for The Poppas

My oldest son always referred to his grandparents as The Poppas (we call them Mema and Poppa) so this quilt is for The Poppas!  Karen the Quilter did a really good job on it.  I was so pleased it arrived yesterday.  I'm planning to give it to The Poppas as an early Christmas present-which I will do if I can get it labeled and get rid of this nascent cold I've acquired.  I'm really pleased to have this one finished!  For some reason the border fabric doesn't photograph well-it's really a bright green.

my lunch today

More fabric for mom's quilt-I plan to border it and back it with the shell fabric.

The red/brown print will be binding for yesterday's prim santa.

The dots. . .not quite sure but may use them on the pilgrims.  I couldn't find more of the fabric I needed so I may need to try something else.

ran out of fabric!

I was working on the seashell quilt for my mom and ran out of fabric.  So I picked up my pilgrims-would like to finish that this year.  And I ran out of fabric.  So I made this primitive Santa instead.  It's a Jan Patek pattern that I have been wanting to do for years.  It needs a bit more quilting and then binding.  I think I'm going to wash this one and get it all crinkly and vintage looking.


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
