Quilt for Christmas

I finished this quilt that I'm giving to my mother-in-law for Christmas. It's so hard to buy for your parents when they have most everything they need -- in my price range that is. My MIL made a comment a while ago that she didn't have a quilt from me. I found this kit at American Quilting in Orem and fell in love with it. I was going to keep it for myself -- but once it was made in noticed how it matches her family room and sun room perfectly.

I've got another one started from the same pattern with some fabrics from my stash and some I just bought to go with them. I really should be working on a my son's wedding quilt -- just got tired of it for a bit. I have a stack of quilts that are waiting to be machine quilted too -- but I'm just tired at night after work and it's dark outside and so I don't want to do anything. I have been trying to be better about cooking dinner. Those who know me understand that -- I really don't like to cook! (It's a good thing I married someone who does). It really isn't so bad to put chicken, baked potatoes or roasted veges in the oven that the weather is cooler.
