Lazy Sunday and Other Things

Ta Da!  The quilting and binding is completely finished on my Mom's Lazy Sunday that she made for her granddaughter (my youngest).  Can you tell by the photo that Kirsten loves her new quilt?  :)

It really is adorable!  Lazy Sunday is a Bonnie Hunter design that was published as a mystery quilt in several editions of Quiltmaker magazine in 2013.

I'm happy to be able to finish it in time to take with us to Tennessee over Thanksgiving so Mama can see her own handiwork.  I'm certain Kirsten won't let us forget to bring it back home to go back on her bed.

I'll also be taking these Christmas ornaments to give to my oldest daughter, son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren.  Since I made each of them a quilt over the past year, I kept scraps from each quilt to fill up a clear ornament as a remembrance for years to come.

I was also able to load up one of my Dad's quilt tops this week and finish quilting it.  Isn't it precious?

Some close ups of the actual quilting.....

Would you like to guess what I will be doing on the 11 hour drive to Tennessee?  Hand sewing binding to the back of this quilt.  :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I'm excited to see family I don't get to see often enough.

When I return, I plan to share another easy, extra nice gift idea with you.

Until then, keep sewing and stay warm!


  1. I absolutely love your ornament idea!

    1. Thanks Kathy! This idea has really been a big hit in the past when I give a baby quilt as a shower gift and include an ornament for Baby's First Christmas and the year written on the ornament with paint pens.

  2. Your parents quilts are wonderful and you did an awesome job of quilting them.
