Baby Quilt

No automatic alt text available.

I finished this quilt top today. I should be wrapping gifts but decided to get this done instead. I have to work the next 3 days and then it will be Christmas weekend. I just wanted to finish this and know it was done!

This quilt only needed 12 blocks and some narrow sashing. Nice and quick! I just tried to distribute the darker colors throughout the quilt. I think the colors are spread out nicely.

I don't usually shop at Joann's but I love using Hello Kitty fabric for the backing. I think it will be a nice addition to the fabrics from the quilt top.

Time to go back to getting ready for Christmas! Hope to start quilting this one soon!

Doily and Slabs

I just finished my knit doily. I think it came out pretty good. I didn't like sewing on the border but it wasn't that bad. This...
