I am almost caught up on the Front Porch SAL. All I have left on the bicycle block is to stitch down some of the bike parts. And I would have gotten those finished but, remember my name is Dory! I got distracted with new projects. Quilts for Christmas gifts! I am little late starting them, but I think I can get them done if sew, sew, sew. More about those after the photos of my Front Porch progress.
I will be linking up with Lori of Humble Quilts and the other ladies HERE.

I completed the birdhouse block and the side blocks that go with it, except for one. I have not decided what I want to do for it, maybe a bird or another pinwheel block.
|Close up of the birdhouse, I really like this one.|
Below are all the blocks together. I am not 100% sure about the blue and orange pinwheel blocks I have used, may rethink those.
|Sorry for the poor photo, but I have no place to lay them and my "design wall" is too small.|
Now for the Christmas gift quilts. The first on is a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Smokey Mountain Stars. You can find the free pattern HERE. I have had the top done for a long time and I finally got it quilted last week and I am stitching down the binding now. I am sending this one to my brother, he recently purchased a new home so this will be a House Warming/Christmas gift combined.

|I just did a simple loopy meader.|
I am planning on two quilts for grandkids. I have one top done for a granddaughter whose favorite color is black. I am just waiting for the backing fabric to arrive and hopefully I can get it quilted quickly. I am still working on the second top for a grandson. My original plan is not working out, but I am hopeful I can figure something out in the next couple of days and get his top finished soon.

This is the backing fabric I ordered, I love all the words and sayings on it.
Happy Quilting, Rebecca
