the holiday rush is over.  We had a great-niece born in the family right before the new year!!!  So, I have been frantically making this.  I have had this little stack of fabric for half of forever, just waiting for a little girl to make this for!  I even had the squares all cut back when my machine was in the shop!  All that was left was to piece this sweet disappearing nine patch.

I used some extra squares for a little piecing on the back.  The straight line quilting shows off just how 'off' I was lining up the back.  Rats!  Oh well, I never was perfect!

The binding is my favorite fabric from the front.  Beautiful aqua with sweet purple violets!  Come on Spring!

Since spring isn't anywhere near here, I made a double thick flannel blanket too!  We girls must be toasty.

My Henna Love quilt top is done, and I will try to share it Friday...if I can find someone to hold it for pictures!!  I have started piecing the back using left over blocks that I cut up.  Yummy!!

  5. Oh my gosh you have been busy! The purples in the baby quilt are so sweet and lovely! I also like the binding! I can't wait to see more of your henna quilt. I am so inspired here today... I need to go get cracking on a project!
