Attended a three day class with Kaye England this weekend at Linda Z's along with my Aunt Bonnie . Learned a lot and got 9 squares done.

Here is a picture of my completed squares and also a picture of myself with Bonnie and Kaye.

Lucia Beth's Christmas Tumblers

When I inherited my mother's fabric stash she had a plastic tub full of Christmas fabrics - no surprise as Christmas was a very important event for my mother every year.

I saw a quilt design made with the Tumbler AcuQuilt die that my aunt had done and decided that would be a good way to use up some of the Christmas fabrics.  So I decided to make a quilt for each of my kids and myself using the Tumbler design. 

Quilt #1 - went to Stefanie and Kyle Anderson

Quilt #2 - went to Kevin and Stephanie Reeve

Quilt #3 - I kept for my husband Ron and myself

I put the same label on each of the quilts and also embellished the labels with some buttons that I had found in my Mom's craft items.

We went out to dinner last night for my birthday and I gave our kids the quilts at the end of the dinner. Below is a picture of me (in the middle) with our daughter Stefanie and son Kevin receiving their quilts.

I know it is pretty early - but Merry Christmas everyone!!! - Remember Jesus is the reason for the season.

PS:  I am posting this as my December 2012 UFO finish

UFO #4A - Finished and Delivered

I added this to my UFO list after posting it and before I understood how the numbers are picked.
This quilt was made for my husbands nephew,Brian. The pattern is called Emma's Star but I did not include any of the stars in my quilt.
I actually mis-read the pattern and made 83 blocks which was for a queen size quilt when I only needed 50 for the twin. Will use the remaining blocks to make a crib size quilt.

Not sure which picture I like so put in both.

Post script 11-30-2012:  As I spent last week in the hospital I have not done much sewing lately.  Therefore, decided to use this finish for my November, 2012 UFO item.
