12 Days of Christmas is DONE!

I put the final stitches in the binding last night.  It took me about 24 or so days to get my 12 Days of Christmas mini quilt done.  But I do love it in the reds and whites.  Sad thing is I don't have enough wall space for all of the Valentine's Day quilts I've made.  And, my dog is notorious for getting things off of tables so I doubt it will be sitting on a table like it was for this photograph.   I hand quilted in each of the blocks except #1 as I didn't have a stencil nearby at the time.  I did not quilt in the little border either.  I made my borders narrower than what the pattern called for.  I thought the borders as given in the directions overpowered the little blocks.

Today I loaded my first Scrap Squad quilt on Ruthie.  She was purring away with no problems.  YEAH! She has been feeling neglected as I haven't had any thing to put on her since late November.  After I finished with the quilting, I began putting the borders on the quilt I showed Monday.  I'm going with the pink borders and should get them on tomorrow. And thanks to all the folks who gave their opinions.  I need to figure out how to use that tan/brown fabric that was choice #3.  I've had it for a good long while!    Maybe I'll be able to put this quilt on Ruthie on Monday.  I have the backing -- can't remember if I need to piece it or not.  Probably.  Bummer.

That's all that's new here.

Happy Quilting Everyone!
