beginning, middle , and end.

I am in the middle of working on my 'Chubby Chicks' quilt. I put a few beaks on today and went and picked out floss for there little legs to embroider. I love how they are turning out.



Here is the beginning of a new quilt. I won't start it until probably January. I asked my mom this weekend what she likes in colors and quilts. She said every color. And dots and strips. So I am going to start my mom a quilt soon. I got these fabrics today at the shop.



And this is the end of a quilt, a finished one. Yeah. This is my mother-in-laws' Christmas gift. I table topper for her new table in her dining room. I love the Amy Butler fabrics.

Oh, yes! The chicks are just TOOO cute! You've set them so nicely from each print. I love the bright colors, dots & stripes for your mom's quilt and the table topper is beautiful. The greens & blues are my favorite color palettes from the Amy Butler.

Congratulations on all you've accomplished, all you've planned and have well underway. It's a wonderful feeling. Live it!

Love it! What color of thread did you use to blanket stitch your chicks? I haven't decided what to use on mine yet!
