Cookies & Quilts

Last weekend's quilting ambitions got derailed by cookie production.  (For recipe see: 

But I'm starting this weekend out right - got 7 out of 12 rows quilted in one evening.  Completing this quilt in time for Santa to deliver it is looking more realistic now.  Hooray!
After much thought and a few false starts, I'm doing straight line quilting.  With a fleece back, this quilt just is too big and too heavy for anything more involved. 

Will continue to practice my FMQ skills on smaller quilts or projects that can be quilted in sections.  Gosh....that sounds a little like a New Year's resolution - doesn't it?   :)

A cool looking quilt. Nothing wrong with straight line stitching. We will get lots of practice with the free motion challenge in January.

Oooh - that's right! Will be looking forward to it. :)
