Swirling Small

Finally Finished 

32"x32" Front
Flannel Back
Completing my big xPlus quilt was tough - and I think I needed a bit of relief before taking on anything, even this little quilt.  The top and back have been done since the Quilt Retreat a month ago but I just now finished up the quilting and binding tonight.

It's a gift that is hitching a ride for an in person delivery otherwise it might still be sitting.   The fabric (especially the birds and the binding) and small size will give away who I made it for - so if you're reading this, act surprised when you open the box!

WIP and waiting

Built out Backing for Rip Curl
My goal for December ALYoF and the 9th of 9 tops for my 2013 New Year Resolution is to complete Rip Curl. The back, also made at the Retreat has now been built out to a size that will work.  Procrastinating has its price because my can of 505 is near the end and I went to 3 LQS with no luck, all sold out - one more to check this morning when they open otherwise I wait for Amazon prime to deliver.
Linking up to Finish it Up Friday .  Amanda Jean's Scrap Vortex makes me want to start my own and she has the most amazing super swirl going on, check it out and all the fun links too.
