Well, I guess the weekly thing is just not going to happen! I wish it would but it just isn't. I guess I have to be satisfied with every two weeks or so!

I have two 'finishes' so far this year though! The first was finishing the border on a round robin top. I will be taking that to Idaho for the reveal in about a month.

On January 6th we had our 5th and final reveal at my neighbor's house in our quilt exchange. Luckily, she emailed a reminder on the first or I wouldn't have had this one done for Cindy (on the right).
Nadine (left) made this one for Mary (right). Some of the black and whites were the same ones she used in this one for me.
Mary made this huge one for me! It really isn't that orange in real life. As you can see, my grandson took part in the festivities.
Nadine (left) got this lovely quilt from Cindy (right). 
A great pattern and I love this focus fabric!
Linnea (right) created this Bargello Beauty for Sally (left). When she had the quilt loaded on her machine she discovered a mistake and had to take it off and fix it before quilting this. 

Sally ran into problems while quilting Linnea's so she just got to see it partially done. I will post pictures as soon as I get to see it finished.

My little Grandson had fun playing with his mommy - he had just pulled her glasses off in this picture.
Here are a couple of parting shots of my little buddy. The first is taking a short nap in Grammy's sewing room and the second is playing with my tote bag under the ironing board. He has started crawling so I will have to either clean up the sewing room or keep a close eye on him when he is helping. Which do you think is more likely?

Don't you think you should bring ALL your grandchildren when you come out;)

That little one is a cutie!

While I would love to bring the little one along, he is still pretty attached to his momma and she has to stay home and work. Maybe our next trip.

I think your Denim quilt pattern is perfect!! I have saved my family's denim for over 30 years so that one day I could make a denim quilt. I never found a pattern I liked enough to inspire me to get it made. I am now retired so pulled out my denim and my laptop to do a search for one to make....and yours came up...perfect! I love it...and am now so inspired! I would really appreciate a copy of the quilt email address is
Thank you so much for all of your work and your sharing!!
