December UFO Finishes!

Wow!  I can't believe we are this close to the end of December!  It's been a hectic, yet wonderful month with the holidays to celebrate, family all around, and our DDs college graduation.  Even so, I did squeeze in a bit of time to finish up my December UFOs (and I already admitted that I was going a bit easy on myself this time around)!
This is "Leap of Faith."  The top was completely constructed when I began this month and it's a pretty small wall hanging, so all that was required were small pieces of batting, backing and sleeve made from the cut off fabric from "Next Door Neighbor."  Once quilted (with a small meander), I trimmed the corners and made this bias binding to attach.  The label was already made, with a cute little star stitch on muslin, and attached with the sleeve and binding.
"Next Door Neighbor" has been on my bucket list for a while now, and I'm glad it's finally finished!  What's not to like about a pink/brown color combo, tiny piecing of flying geese, and an adorable flying geese pieced border???  LOVE!  I also began this month with a completed top, binding and label (muslin with a leaf deco stitch border), so really all I had left to do was quilt (a feather panto) and add the sleeve, label and binding!  Can you tell I'm crazy for these toile-like prints lately???
Check out this blog post if you would like to read more about the goals I set for this month in regards to this project.  Otherwise, today, I'm linking up with both A Lovely Year of Finishes, & 52 Quilts!

Nicely done, Heather! I especially like the pink and brown one, but the toiles look great in both of them. Thanks for not having an embedded comment box. This way, I got to comment!
