A Finish and Some Flimsies

Woohoo! My first finish for 2015.....

The Scrappy Churndash lap quilt that I started this time last year.

Please excuse the photos on this post. The color is dull and not true. They were made with flash lighting in my sewing studio last night.

Donder and Blitzen by Jan Patek. I started this one before Christmas, but laid it aside to do Snowmen. It is ready to quilt when I get my machine back.

And the Country Threads BOM. Finished putting this one together last night. The binding is cut and I was able to pull backing (6 yards of it) from stash. Just need batting and it will be on its way to be quilted. If you made this and are thinking yours doesn't look quite the same...it probably isn't. The whole top section of it is flipped because I used a directional fabric in the top left hand block, and when I assembled it, I put it in upside down. No way I was tearing it out when I could just flip the whole section. I don't think it really changes the overall look, anyway, so glad to have this one off my plate.

Tonight is Happy Hookers. I am looking forward to seeing everyone. Seems a long time since last month. And it has been awhile since I pulled up any loops. My bag is packed and ready.

Now I need to get dressed, run a few errands and have a good Mexican lunch with hubby, friend Dave and daughter Christi. Thinking some Mexican Chicken Rice soup would be good on this chilly day.

Take Care,


  1. Jennie,

    LOVE your finishes. I can't decide which one I like best.
    Happy hooking :)
