Here are two little quiltlets that I pieced last fall. Over the past couple of days, I have quilted them on my DSM and sewed the bindings on - two projects finished, and two off my list of UFO's! I learned a few things with these, I prefer a cotton batting on these little quilts over a polyester, the wonky stars needs more contrast, and I learned how to do a ladder stitch to sew down the binding. Both of these quiltlets came about from the generosity of others. Marcie at Patchalot More offered the Christmas Tree pattern a couple of years ago, and I used The Happy Zombie's Jingle Jolly pattern as a starting point for the wonky star quiltlet. Be sure to stop by Judy L.'s for more blogland inspiration on Design Wall Monday.

I have shown this project when it was still a work in progress, but here it is as a completed flimsy. The pattern is Picket Fences by Judy Martin. This flimsy came from leftover pieces from my Carolina Christmas flimsy and my seemingly never ending supply of Christmas fabrics. It is a much brighter, richer red than the picture shows.

Just put the borders on this one this week. I started this string quilt with purple centers several years ago, with the intention of working on it slowly, as scraps accumulated. The border fabric has been in my stash for a while, it has a lovely feel to it. I am trying to free up some project boxes for 2012!

Only one seam away from another flimsy! This is a mystery quilt offered by Leslie at The Crafty Unicorn Quilting. Leslie did a great job designing and presenting this mystery to keep us guessing on the final outcome. I love the way it ended up in columns. Check out Judy L's design wall Monday post for tons of inspiration.
