Here's another from a few years ago. The top was done and waiting for quilting. Now I just need to find the rest of the border fabric so I can bind it.

Got the binding on this one, started hand sewing to the back last night. It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern.

This was a mystery quilt we did in our small local guild. It was several years ago, and I finally managed to finish it.

It's snowing again today, we got several inches yesterday and now with this storm, maybe a foot total. It is cold and snowy and dark out, but up in the quilting studio, it feels like summer, thanks to my talented customers, Julie and Brenda. It is a happy place to be.

Here are some fabrics I dyed on Sunday. The ones on the left are 1/2 yds with mostly one color. The stack on the right and in the top photo are from parfaits. I wanted autumn colors and am pleased with the results.

I'm determined to spend more time in 2010 finishing some UFO's, but I just couldn't resist adding one more to the pile after Christmas. I have also decided that I will make quilts for all my siblings and their kids. So some of my UFO's will have homes right away. This one will be for a sister. It is in batiks and the blocks are 8", so I will need about 100 blocks and a small border. There will likely be enough blocks left over for a lap quilt in this design. I hope.
