one last 2009 finish!

Here's what I'm working on:

(Left handers hand stitch from left to right, by the way.)
About 2/3 of the way done. Does anyone else calculate the math/percentage finished while quilting or binding? I was teaching my 4th grader how to reduce fractions while I was quilting last night and today: "Ok, figure out what 16/24 reduces down to...." A little while later "what's 20/24?"

I have 7 more blocks around the perimeter to go.
The unfinished part is not in the picture. (Like the painting stuff? My husband has been working hard painting our tall-ceilinged living room, hall, stairs, and kitchen.)

Check back tomorrow for my 2009 recap/mosaic and a little bit of plans for the new year. Hoping to slow down, at least for a while.

That is awesome. Is it a Christmas quilt? From here it looks like some non-traditional Christmas type fabrics. Great quilting. Hope you get the binding done soon.

It's hilarious you mention left handed stitching because I was just thinking about that when I was doing the binding on my quilt tonight!!

Loving the quilt, and especially the blue thread on the dark fabric on the back! Very lovely!

I absolutely LOVE this! That fabric is adorable and the blue quilting is awesome!

I'm right handed, but I think I stitch left to right too. But I also ride my snowboard like I'm a lefty too....

LOVE blue on brown! And of course left handers stitch a different direction - I never thought of that!
