Last Finish in 2011

This quilt was made for my niece for her high school graduation. I hate to admit that I started it years ago and I still didn't have it finished in time for her graduation. BUT she does have it now and I hope that she enjoys it for a long time. I did put a hanging sleeve on the back so she can either hang it or use it!

The quilt top was mostly from a kit, but I added a few more batiks so I could make the quilt bigger. The backing is all purple batiks that I had in my stash.

Sew until next time........

Happy New Year!! I'm Back!

I'm back in a couple of ways!!  Hopefully back to blogging on a regular basis, which I've never been quite able to accomplish and I'm back from a wonderful 3 week vacation which took us from New Orleans to Portland, Or. and back by car in DECEMBER!!!!  Were we crazy when we first started planning this trip, or just hopeful that everything would just work out with the weather?  Most people thought we were crazy, but it did turn out wonderful!!   We had to shut things down for one day coming back because of "white out" conditions in WY.  The next day we saw what was left in the storms aftermath---4 over turned 18 wheelers left on the side of the road!
But the best part of the trip was spending time with DD and her hubby for the Christmas holidays!!  So much to do and see and so little time, but we enjoyed every minute! 
I don't want to make this too long because I know how BORING a post can be with no "eye candy" (pics), but I promise to be back soon and on a regular basis!!!  That's my resolution!

Sew til next time...................
