Merry Christmas Grace!

I put the final stitches in the binding this morning. This is now finished and ready to be mailed off to its new home.

My niece pieced the center then sent it to me along with the border fabric. I picked out backing and binding, attached the borders, then quilted it simply with an all-over meander and bound it.

I used a nice marble-look purple on the back.

I hope you will enjoy using it Grace!

I have a couple more projects for others to finish up. My plan is to get these done before the end of the year so that my January sewing time can be all about me. It's my birthday month and this is what I am giving myself, a whole of month of sewing just for me.

I have a couple of projects that having been sitting in pretty piles for months and at least a dozen tops that need to be quilted. I am not going to set any specific goals for myself (i.e. put pressure on myself to finish certain things), I'm just going to do only sewing for myself for the whole month. That means no store samples, no charity quilts, no gifts for others, just projects for me.

Merry Christmas!

Beautiful quilt! A whole month of sewing just for yourself sounds lovely, I might have to do that for my birthday month!
