I'm so Proud of Katie

You all saw blocks of this quilt back around Thanksgiving. Katie started this quilt for her friend's new baby girl while they were here for Thanksgiving. She finished putting the top together and sent it back to me last week, I had told her that I would sew the borders on for her because she had never done that and was a little nervous. So today was the day for the borders and tomorrow I taking it to be quilted while I'm gone...Didn't she just do the best job...I am SO proud of her.

 


Yesterday I worked on another Hometown Christmas block...silly me...I thought this would get me caught up, WRONG, when I checked again this was actually the block for Dec. 30...so I still have one more block to do to be caught up.
 


Once I finished the block I decided that I would sew 2 rows together...I'm really liking it and I'll have a new quilt ready for Christmas. YIPPEE!
