I buckeled down last night and finished the two tie pillows. I am happy with how they turned out. They are now wrapped and sitting on the lady's desk who is getting them for Xmas; she is a coworker. The ties came from a close friend who passed away several years ago. I have had the ties for several years so it is good they are now made into pillows and out of my house. They finished about 14" and I did put a zipper in the back.

Yeah rah! I got the pastel flannel quilt done! It's the same size as the dark flannel quilt.

Well here is where I am at on the pastel flannel quilt: I am over halway done with hand stitching on the binding! Not bad when I think that the blocks were in pieces still just on Dec. 6. I packed the quilt up this morning so I can stitch on it at lunchtime.

I only made a bit more progress on getting the pastel flannel quilt quilted since I had company last night, but it is all good. I got three more blocks quilted which now puts me at about 50% done with the quilting. I have to get the quilting done this weekend in order to have this quilt done for Christmas. Yikes!

I am now 91% done with quilting the dark flannel quilt. My plan is to finish the quilting tonight and sew on the binding. I will leave the hand sewing of the binding for my lunch hours next week. Here is the front and the back so you can see how much I have left to quilt.

I am now 70 percent done with the quilting! Woohoo! I ought to be putting on the binding by this weekend. I won't do the hand sewing though; I will save that to do at work on my lunch hour. I will use my time at home for getting the pastel top put together.
