My first finished project in 2011

I know this may be hard to believe, but I am doing others things besides obsessing or working on the Dream House.....

The other day I sorted through some my fabric and card stamping things and decided to pack up some things I knew I wasn't going to need before the move. (Don't worry.....pass out.... or start squealing.....those are not all from my quilting/stamping area....some are clothes that are to big for Julia and won't be needed till after we move. Plus some other home decor stuff I had stashed in my closet.)

I had finished piecing this little table runner right after Thanksgiving, and even machine quilted it then. I still need to square it up and put the binding on. So I did that after I finished packing up things I won't need for a while. Here it is....

This is the very quilt that I have machine quilted. I free handed all the pumpkins and swirls myself!


 NO....they aren't perfect looking....YES I need to keep practicing. Overall, I am very happy with how it turned out. I also learned several things that I need to adjust next time around.
 Doesn't this pumpkin print with the brown binding SCREAM fall to you? It does me!

After sorting through things, here are the things I want to accomplish in the next couple of months.

1. Finish machine quilting a baby quilt
2. Finish piecing the top on a winter print quilt
3. Make pillowcases to match our new bed quilt
4. Make pillowcases for Julia's new bed quilt

I think theseshort projects are reasonable to accomplish amongst all the other things I have my hands in. The two bed quilts I finished in November are being finished up by the long-arm quilter as I write!!! I can't wait to see the final product....and of course I'll share pictures when I get them back!
