The garland is appliqued, I'm just adding the embroidery embellishment. But there is lots of pine boughs, so it's slow going.  Plus I do not want to rush the quilting on this.  Going to wait until after the holidays when I can really focus and take my time on it.

Finished! Wound up being significantly larger than intended  86x86.  Guess it’s fine if you have a big lap.

Wow your quilt looks amazing!

Beautiful Quilt and Beautiful photo shoot.  I wish my son still lived in the Ft Collins area.. It's about the only "cold place on earth" that I could actually live, without whining to much.  I have some friends in Boulder that moved there from CA a couple of decades ago.

I'm just playing around and wasting time this chilly Sunday night.  Saw this on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl with my 3.5" strips.  The Pinterest one had a white background.  This is not a quilt in the making, it's just trying the concept to see how I might like it.  3.5" x 9" Half Hexies.  I need to cull all my strips... but didn't want to do "small" right now.   I just grabbed a couple of strips that kinda matched.  Used my 60 degree ruler to make the Hexies.

Wow, Mishii, that is absolutely spectacular!  Took a lot of time and patience to create that beauty but it was well worth it.

Thank you.That was a UFO top for years. I am on a mission to get thru as many of my UFO tops as I can.

I am starting on what might be a killer UFO for me ... never really had one and the idea is a bit scary but I'm bored with what I have been doing so I'm going to try this "Kresge Kid's Life" project and see where it takes me.  ("Kresge Kid"  is mentioned in the "Only One" thread.)

After spending a couple of days wandering through Quilter's Cache and the Barbara Brackman book of pieced quilt blocks I have some ideas to start working with.

First block created is one I'm calling "Baby Judy Arrives in Lucas County Hospital".  Turns out I am not very good at making HSTs (even with Thangles) but I since I was born prematurely, quite undersized with one eye turned in and allergic to the orange juice they tried to feed me I guess it is all right if the block is a little bit whopper-jawed. stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye 

(I cheated and found a way to make an Ohio Star block with HSTs in the Brackman book.)
