Finishes, Find a Fabric & Holidays

They are done– finally!!

These are the boys quilts that have had the quilt tops finished for a bit, but the quilting and binding. That's another story!  This week i was pestered enough, thanks boys..and finished them up. 

One was even quilted already! So– a quick modern angular quilting, and some binding with flannel and we are all ready for the beds for the winter.   The backs are grey swirly flannel and the inside batting.  Well- that is a wool blanket!  

I had picked up a few wool blankets that had seen a better day…washed them, and they became batting for the quilts.  Let me tell you– they are wonderful!!!  The quilts are totally heavy and snuggly.  I was wondering if they would make it through the night — pinned to the bed unable to move. lol   This morning they reported that they are indeed alive and would like to take them everywhere with them. 

You can find the free Wheelies Quilt over on Moda Bake Shop

I popped into a few stores the other day and picked up a few goodies.  Apparently I am on a very graphic kick– this is what i came home with

My favorite is the bird and apple print + the green is a beautiful color!! I have some ideas brewing….just as soon as i finish up a few other things i am working on.

I also picked up a playmat.  Kind of like a table cloth cover fabric….for girls!  I am planning on cutting half of it up {eliza has spoken for the other half} and making some pouches. How fun would that be!?

And– man i hit a good day because i found a flat sheet too–

Here's to hoping that I find some time during the Thanksgiving holidays to sew a little bit with them!  

Do you have any sewing holiday plans?
