Finish Friday ~ sort of

I know this post is supposed to be all about finishes, but do partial finishes count?

I did finish the three City Sampler blocks scheduled for this week at Sew Sweetness:

I finished piecing  Christmas tree skirt #1 ~ I know I said no more peeks, but here's a little one:

I ordered the fabric for the binding ~ so I just need to figure out what to do with the back.

Last but not least ~ I cut into the Winter's Lane layer cake for Christmas tree skirt #2 and finished sorting all the 5" squares into a layout that I can live with. (I consider that a "sort-of" finish!)  I'm thinking of doing a disappearing 9-patch for this one.  I've never done one before, but I love the pattern and it looks pretty straight-forward, so I think I can handle it!

Here's a first peek at that one (please excuse the yellow and blue bedspread ~ I really need to put up a design wall!):

So that's it for this week ~ I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for finish it up Friday.  I'm totally jealous of her handmade scrap baskets ~ maybe once Christmas is over ...  :)

    1. Thanks ~ I love your little Wee Village pillow ~ so cute!

    1. sharpie ~ I know what you mean ~ some weeks they just kind of get buried underneath all the other stuff and I usually have to play catch-up!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
