I finally got the binding sewn on my "Over the River and Through the Woods to Grandmother's House we Go" quilt! I hung it on the wall and should have taken a picture of it before doing that because it was kind of hard to get the right angle and lighting from where it hangs. I think we used to sing that song around Thanksgiving time in grade school.

The backing fabric was given to me by a friend.
Another Christmas quilt that I will keep and this patchwork fabric was also given to me by the same friend. All I did was back it with some flannel that I had on hand with no batting and I quilted it with straight lines on the diagonal. I really like this fabric, which is already pieced together and sold by the yard.
My sister has a snowman like this and I had been wanting to make one from an old bed spread.
This is the program from the Houston International Quilt Show that I got when they sent my quilt back to me. My quilt, A Civil War Remembered, is listed on page 39 under Texas Guild's Award-winning Traditional Quilts 2014.
Tomorrow will be a baking and cooking day and on Thanksgiving we will be going to DS#1/DIL's home for our Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, our DGD has to work on Thanksgiving, as the stores are all open now on Thanksgiving. I liked it better when stores were closed. :-) And our DGS won't be coming home from college for Thanksgiving, but we'll see him at Christmas.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my quilting and blogging friends!
