A Little Porch Time Quilt

It was probably a little ambitious to think I could get half of my border done in the month of December, but I did make progress!
Here are my pieces and parts prepped and waiting to be appliqued. For some reason one of my butterflies has two different yellow wings....
Here is one corner of my quilt. I got the inner dark border applied and the outer green AND I got the vine appliqued on two sides. Hmm, maybe I made more progress than I thought.
My plan is to stay focused on this until it is done! The month of January, for sure!!

I couldn't resist one more Christmas photo.  My mom was sick on Christmas day so we had her over on the 27th to open her gifts. It was just 5 of us and really was so much better for her. I had my brother snap a photo of Cory & I in front of our tree as I had forgotten to on Christmas day. I like this photo so much as it was so relaxed and casual.
See the snowflake cut outs on the window? I won those from Tim. (there were more on my kitchen window) He is so talented! Click on his name to check out his blog.

All right Porch Quilt ladies. Share what you have , even if it is pieces.

  14. Great picture of you two. Those relaxed causual photos are always the best.
    Happy New Year.

  15. Casual photos are the best. The smiles are genuine, and they show who we truly are. Great picture of you and Cory.
    I'm ending 2012 by quilting a little UFO that I thought was already done. My favorite quilt-along so far (following your lead) was Midnight Stars. I won't be done before midnight, but I'll start 2013 with a finish and a big smile on my face.
    Thanks for all the inspiration and blogger friendship through the year.

  16. Sorry you Mom wasn't well but glad you got to celebrate later. The picture of you and your son in front of the tree is so sweet. I'm sure Corey would not like to know we think he is "sweet." Sorry Corey.
