More OPAM finishes for February

Here are a couple more finishes.  YAY! I'm totally on a roll, yeah?
This is a cute little quilt I threw together for my cousin's new baby boy.  I love the Cat in the Hat fabrics.  I backed it using a yellow minkee, making it extra soft for baby, and quilted it with a large meander in yellow thread.  I used leftover pieces from the fat quarters to make the binding.  It turned out so super cute, and I'm glad I finally got it finished (it only took me a few months! haha)

This is the Fat Quarterly Quilt Along quilt from last fall.  Yeah, it's finally done.  I used Mary Englebreit's Christmas fabric from 2009, called The Caroler.  I was hoping to finish it in time for Christmas last year, but I guess we'll just have to use it this year instead.  I backed it with black minkee, making it extra soft and snugly for those cold winter nights on the couch watching TV/movies, and quilted it with a meander in black thread.  I bought some polka dot fabric that matched for the binding.  

And I'm not sure if this really counts or not, probably not, but I refreshed my wreath for my front door.  I made it about 2 years ago, when we first moved into our apartment.  After 2 years out in the sun, snow, rain, wind, etc, it was looking very faded and sad.  I went to Walmart, bought $9 worth of silk flowers, and stuffed the wreath full.  I really like how bright and colorful it is now.  Hopefully I'll be able to get at least another 2 years out of it before I have to start completely over.

I love all 3 of them. But I think Dr. Suess is my fave!
