Hexie Flower, 12 Inch Mini Swap, Cristmas Through the Year and Finishes

It's been so long since I posted but I know if I made a hexie I'd post...too bad work gets in the way of quilting.

I also participated in Cheryll's 12 inch Mini Quilt Club. Click on the link to join in the fun - the sign up for December - Christmas Mini is going on now.
The October Mini was Spring and I received the beautiful Mini from Tracee.  Hexies and bird favorites!  Thanks Tracee, I love it!
My October/Spring Mini went to Lyn.

As you can see my daughter decorated for Halloween.  It looks great!  I finished 2 projects to help with the decorating.  The first was started years ago and was suppose to be a Lap Quilt but I made it for the front door (remember I said that's where I sewed....the ironing board makes it hard to open the door).

I also made the table runner Itsy Bitsy Halloween from the book My Runners by Disa Designs.  It's a little longer than the pie safe it's on.
And now to Christmas.  I finished these ornaments that must have been started 10 years or so ago.  There's still more to complete but it's a nice start. Thanks to Christmas Through The Year, Darlene and Cheryl, I have some Christmas presents made.
Madelyn, my 4th grandniece was born in September and I made her this jelly roll race quilt.  I just love the colors.  Dan quilted swirls on it in a variegated bright green - it looks great, thanks Dan.
And last but not least, I finished my Hay Bale Quilt, pattern by Edyta Sitar.  This quilt is for me and I'm going to snuggle under it this winter when relaxing and reading.  I love the fabrics, a mixture of prints and batiks.  Again, Dan did a beautiful job quilting!  Look at the detail in each of the blocks. Thanks Dan! (I only quilt my small projects).
