Finishing the unfinished

I've been a busy little bee.  We had house guests for a week and a half, while fun, it is also tiring.  You know how it goes.  On top of that, we've had some other things going on.  Hubby got offered a new job and we had to think long and hard about whether he should take it, as it would mean a lot of changes for our family.  In the end we decided to go for it.  We like a challenge.

In the meantime, I've been trying to wrap up some unfinished projects.  I finally got my place mats for Meals on Wheels done.
The first one I quilted is a little rough, but the second one turned out nicely.

Then I finished insetting my circles for Lily's Quilts QAL.
 I left out the borders because I wanted it to fit the piece of minky I had for the backing.  Because I used minky for the backing, I went ahead and tied it.
 This quilt is for Baby Girl.  I used scraps from the BGBGB quilt.  I wanted it to be nice and cuddly.  Baby Girl picked out the minky back herself.  I was really hoping that she would decide she liked it better than the current Blankie, but no dice.

I've had this little quilt finished and hanging over my railing for months awaiting a label so I could mail it off to the baby who was born in January.  I don't know why I put off doing the little 10 minute finishing jobs.

 Anyway, it's now packed and addressed and ready to go.

  1. They all turned out VERY cute! The Minky idea is great- my daughter has a minky quilt and it is envied by everyone in the family. Thanks for your comment and link! :o)
