Hurrah! Two Quilted and Bound

This is the Christmas string quilt made from the strings I won on the wonderful Millie's blog a while back.  The border fabric entered my stash from my friend Sandy.

The backing is this fun fleece.  Got to have a little extra warmth this time of year.

A little close up of the quilting while it was still on the frame.  I just did a free-hand swirlie thing.

I quilted and bound this one made by Sandy.  It is another of those Ten Minute Block quilts.

The backing is a Jenny Beyer print.

Here is a close up of the quilting - again free-hand, and certainly not perfect, but I like it anyway.  This one will be going to the Quilts for the Northwest for those who suffered through that horrible round of tornadoes.  Here is a link to the post where Bonnie Hunter told about this particular group.

It has been really cold here.  For us, that is.  We are not much accustomed to cold weather.  Even the dogs have to be covered.  Don't they looks sweet?? And funny.

Chloe just covers her face and takes a nap.  

I am cooking in preparation for our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.  We will enjoy family and thank God for all His blessings

Hope you have a wonderful time, too!

Hugs and kisses,

Hello Muddler ;-)
Love your two quilts shared here. The dotted fleece is wowser, it will cause a great deal of smiling (and I'm sure you intended that).LOL
Your free-hand quilting is wonderful, I'm jealous!
I'm feeling thankful to God today and I hope your family has a wonderful time too.
