I can't believe I only have 5 finishes for the year. I guess I have been busy doing other things. Well, here is the flannel quilt. It finished 82" x 97". I did get the tote bag done for it, but I forgot to take a picture.

I didn't get the label on the quilt or a picture taken, but I did get the tote bag cut out.

I managed to get the last 10 inches of binding sewn before I went to work. I will attach a label tonight, make a tote bag for it, and then take a picture of the entire finished quilt to post tomorrow.

I haven't been all that ambitious about getting things done the last couple of days. I now have one long side of the binding hand stitched on the flannel quilt.

I feel like this is the quilt that will never get done! I did make more progress last evening by getting the corners mitered and the top trimmed. I don't know if you all do this step or not - when I get a side trimmed, I press the binding to the outside to crisp up the seam line. I have a girlfriend that I showed that to the last time she was visiting and she had never done that. It just make the binding roll to the back easier and makes for a nice finish.

I got distracted last evening. Here is what I did manage to get done on the flannel quilt - the binding is sewn on and it's now ready for me to miter the corners. I will not have this done to pass off tomorrow, but that's ok. It's a Xmas gift so I have time.

I did pretty good this weekend, but it did have it's ups and downs. I did get the flannel quilt quilted and have some of the binding sewn on. Sunday was the quilting and this morning before work was a bit of the binding.
