Here are two cushions I made a few days ago. A gift for an admirer of bears and foxes. They measure 14" x 20". I made the black piping for the edges. It adds a lovely finishing touch.
A cute Dear Stella fabric on the back
A tree skirt for my brother and his wife. I used a 10 degree wedge ruler to cut the 36 wedges from 24" strip sets and then sewed them together to make a circle. easy peasy. Then I quilted in the ditch (not my fave), added binding and done. A fun, quick project. I have requests for two more for next year.
A stocking for a baby's first Christmas.
and the back...
And I made a tuffet! I used some special batiks that my sister brought me from Malaysia several years ago. I won't say it was easy but I am happy with the result. I plan on making another one.

My plan for 2018 is to get a few of my older pieced tops quilted, but I said that was on the top of my 2017 list and it did not happen so I am only a little bit hopeful.
Merry Christmas to you and yours and all my best in 2018. 🎄
