Ornaments and a baby quilt

 I embroidered these ornaments for the grandmothers this Christmas but I'm going to send them out before Thanksgiving since both our families put up their trees soon after the holiday. They were really easy to make; I even made one for myself so I can always remember how tiny their hands are right now. I used this method for finishing the backs; can't believe I didn't think of doing it that way before.

This may be one of my favorite quilts I've made. The two designers whose fabric I used (Heather Ross & Denyse Schmidt) are a couple of my favorites. I'm still trying to decide how to quilt it. It's 42" square so I can do it easily on my machine. Maybe stitching 1/4" off each seam? That always gives a really cool look.
