Happy New Year and More Charity Quilts

It's new year's day and it's pretty quiet here. We had a lovely homemade steak and seafood dinner that we made after my husband's favorite team, the Wolverines. So yes, there was a little whining but it was a wonderful evening. We had cocktails and wine with dinner and enjoyed being home. 

The whole week has been a quiet one. We hosted Christmas Eve dinner and once all the gifts were opened and the dishes were done things settled down. That left me with lots of time to sew. In the last three days I quilted 3 charity quilts, made 3 additional quilt tops and today I finished sewing the binding on the ones I quilted. 

These are all 3-yard quilts made from patterns by Fabric Cafe.  

This pattern is called Sew Quick. The focus fabric is in the big blocks with nice bright color prints in the 4-patches.

This pattern is called Suite Times. I was supposed to use 1 yard of three different fabrics but I had more than a yard of the pink print and not much of the blue so I altered the cutting instructions a bit in order to make it work. 

This pattern is called Traditions. It's from Fabric Cafe's Christmas pattern book. I chose to make it out of everyday fabrics instead of Christmas colors.

Now it's time to go watch the Packers game. Here's hoping for a better outcome than last night's Michigan game!
