Finish it Up Friday

This week has been just about as bad as last week for lack of sewing time. I do have a finish for Finish it Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. I spent most of the week cleaning up from the past week, reorganizing, and doing laundry. I love being gone, but it's a lot of work to get everything back in shape. I was determined to get this Christmas quilt done before the holiday. I fixed the bottom, quilted it a little bit and then put the binding on it.

It's not perfect, but is unique. The top made by Grandma Elaine, the backing made by mom and I and the final quilt finished by me.
While I was shop hopping last weekend I picked up a new hexie ruler, some pink glue refills, Aurifil thread, and a stain remover.
A couple weeks ago Mikaela helped me quilt a wall hanging for their bedroom. She was so excited to help, so I took her picture. I just now am getting them on to the computer.

She was so proud of helping mom with the quilting.

She held the left side while I guided her with the right. I'll have to find more projects that she can help on. Since this was a wall hanging it didn't really matter that the loops were wonky. She had a great time helping me.
