The Cookies are done, where is everybody???

Squish cookies, nothing says Christmas cookies like the annual batch of squish cookies!
The power was off most of Christmas day so we bundled up with piles of quilts and ate cookies!
Sugar vanilla cookies with chocolate fudge frosting inside. They looked better when Martha made them, but they do taste good!

Well, it's the day after Christmas and the cookies are finally done! Of course the roads are still shut down due to the drifting but the power is back on!!!

Sharon's Fuzzy Logic Quilt

A quilt for her son and daughter-in-law. I'm sure they will love this quilt!
The quilting pattern used was Retro Hearts. Sharon wanted the pattern stitched out as a large pattern. It has hearts and swirls. She chose Bright Clay for the thread.

Beautiful batiks make up this queen size quilt!

Lois's Great Grandbaby's Quilt

Lois has done a tremendous job on this quilt for her great grandson!
This center panel is all about airports and planes of all kinds. That baby will have many happy hours playing on this quilt!

Here you can see a car.

This quilt pattern has cars, bicycles, helicopters, sailboats, airplanes, all types of transportation.

Jane B's Snowmen Quilt

This quilt is a really nice Christmasy quilt, great quilt, Jane!
Here are some of the snowmen panels in the quilt, really cute!

The quilting pattern used was the Snow Bunnies pattern with snowmen and snowflakes. I used Copenhagen blue on this quilt.

Janice's Amish Angel Quilt

Janice brought this quilt to me and suggested an angel pattern and I used Bermuda Blue thread to really bring out the design on this Amish Quilt. Her daughter will be delighted to get this one!
This shows a close up of the angels and star pattern used on this quilt.

Linda's Twin Giraffe Quilts

Linda has made two of the same quilt but had me quilt one in green and one in pink! They both turned out really well and one is for her sister and one to keep. Great piecing and choice of colors! I wonder which one she will keep??? I need to suggest this idea of making two at a time and giving one to your sister, to my sister!
The green giraffe quilt was quilted with Seaweed colored thread and the giraffe pattern.

The pink giraffe quilt.
This shows more of the head of a giraffe.
This one was done with May Rose thread with the Giraffe pattern.

Minta's gift for her son! Great job!

Minta has made this wonderful wall hanging for her son's home. She chose the Christmas lights quilt pattern and I quilted it with white thread. I'm sure her son will cherish this each Christmas!
The Christmas gifts!

The gingerbread man with all his stitches!

Ruth's Christmas Quilts

Ruth has made 3 of these Christmas Cardinal panel quilts for gifts. She chose a holly wreath pattern for the quilting and the fox thread on 2 of the panels and mother goose thread on the other. The backings have a very busy cardinal fabric that looks so nice on these quilts. Great job, Ruth!
The brilliant cardinals!

Part of the Christmas Cardinals panel.

Cozy flannel always is a great gift!

Ruth has 2 flannel cozy north woods table toppers for gifts! She had me quilt the panels with the North Woods designs and the fox thread. Bears, trees, moose and a cabin are quilted on the fabric.

Great loon fabric! Ruth chose the Alpine green thread and the Inside Outside quilt pattern for her 2 Loon quilts.

Here is one of 2 Loon Quilt table toppers that Ruth has created for her gift list! Nice!
