Finished Just in Time

I managed to finish two quilts for Christmas.  The binding was on just in time to give these as gifts on Christmas Eve.

The quilt above is from a pattern in Best Fat Quarter Quilts magazine from Quilters Newsletter called "love & kisses".  I quilted it in an allover panto called Henna Flower which was so much fun to stitch and I am thrilled with the finished quilt.  I was almost hesitant to give it away ;)
The next one is another quilt based on a pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew. which nicely uses up a jelly roll.  I quilted  an allover panto called Lace which was also great fun to stitch. I used gold thread which I thought was fairly bold but I love the finished look.

Now, with a few more days off work this week, I am happily back to piecing my Dresden plate blocks.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and hope you find lots of time to quilt in 2014.

What a nice pattern that first one is -- a great way to show off a nice collection. And I love both the pantos too!

Happy New Year!
