Keeping busy

What I was not able to finish before Christmas, I was able to do in the couple of weeks after! Here are a couple of placemats I started in November 2009! finally done! I am using these small pieces to practice my machine quilting. I think I am getting better. Free pieced letters inspired by Lazy Gal.

Here is a doll quilt I made for a friend's daughter. I made the top ages ago from scraps my SIL gave me...I think they were left over from a jelly roll, so I tried out a bargello style from them.

Again I am practicing my machine quilting.

I pieced the back and even the batting from leftovers.

This top for a crib quilt is made from leftovers from my cousin's baby quilt I made last year...when I ran out of the green fabric, I used the stripey fabric.

Great projects Carol! I piece batting together for doll quilts too and for table runners :-). Great way to use up all those small pieces!

Really like those place mats too.
