Last Completed Project of 2009

I managed to complete the quilt I was making for my in-laws 2 days before we were getting together to celebrate Christmas. Which means I finished it on December 31! So that also makes it the last project I completed in 2009!It is only a lap sized quilt, but it took me forever. I started it in October - thinking I had plenty of time. Well, then my sewing machine decided to act up and needed to go in for repairs. Got it back right before Thanksgiving - but since I was hosting Thanksgiving, I couldn't do anything with it until after.

Then, I made about 50 of these letter plaques, that I gave away as gifts and listed in my Etsy store...But I persisted, and finally finished it with 2 days to spare!
Each of the 4 corners are quilted with this snowflake pattern I made. I had originally planned to do all the blocks this way, but time was not on my side!
I am happy with how it turned out, and I think they liked it!
