November was a great quilting month! I was able to finish up three quilts to give as gifts, my niece's binding, a table runner gift, bags for my boys, and the tree skirt my husband wanted.
My tree skirt is a simple hexagon I made a lot like my spider web table toppers, just bigger and with binding. It measures about 36 inches side to side and 40 inches point to point. There isn't even a hole, because my cast iron tree stand sits on top.
I made it to the size specifications of my husband, because he wanted it to fit inside a simple circle of his LGB Train track. But wouldn't you know, he made the track HUGE this year.
This is definitely a case of "You can tell the men from the boys by the price of their toys." I also see a lot of "Like father, like son" going on at my house. ;)
The table runner I finished is for my sister S for Christmas.
I made to to match the quilt I gave her earlier. For some reason, every time I told her I was making her a quilt, she thought I meant table runner. So when she came to pick up her table runner, she was in complete shock. But she has told me that they love the quilt, and even her boys will cuddle up with it.
Helping my niece S cut, tie and bind her second quilt.
Summer Twist for my sister-in-law for Christmas.
Wild About You for my Cheetah for Christmas.
Things that Go for my Monkey for Christmas.
I am tired just thinking about everything I got done.
So now all of my important Christmas sewing is finished, and I have no deadlines. My house is even all decorated for Christmas. :) However, you can always use more quilty Christmas goodness, right? My A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for December is to make a new table topper for me. I want to use the wreath panel. I may even use the extra tree panel for something else this month. We'll see.
December is one of my favorite months every year. My husband and I purchase and wrap all the gifts early so we can relax and enjoy a wonderful family filled month. So don't be surprised if things are very quiet here at Quilt Kisses. I try to teach my boys that Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season. I hope that all of you have a wonderful Christmas season too!
P.S. To my dear sweet niece, R, who reads my blog: Don't tell your mom what her runner looks like. :D
P.P.S. I will be linking up with Let's Bee Social for my tree skirt and runner finish. :)
