Sunday Night Quilting Updates

Well it is almost time to call it a day and I have taken my pictures of quilting progress. I finished the quilting on the Winter 9 Patch Pizzazz, all it needs is the binding. Since it is not a priority to get it done. I hung it on the wall the way --it is without the binding. I'll do that after the Christmas gifts are done.

Next the Festive Santa, I worked some more on the binding. It's been nice to have some hand work to do. It really has a messy spot on the resting border. I was going to try and quilt it out, but I don't think it will work it might even make it worse. I don't think it will be very obvious to the untrained eye. I'll have to think on it some more.

Last but not least is the Skier. I'm making this for a friend for Christmas. I had three backgrounds to chose from and it took me a couple of the days to decide which one I liked the best. I'm not that crazy about the skies, but I had no medium brown, and now that it is fused to the background I'm out of luck. I'm using my stash only and not buy more fabric for these little projects. My friend is not a quilter so she will be thrilled. This technique is you applique and quilt at the same time. I have only appliqued the one ski.
