close though!

I have made some serious headway on the Christmas quilt!  Yay!  I'm LOVING it!  I'm hoping to make it about twin sized.  After having this quilt around, I have come to appreciate the bigger quilts.  Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to have this quilt done in time to use for Christmas.  I am about halfway there.  Only 200+ more flying geese to make! Only...

And besides that, I have hosted a few sewing nights at my home.  Those have been so much fun!  I have loved the opportunity to share the love of quilting with my friends.  I'm in the process of teaching one how to make her first quilt.  Exciting!  I'm hoping to have many more of those to come.

Good to see you back and yay for teaching a friend to quilt, it's a lot of fun, isn't it? Quilting is so social, I love that :)

Great projects!! The Amy Butler fabric looks so fresh. You've inspired me to take a new look at the charm pack I have of hers languishing in my stash.

The Christmas quilt in progress looks super!

I love how your Christmas quilt is coming along.

I'm going to bookmark the Samaritan's Purse shoebox things for next year. I love the quilt and pillow you made to accompany the doll.

And...we are big Ticket to Ride fans here, too. Do you like Settlers of Catan and Agricola too?
