To the victor go the spoils...

And yes, I was spoiled!!! Thanks to Rosa over at Rosa's World for the BRIGHT place mats and candy she sent me..

The front (I think)

and the back... with candy!!!

And to make the postal service happier, Carin over at Conceived Without Regard for Reason or Reality sent these wonderful spoils....

This is fabric for a BRIGHTly colored wall hanging or baby quilt. When I get it finished I'll post pics

And a really cool star quilts book (spiral bound even!) and some Hot Tamales!!

Thanks to both Rosa and Carin. You've made my month... Not a bad haul for it being my birthday month!!!

Talk about deadlines!

So a co-worker is expecting his 2nd child in January... No big deal... I have enough time to whip out a quilt and get it to him... Yesterday (Monday) he says that today (Tuesday) will be his last day!! So I come home and create this little baby quilt and a gift for the 2 year old big sister! The parents-to-be are both BIG Kansas Jayhawk fans and I'll bet the lil' one will be too!

The front and back of the baby quilt

a close up of the back.

And a crayon roll for the big sister .

It's time to gobble up this give away..

Elaine over at Faithful Quilter: Elaine's Journey is having a Give Away. Go enter and be Thankful if you win.

I've actually finished some projects!

I know it's been a few days since an actual quilting related post. But I have been busy on various projects. I've got my mother's quilt back from the long arm quilter, worked on my BOM, finished my sister's quilt top and it's now at the quilter and a few other projects. I have 2 more to start and finish before Christmas.

My mother's quilt is DONE!!!!

This block looks a lot better than the block from last month.

As soon as I get my other projects together and back from the quilter I'll post them for you.

Quilts For Kids

This is my contribution to the Quilts For Kids organization. It was a simple project and only took a few hours to complete. If you've got a few minutes to give, click over to Quilts For Kids and either request a kit (fabric for top and back are included, you supply the batting and thread) or send one of your own creations. You know you'd like to make a child smile.
