The first order of the day was to baste and quilt the flannel baby quilt I posted about here. T is taking off on Saturday for a three week visit to see his family, so if I can get this quilt done before he leaves, he can take both of the baby quilts with and I won't have to ship them at Christmas time. His mother will take care of the wrapping for me.
For the quilting, I just did my wavy line grid pattern using King Tut in the Tiny Tuts color on both the front the back. I really like how it turned out. Here is the quilted, but untrimmed quilt:

The box from my sister didn't arrive until yesterday, so I couldn't do anything with the binding on Saturday, but the good news is that there was a half yard of the lavender fabric in the box, so plenty for the binding. I got it pressed last night and will hopefully make and attach the binding today.
After I got the baby quilt quilted, I spent the rest of the day basting some other small quilts. First up was this piece, which wasn't even supposed to become a quilt. I made up this piece just to test out and practice the buttonhole stitch on my machine, but I ended up liking it so well that I found a border fabric in my stash and added it to make this little quilt top. The binding will be the same fuchsia fabric as the inner border.
This next piece isn't really a quilt, more like a trivet. I had an orphan block from that bargello quilt I posted about awhile back. I added some borders and here's what I've got now:
And finally, I also got this small quilt basted and ready for quilting. This quilt is from my beginning quilting class in, ahem, 2001. Nothing like procrastinating a bit! The piecing leaves something to be desired, but I love it anyway, mainly because of the color combination. Purple and yellow rock, in my opinion. LOL
