Knocking off items on my To Do List

At the beginning of December, there were a few things I really wanted to get done before the end of the year.  In fact, there were 5 things on my To Do List:

1.  Quilt Hubble
2.  Make the December Schnibble - Morsel
3.  Turn Drop (the November Schnibble) into a pillow
4.  Make a baby quilt for my new little nephew
5.  Finish the nautical 241 tote bag I started ages ago.

Last week, I made the December Schnibble and mailed it to its recipient.  I also prepared a backing for Hubble and pin basted the whole thing.  Friday night, I got started on the quilting.

And yesterday afternoon, I finished number 3 on the list!


Yes - that is my Drop pillow!  I don't know why I was procrastinating doing this for so long.  It only took me about one hour to have the whole thing quilted and turned into a pillow cover.  For the back, I chose some Lecien fabric I won many moons ago from the Fat Quarter Shop.

Next up is my nautical 241 tote bag.  I finally bought the interfacing I needed so this should go together very fast.  And I ordered some fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop about a week ago for my nephew's quilt so that should come in the mail this week.  With any luck, the quilt will be finished by Christmas and... my To Do List will be done!

And how is your Christmas quilting/gift-making going?
