Ok, I finally decided what to work on next!  My mother-in-law gave my husband some pins and buttons from her father’s Marine Corp uniform at Xmas.  We were thinking shadow box for them, but then I thought “I can make a wallhanging quilt with pictures and then we can attach all the pins and buttons.”  Well, the quilt top is now done and I’m getting ready to start pinning and quilting it.  If I’m lucky I’ll get it quilted today since it’s not that big and be able to do the binding later tonight!  Pics will come when it’s finished!

It’s done!  I was actually able to work on some of it yesterday while my mom worked on finishing her placemats (Xmas present in 2007 that never got finished).  I just had to finish attaching the rows this morning.  Some spots don’t look too good, but ya know what?  It doesn’t matter to me.  It’s not going to be entered in a show and it’s meant to be used – so who cares if some of the seams don’t match?  Now to decide what to work on next!
