One down and the 2nd will be started with that little ball to the right. Will I make it before Christmas? Probably not if the speed of the first one is any indication. lol
What I'm really proud of is finishing the quilt for my friend Barb's husband. As I mentioned before, she passed suddenly and we were all shocked. She and I were at a retreat together when she started feeling bad. We took her to the hospital in the nearest city, and they ran tests, but said she should see her own doctor. She did that as soon as she got home. Less than a month later she was gone.
Barb had many, many UFOs, as we quilters do, and I offered to finish them and give them to her family as designated. This one was started for her husband. Now it's totally finished, bound, labelled and will be given to her husband for Christmas. Yahoo!!
Here's a closer view of the piecing. Lots of scrappy goodies.
A view from the back.

The other quilt that I finished this week was pieced by Mary S, and I quilted it. It was a Block of the Month from Susie Q's Quilt Shop in O'Fallon, MO. It's a Wing and A Prayer design called Mulberry Stars and is all done in batiks.
