The Pictures are Here!!

Today was a good day. I finally got the pictures off the camera and they are here on the blog!! YEAH!!!

This first picture is a Christmas Candles wall hanging that was a class sample from about 9 years ago. It's a stained glass creation and was lots of fun to do. I have a pattern around here somewhere for a floral one and I would love to do it but I have to find the pattern first...LOL

I hand quilted this one while we were on vacation. I love the cross hatching on it. On the border there are large ornaments and I quilted around those as well but it's hard to see that in the picture. I love the way it turned out too. Now I have to wash it and its all ready for the holidays.

The second quilt I finished is a donation quilt for my friend Cynthia. She is adopting her son from China and I am giving her this quilt to help raise money so she can get him home. It's a queen size quilt and all made from my stash. I didn't have to buy anything but the batting and backing. Unfortunately even though I used a ton of fabric for this quilt you can't tell from my stash. I still have more fabric then I will ever use!! I love how it turned out. My older daughter picked the 2 borders for me because I couldn't decide which one looked better. The binding is a great coral fabric.

What do you think of them? Let me know. I also went to school today and worked in my classroom. We finished adding trim to my bulletin boards in the class. My one daughter got all my phonics papers filed away, while the other daughter worked on the boards and also cutting letters out for them, she also did a bunch of laminating for me and cut everything out. I would never get it all done if it wasn't for them. They are a big help to me.

Get quilting!!!
