Christmas Quilt and Nautical quilt

I finished quilting a customer's quilt today.
It has CUTE Christmas fabrics. a simpler pinwheel blocks with sashing around each block.
I quilted large bubbles on the sashing and corner to corner curves on the pinwheels, then did a holly vine on the outer border. Hope she likes it :-)

here's the backing

I also finished putting binding on this nautical red/ white and blue quilt "smooth sailing", great for a litle baby boy.
So I'll keep it until I know someone who's having a boy- I know one right now, so we'll see :-)

just quilted a simple meandering all over it

I also finished step 4? of easy street. flying geese again, but different colors

here's the basket of progress so far, it'll be fun to see what it will look like

Here's my kids Thomas the train -train. That means I finished the Thomas the train TOP for Quilt it today, but still have to quilt it and make ONE more thing :-)

My husband took this picture of Sonja sleeping in my arms this morning.

This afternoon she fell asleep in Daddy's arms.
