Hi, all!

Are you busy getting all your Christmas sewing finished up?  I know I am!  It's been a productive week, thankfully - I'm glad to be able to say I've finished some things I needed to get done!  Let's look at last week's list.....

1.  Finish a quilt for the Monday night prayer service.
Done!  This was a lovely top, pieced by Sharon, that I bordered and quilted...

2.  Finish a quilt for a woman with cancer.
Done!  Another top pieced by Sharon...

3.  Finish Lilli's quilt.
Hallelujah - - - Done!!!  I'll post more pics later this week, 
but here's one quick shot...

4.  Bind and deliver the commission quilt.
Done and delivered!  More pics after Christmas...

5.  Cut out my friend's upholstery pieces.

  1. It's been said many times, but it bears repeating: You are an amazing woman! I think I left my Christmas spirit in the hospital last week, but I hope someone home-delivers it back to me soon :D

  2. Lilli's quilt is adorable:) I'm so impressed that you hand quilted it. The commission quilt looks beatiful!
    I'm working on two is cut and partially sewn:) Been making a few things for the Etsy shop, too.

  3. Lilli's quilt is gorgeous, from what we can see. I love the muted colours. I love the Hallelujah too. :)

  4. pray tell what is Dirty Santa??? The juxtaposition of Dirty Santa and Quilt Ministry is somewhat intriguing.. !

  5. The peek of Lilli's quilt is wetting the appetite for more - love this line of fabric, so cute for a little girl. Yes, dirty santa and a quilt ministry - I want to hear that one more.

  6. Oooh, the hand quilting on Lilli's quilt compliments that fabric perfectly! I'm excited to see more of it!

  7. Your lists make me feel like such a slacker! LOL!

  8. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Yours, Ulla

  9. Looks like you have had another productive week, Sarah. Lilli's quilt is adorable, from what I can see. I've worked a little on the holiday carpenter's wheel wall hanging. Work decided to get busy this week, so it's happening in fits and starts. Hoping for a Friday finish, but I'm not may be the weekend before it gets done completely.

  10. My you have finished some lovely quilts. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more pictures.
