two quilts

Two quilt tops are going off to be long-armed tomorrow!  I can't remember if I've shown this one all put together -- most of the blocks were Block Lotto winnings from way too long ago, and I added a few more blocks and some giant borders to make this big enough for a very tall young man who's (we hope) going to graduate from high school this spring. He is the son of friends and I've known him since before he was born...

Next up is something newer -- this was the Planet Patchwork Christmas Mystery from 2013. I posted about it earlier, but just got the borders on and a backing pieced together today.

For some reason I've been on a jigsaw puzzle kick lately -- this is probably the 5th one I've done since the holidays. There are a few more stacked up in the basement but I'm trying to space them out so that I get some sewing done, too.  If anyone local want to swap puzzles, you know where to find me!

Could someone tell me why Blogger has decided to rotate all my photos recently?  When they come off the camera, I rotate (if needed) and crop them before saving, and then blogger rotates them  another 90 degrees when I upload them, so I have to go back and edit again...

I like both of these quilts! I really love the scrappy trees.

Haha! I remember that tree swap. That was a long time ago. But I don't remember if any of those trees are mine. Awesome quilt, though.

Both of your quilts are truly lovely. Doesn't it feel good to get them off to the quilter? I love that puzzle too... it looks old and reminds me of the "good ole days."

Ooh, I like that puzzle. Too bad I'm not local. We just finished one tonight, as it happens - a collage of bits from The Beano (a comic)...
