Not going to be a cheapskate this year; so this is my progress on project x-MASS blankets:

Front and back, my cat Maya is underneath  Roll Eyes



Spontaneous top pattern from 4 random fabrics I had




Baby blanket for my Chiropractor's new son or daughter, she is finding out when she has it I guess.. So I went ahead and planned colors accordingly, for an Autumn Birth, either way.


Strange scrap blanket



That's mostly what I have completed so far! I plan on having 11 finished by christmas eve..  Undecided
Any comments or critiques are highly welcomed... I started hand-sewing in June, and in August started using a (early 90's) White sewing machine. Finally in October I bought myself a lovely Brother machine and now I'm sewing like the wind  Cheesy

Your quilts are lovely. I especially like the baby blanket, such pretty colors. Congratulations on your new machine. Clearly it was a good investment.

Wow. And here I am thinking that I was being ambitious trying to make three full size quilts by Christmas. Way to go! You can do it!

I absolutely adore that bluish/purple/black/white looking one..love it. Isn't sewing addicting once u get a machine? I got mine last year for christmas and can't even count all the projects I've done on it.  Grin
