Family Time

It was fabulous to have a little break from normal activities.  The kids are already counting the days until Christmas vacation.  I did manage to do a little sewing during the Thanksgiving break.

I put 2 borders on a signature quilt for Betty and made the backing.  I think they complement all the signature blocks well.

I resurrected these blocks from a container with determination of coming up with a layout and completion.  The blocks will finish at 6".  I ran out of the gold check, so I found a scrap of something else...didn't have enough of that, so I found a scrap of brown.  It will be fun to see what scraps I can find for the backing.  The pieces that were too small for the front will definitely make it on back.

This heap of fabric made great progress this weekend too.  It now ready for the 2 halves to be joined.  I discovered that I can get a lot of pinning done while watching football.  I am not sure why this didn't occur to me sooner.  I guess it is time to dig out those long forgotten projects and get pinning.  

I proclaimed this the year of finishing for me.  I have finished several things, but I have a lot more to go.  The push is on!!

I like the layout of your signature quilt. I've been trying to keep some binding, trimming or sorting projects to do on Sundays too. I don't always watch the games but I listen!
