Welcome 2013!!!

Well, I haven't posted in forever, but I recently finished a new quilt, and that has inspired me, so hopefully I'll be doing much more sewing this year! I made a quilt for my husband for Christmas, and finished it just in the nick of time!

Of course, our puppy Figgy had to get in the shot too! I followed AmandaJean/Crazymomquilts

And here is a close up shot: Miles Quilt - 2
I used a brown flannel for the backing and used left over scraps to piece the binding. I cut waaaaaayyy to many strips for the binding, so I am trying to find a strip quilt project to use them for!! And then after Christmas, I was still in a sewing mood, so I started to make some wonky log cabin blocks for a new quilted tree skirt.
