The Christmas Quilts Are Out!

The decorating is finished and I have to show you some of my Christmas quilts!  It was a cold windy day, so my pictures may not be the best.  I need to find a better place inside to take my pictures.  It's just not real convenient to drag everything outside!  I made extra sure to bring in the dining room chair I was using to hang the quilts. I'd hate to leave the chair in the driveway and later back over it with my car!  That would be difficult to explain!

It's A Wrap! by pieces from my heart
Don't you love the bias binding?

 I didn't buy enough fabric for the backing to make it go the direction I wanted. To make up for the difference, I added some extra blocks to the back to make it work! It took some extra time, but I think it was worth it!

Also, last Friday I spent lots of time at my LQS sewing and eating dinner with friends.  I worked on the next Le Petite Project.  More pictures coming soon!
