Deana: I have been piecing and machine quilting.

I have another top well on its way to finished.  I want it finished this year, so I have been sewing on it a little each day.  All it needs now is a pieced border and a final white border.  

The pieced border units are done; I just need to assemble them.



Last week was our Priceless Quilter's Christmas dinner and quilt exchange.  It is a tradition we have been doing for about 14 years.  I love these women so much!  There are only 6 of us.  Four of them still sew together once a week and then Deb and I sew once a week.  We don't all sew together because Deb and I work and the others don't.  Sewing during the day works for them and sewing at night works for us. Besides that, Deb and I live in a different county than the others.

Here are the quilts we gave each other this year.  We have a rotation on who gives to who each year.  It is so much fun!






This is the one I received and the darling bag I received it in. 




Notice the darling border that goes perfectly with the flower blocks.



This is the one I gave.  My followers have already seen it.





I am also nearly 2/3 done with a quilt I am machine quilting.  I want it done this weekend before family comes if at all possible.  We will see what today brings.  I also need to clean house and bake goodies for neighbors.  Yes, it should be a full couple of days!

Wow! You are really rocking it this month with all the work you're accomplishing! I've already got company, so no quilting happening until the 27th. Looks like a fantastic place to have your dinner at, and you got a quilt with perfect cheery colors for January's dreary days!
