Knocking out the projects, one by one!

I have really been trying to get all my projects done so I can of course start new ones.

I finally got Kristin's quilt done, this was supposed to be a Christmas presents but turned out to be more like a Valentine's gift.
I figured since it was taking me so long to get it done, I would surprise her with a wonderful Minkee backing.
Here is a view of the front of the quilt.

Here you can see the quilting design and the wonderful Minkee.

Here is a shot of the front with a piece of the back flapped over.

Kristin with her new quilt, she wasn't thrilled that I made her pose in the yarn shop.

I also mentioned  in my previous post that I was making some fun pillows to match my new bed quilt. I have two out of the three made and when I get the 3rd made I will post them along with my new bed quilt.
I have been busy learning a new knitting pattern, I won't say how many time I had to run to the knit store for help, but let just say after many attempts I finally got the rhythm of this pattern and I am half way through my daughters scarf.
Hopefully I will be showing you my other projects in a day or two.
