19th and 20th finishes for 2016

I was gone all day Saturday visiting and grocery shopping. By the time I got home it was 5 p.m. and I still had to put away groceries. I stitched a little bit on the binding, but I was tired. On Sunday I finished the binding on both baby quilts! This one is 36" x 44.25 and I will be sending this to my sister for her friend's baby.

Here is the other one that is finished. It is 34.75" x 50". The backing is a linen look fabric. I reads like a solid in this picture.

I also made brownies and a few cut out cookies for the guys demolishing the building on site.

About 5:30 I went out to shovel the snow. We got about 2" and very wet snow. It kept sticking to the shovel which was quite annoying!

I need to make a girl quilt for a friend of my brother. The baby is due 12/24 or 12/25. He likes my zig zag quilts so I started cutting strips for the quilt.

I like both of the baby quilts. They are quite neutral in color and should work well into any nursery.

Love those quilts and that binding...yum. You'll have to try a bias binding with that fabric sometime.

Congrats on your finishes! I wish I was finishing something.....a quilt, a house.....or even a room!

Congratulations on both finishes - I love the way the binding adds a little zing around the edge.

Both quilts turned out really cute!
