I went to my BIL's for Thanksgiving-it was very nice and relaxed. They insisted I not bring anything so I picked up some GOOD beer (not lite) and brought this little wall hanging for him and his girlfriend-she loves homemade! I'm thinking of making a few of these for Christmas gifts. In the future I will quilt more and I think I've finally learned how to do mitered corners. Even though I have read many tutorials it just never clicked, but this one finally did! I can't seem to find that tutorial now, darn-but this one is pretty good too. So hopefully the next one will be better. This is cute JoAnn tropical Santa fabric. I also learned how to do applique, which I've never done before. Poor K&A got my practice piece, I will have to bring them something nicer for Christmas. I got this free pattern here. You may need to sign up but they have some nice patterns-and they're free! I didn't do the patchwork, I just cut strips to the correct size as I wanted to use the Santa fabric.
I also made this wall hanging and pillow for my sister's birthday next week. I did much better on the applique on this wall hanging and I was quite pleased with my binding. It says "Welcome to the Trabin". They have a trailer up at a lake and they call it the trabin. The letters blend in too much but I think she will like it anyhow. Hmmm...I had the flash on but the pictures are dark. This panel is from "Cabin Fever", I love that line. This duo is packed up and on it's way to MN!
