2nd and 3rd finish of 2012

Now we are cooking with gas! The aqua quilt is finaly done! Here is the finished quilt, the back, and a detail shot.



So then I decided to quilt a baby quilt that I already had pin basted. I quilted it on Saturday and bound it on Sunday morning. This will go into my stash of quilts for when I need a quilt on short notice.

We had our annual company meeting yesterday and I knitted as I watched and listened. The space between the needles shows how much I got done. I hate just sitting and doing nothing.

Look at this lovely linen I scored a deal on. I am going to use it for baby quilts - something improv pieced. There was a good 10 yards of fabric and at least 7 1/2 of the large plaid which will be wonderful for the backs. The orginal price tags on the fabric was $74.00 a yard! I paid about $4.00 a yard for it.

Last evening I started quilting the last pin basted baby quilt left from last summer. I should have it done by the weekend then I can work on pin basting a few more baby sized tops I have laying around.
