The first quilt I finished was this one I made for Mother's Day for my grandma. It had half the binding done, and was sitting on a box in my closet. Yep, I was that close to finishing it. I finally bit the bullet, took it downstairs, and didn't move my butt off the couch until that dang thing was finished!! I'm going to give it to her for Christmas, even though the label says Mother's Day 2011 on it, because Christmas is also her birthday (and I already bought her a Christmas present).

I also finished this mail center I designed a few months ago. I had the binding all attached, but just needed to stitch it down on back. It seriously probably only took 10 minutes to finish, but it's been sitting in my drawer for weeks waiting to be finished!
In addition to the 2 quilts I made for the Twilight movie, I was also in charge of making the quilt and the tree skirt for the donated tree for Colton's Angels. Every year we donate a tree and display to Festival of Trees. Proceeds from the sales of the tree displays go straight to Primary Children's Medical Center. Our theme this year was "L'il Boys Are Made Of". We used this darling fabric from Sarah Jane. It was so perfect for our theme! I made this quick and easy strip quilt.

So, if you've made it this far (haha! sorry it's so long!) you'll realize that I finished 7 things this month! HOLY COW!! SEVEN!!! I don't think I've finished that many in one month for a long time! Of course, December is going to be totally different. I'll be lucky if I get 1 thing done. But hey, 1 thing is better than nothing, right? :)
