WIP Wednesday -- Merry Christmas too!

Merry Christmas everybody!!!

I got a lot done this week!  Whohoo!

I made a simple quilt back for this LQG charity quilt.

I also got a simple quilt back made for LQG hand-piece Irish chain quilt (sorry, no photo)

I finished my Scrappy Christmas QA quilt from last year.  I quilted it with red thread in Circle Lord swirls.  It reminds me of peppermint candies on this quilt.

I'm soooo happy with the back of this quilt!

My Frosty & Friends snowman quilt found a happy home at my son's kindergarten teacher's house.

For the FNSI project I made a quilt back for my Quilt Doodle Designs 2013 BOM quilt.

Here's my pieced back:

I finished my December Block Lotto "Stripes" blocks.

We are also having a special drawing for orphan blocks of past Block Lotto drawings.  Either we had blocks left over or blocks that weren't just perfect, we can enter them in this special drawing.  Here's my six blocks that I am throwing into the hat.
I finished Clue 4 for Celtic Solstice.  (I'm still not done with those chevrons...)

New Projects 

Giant Sunburst QA quilt (Started & finished a quilt top this week).  Look... no snow for this day.  It got up to the mid 50's for a couple of days.  The ground is back to being snow covered again for Christmas.

I'll also be joining the Mosaic Tiles QA as soon as I get the eBook from the library.
