*I've had this post loaded for a while.
I finished the top for my parents' Christmas present quilt in March. Yes, March of 2010. I had my friend Pam do the quilting. Pam does amazing work. Very slow work, though, and I didn't get the finished quilt (except for the binding) until the Friday after Thanksgiving. Also 2010. It's gorgeous, though! I think Pam kept it all that time to show it off to the ladies who attended retreats at her home. I'm all about showing off, so that's fine with me.
We had Jen and Ben for Christmas this year and I knew I wanted to make a quilt, but didn't know what kind. Back in September or October, my Dad's aunt offered to let me take home two lone star tops (unfinished) that my great great grandmother had made. She and my great grandmother made lone stars for all of their children and grandchildren. It was their "thing." So now it's my thing. Here is the lone star I made for Jen and Ben.
I'm so glad to finally be able to show off these Christmas gifts! Go to Amy's today to see what everyone else did. :)
