with one day to spare!

With only one day to spare, my nieces' quilts are finished.
This one is a Raggy quilt made for my sister's oldest daughter.

And there are two quilts like this one... one for each of her youngest girls, who nearly think they are twins.

I wanted to make all three of them raggy quilts, but the black fabric, cute though it is, is NOT flannel. Despite the fact that it was in the flannel aisle and I was not paying attention the day I bought all the fabric for these projects. So, I made them into regular quilts. They are very warm. The colors didn't turn out as cute as I had hoped, but each of the quilts is very much made with love, so hopefully that will add to the charm.

ah.... now quilts for my sister's girls

Whew! The whirlwind of activity and stuff I had to do for others is done. Now onto something I have been wanting to get to for a month now: raggy quilts for my sister's girls.

The two youngest ones like pink and green and the older one likes purple. I have cut about half of the material into 6 inch squares. When I finish that, the fun part of laying out each of the quilts begins, and then onto the sewing and "ragging".

Hopefully in January I can get to finish the other quilts I am making for moi.

Merry Christmas, y'all!

pedaling as fast as possible

I am busily embroidering stuff for others to give as Christmas gifts, so my time is not my own for awhile. I'm hurrying though, because there is so much I want to finish/start.
