Little Critters

My latest infatuation has been sewing little critters.  So far just hippos and elephants.  These are so satisfying to make after making 4 giant quilts for Christmas, and 1 king size for my bed.  I needed something to make and finish.  These little guys fit the bill.  I am in love with all of them, and I think they each have a definite personality.  FatChickQuilts is where I am selling them.  I only have so much room to keep all these critters, but I can't stop making them!

December 12-12-12 Final Finish

Welcome to the Liz, Amy and Safieh's 12 finishes in 12 months in 2012, December finish. Hope everyone had a great Christmas.  We had a fantastic time in Katy, visiting Sarah and Derek (the newlyweds) and in Austin with the whole family.  Becky flew in from Portland and we were sad when she had to go back.

The grand finale of 12-12-12 finishes! I completed alot in December. It felt like I got nothing done, but in review, wow. The main focus of the month was Christmas...of course. I was committed to finishing Gigi and Henry's quilts for their "big kid" beds. Holy crap was that alot of work. They are both double bed size.

Chevron quilting.  Lots of quilting.

Henry's HSTs almost killed me, but it was worth it.  I even sacrificed most of my beloved gold grundge fabric for him. 

Gigi's went fast.  I love the Vintage Modern.  My Sister sent me photos!
