Done, Done, and Done

I have officially completed all the projects I set out to do for Christmas this year!  I can say I achieved this by having a good idea of what I wanted to get accomplished early on (around the beginning of October), actually starting fairly early (around mid-November),  and setting out a schedule of what I wanted to get done when.

I made 5 quilts, 7 pillowcases (for wrapping paper), several microwave bowls, and lots of candy.  Yesterday, I put the final touches on the last quilt, i.e. stitching on the binding.

I am a big fan of striped binding.  I didn't quite have enough fabric to do this stripe on the bias, but once this was stitched down, I am really pleased on how it turned out.

Now back to my regularly scheduled sewing.  Mostly UFO's and older projects.

Not sure how you finished more than one quilt if you did not actually begin until Nov.? Even if you began in Oct. would be difficult I'd think. You did GOOD! Am impressed. I'd like to see the entire quilt with the striped binding. It looks great.
