This is the backs as you can see I left them open so I could wash them after a while.
I did quilt some with loop-d-loops and some that look like puzzle pieces.

So to some sewing stuff. Yesterday I finished piecing the backs of my pillows. I was kind of nervous I wasn't going to have enough but I made it. It was a close one, this was all the fabric I had left. I got them all ready to quilt. So here goes nothing, I am going to dive in and do it. Oh I hope they turn out well without having to unpick too much.

Top and back are done. I just have to work up the nerve to machine quilt this on my own. I have to stop sending my quilts out to be quilted. It's killing my wallet. If I want to make more quilts I'm going to have to learn to do it myself. I have signed up for a freehand class but its not until April. This beautiful quilt might be sitting on the shelf for a while.

I made Wyatt and Dean big boy quilts with fun boy fabrics. I used my Hawaiian friends idea , One Shabby Chick and made up my own pattern. As I was collecting my fabrics, Wyatt said "You can't use any girly or baby fabrics on mine". Everyday for 3 weeks Wyatt would ask me if his quilt was done. I had the quilter put their names on them.
This one is Wyatt's with his favorite combine harvester.
This one is Dean's, he has the choo choo.
I started a new quilt with lots of fabric I have had for awhile. The pattern is called the "Almost oh my gosh." As you can see I put a quarter on it so you can see how small each square is. I have to repeat this about 80 more times. Paul thinks this will take me 30 years to complete it, we'll see.
I just completed this cute quilt for my cute husband even though it's not very boyish. He doesn't like to eat his vegis, so I am making him lie with them. He wanted it huge so his toes would be always covered. So this winter he will be nice and toasty dreaming of our garden next year.
He was a little upset thinking that he was just going to get good things to look at, so I gave him one strip of junk food to look at. Cookies and chips. Enjoy it Paul, that's all you are going to get, NOT THE REAL THING
To toot my own horn I made a beautiful quilt for Kati's soon to be baby girl. My cookies were a hit at the shower. They where lemon bars out of the box and with a little tweaking became lemon crisps. I put K's on each of them, for Kati. They looked and tasted AWESOME.
I think Kati was happily surprised about the baby quilt.

Shocked and thrilled is a more appropriate description of my feelings about the quilt! I LOVE it! Thanks again for such a great night--it was wonderful. I'm so glad to have good friends! (p.s. I hope you don't mind but I copied these pics for my blog. I don't know why I didn't remember to bring a camera!)
