Roman Shades

These are the curtains I have been working on forever! I was afraid to mess them up, so I just never worked on them. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out. They are definitely not perfect, this was my first attempt on curtains, and I am not very good with using pins, I think they are a waste of time, so my curtains don't lay very flat They look really boring right now with plain white walls, but eventually I am going to paint the walls a light blue and put black and white photos all over. Around the room I am going to accent in red. Who knows when I will actually get to the point of decorating.

Christmas Break Quilts that just got Finished from the Quilter

Crazy Squares (Buggy Barn)
This quilt is for my mom, but for Christmas in 2007. I had all of the squares cut out and one sewn together, and told her it would be coming later. I never worked on it during the year, so a couple weeks before Christmas in 2008 I started working on it. Hopefully I can have it to her all finished by her birthday this year. I am so bad with giving presents on time, I have good intentions. I made two of these, this is the first one to be quilted, the first one is my moms and the second one will be mine. I love the quilting on all of these, I can't stop looking at them! If any of you want the ladies name, I will give it to you. She is amazing!

Crazy Hearts (Buggy Barn)
This quilt is for my Step Mom, I gave her the top part for Christmas. I started this quilt less than a week before Christmas. I stayed up all night for that week, but it was well worth it. I was able to listen to all of the Women's Conference, it was great, I learned a ton! I love the quilting on this one!

I got the material for this quilt when I graduated from High School, so I have been working on this quilt for like 5 years. I didn't really like it when I was working on it, so I just put it aside. I finished the top a couple of years ago and then just never took it to the quilter. I love the quilting job on this, the lady did an amazing job. I still need to do the bindings on these quilts, but I hate that part, so we will see how long it takes to finish it all of the way.
