The Winter Quilt

I finished the winter/Christmas quilt that I have been working on all year doing the bloggers' block of the month designs.

This quilt is entered in the 2012 Winter/Christmas Quilt Show HERE at the Quilting Tutorials Blog.  Be sure to go over and look at all the Winter/Christmas quilts.

 This weekend I plan to put away my Fall things, including the fall quilt on the back of the couch.  I'm sorry to see fall end, but its time to get rid of all the pumpkins and sunflowers.

This quilt isn't too Christmassy so it can stay out all winter.

Thank you Coleen for the wonderful Winter fabrics!

Zoology Baby Quilt

Life has slowed down a little bit for me.  The loss of my dear Mama and my hubby's knee replacement surgery are behind us.  The healing from both of these events is still in progress.... 

But since I had a 4 day weekend off from work, I got busy finishing up the baby quilt I was making for my step-grandson who is supposed to come in January.

A baby shower is planned for next weekend, so this will be my gift for Baby Walt.

Before binding the quilt on a sunny morning:

Turkey basting wasn't the only kind of basting going on Thanksgiving morning.  I was pin basting the quilt while the turkey was roasting.

 I started quilting it Thanksgiving afternoon.

The back:

A tiny heart.  I Wonder if Baby Walt will notice the heart when he is a little older and is cuddling with this quilt?

From my heart to yours, Baby Walt.
