Poor Steve!!

Steve was a little under the weather this weekend, so what did I do?

I went out and got him Nyquil then left for a quilting weekend at Debbie's.

The upside was that I got a lot done. I pulled out an ArtBin with projects from a retreat from a year ago.

I already the center of the blue quilt together and half the trees made.

At the sew-in, I got the border on the blue quilt. It is the fabric from the 2010 Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop. The pattern is Frosted Window Panes from Six Halves Make a Whole Christmas.

The Christmas trees were made by stacking three fabrics and cutting out the tree and shuffling the order of the fabrics. I used a layer cake from Moda, Figgy Pudding.

I also used my left over blocks from my leaf quilt to make a table runner and table topper. I think the both turned out nice.

The challenge will be that they are for a fund raising bazaar this weekend. I need to get them quilted in the next couple of days.

Anyone who knows me, knows I don't quilt, so it should be interesting to see how these turn out.

Wish me luck! I'll need it.

Imagine what you could get done if I broke a leg! (The quilts look amazing)!
