Free Friday Funday!

Today I got a massage and then sewed the day away.  It was so nice and relaxing!  I got out the Viking machine and quilted my cousin's baby quilt with a serpentine stitch.  It turned out pretty good and Zoey jumped right on it for the picture.
 Here you can see I got it bound.  I put a label on it Bonnie style for the first time and it was super easy to do.  I washed and dried it so after  I write on the label I can get it out to my cousin Ashley and her hubby Ches.
 We got the border fabric in the mail today so that inspired me to get the dark green borders on Packer/Celtic Solstice.  I put a three inch outer border on instead of a two inch.
 I also sewed up the backings for the Packer quilt and for the Mickey Mouse NYE Quilt.  They are now all loaded in the car (along with Jack in the Box) for Ros.  I can't wait for her to get back from vacation...:)
Then since I had so many finishes I decided to start something new!  I have a pregnant Deaf friend back in Wisconsin that I promised a baby girl quilt to.  It hit me the other day that I really wanted to do Bonnie's "Maverick Stars" so I am doing a baby sized one!  My stars are definitely wonky!  I am enjoying making them and the top should get done this weekend.  
Oh I also quilted two more Rock Candy tabletoppers and got them ready for binding.  They didn't get done in time for Christmas, but we didn't really need them so I guess I am ahead for next year!

Wow, wow and wow again! There is no better way to celebrate a finish than to start something new and those star blocks are ADORABLE! Love them.
