2 more done!

I haven't been a complete slug this Holiday week. I have done exactly what I wanted to do: sleep late, spend time with my Hubby and quilt! We have also taken the dogs to run every afternoon. They love the snow and it is such fun to watch them play in it.

This is a wall quilt made from scraps. One inch strips pieced together, then crosscut and re-pieced. Looks tiny and impressive, but is quite easy!

The corners are my hand-dyed fabric. I FMQed feathers in the corners and meandered in the center.

This wall quilt is for my dining room. These fabrics were a set of batik fat quarters I bought with no project in mind. I did my half-square triangles. I love how the colors make it look like Kaffe fabric! 

I did really free-FMQ all over starting with ogees from top to bottom. I am so glad to have the time to complete these. I did no sewing last night but I may play a bit with fabric today. 

As we near the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011, here are my wishes:

I wish for all children to be loved, fed and safe
I wish for all pets to be loved, fed and safe
I wish for comfort to all who are sick and who mourn
I hope for peace

I am so grateful to all of you who stop by, read my missives and view my pictures. 

Happy 2011 my dear blog-friends.
