You've Seen these in process...

Did you Freda's Hive Today?
And if not, better get over there quick because today is the last day! Well, at least to potentially win a prize!









...well, here they are finished. I had meant to post these as I finished them. But, well, I put up so many pictures as I was making them that it hardly seemed worthwile.


Not only that, but it's winter in Seattle and there has not been even an inch of blue sky in eons! So today, I thought I would take advantage of a dry sky (if not actually blue).



The first, of course you've seen before is my little guys christmas quilt, the backing is just one big piece of fabric that he picked out months ago "If you ever make me a christmas quilt mommy will you put this on the back?" What could I do!



This second is for my middle daughter. Also featured here on my blog as I put the backing on it and did the quilting. I know she will love the back, because it has many fabrics with gold detail and she LOVES any and all bright and shiny things, including fabrics. For the binding, I found a technique on the internet that I thought I would try, but I wasn't really pleased with the result. Still, probably only I will notice.
