The last finishes for 2011

Only a few days left of 2011 - where did the days, weeks and months go?!
Before Christmas I had a look into my latest finished projects and hidden under everything else, I re-discovered this quilt! I finished it 2-3 months ago, washed and air dried it, was going to take photos.... and... totally forgotten about it!

My 'Sun and Earth' quilt! :)  

It measures 64 x 87 inches / 162 x 220 cm, which if not mistaken is a twin size quilt?
I have used scraps from white/cream, yellow, green and brown.

I had enough scraps for the backing too; green, brown and yellow.

As I promised in my previous post, here are some more finishes and those will be the last finishes this year. I still have to hand stitch the binding on the Polar Bear quilt, but.... not very tempting in the heat... I shall see, perhaps a little bit can be done early mornings...
Anyway... I promised you no more snowmen, but I didn't promise you no more gingerbread people - did I?! :)
Here I've used Diane Knott's for Clothworks 'Peppermint Cottage' fabric line. Click here to see Diane Knott's website.
Click here to see other projects I made using the same fabrics.  
The table runner was done awhile ago, but had to wait for quilting thread.

...and this is what I got out of the leftovers...
a square table topper, where I have pieced together 3 inch squares.

Before Christmas I pulled out some Debbie Mumm fabrics from the cabinet and here's a small table runner I made for a book shelf.
EEK! I didn't remember there are snowmen on those fabrics too! :)

Speaking of Debbie Mumm fabrics....
As usual when I love the fabrics, I often get carried away and into a craze! Yes, I got the Debbie Mumm craze, which ended with 13 (!!!) UFO's! No, I won't call them UFO's - they are too new for that. I've put them away until I get the backing fabrics from the US. I have a lot of stash, but never, never, never enough for backing! SIGH! :)

Two candle mats, table mats, or an over sized mug rug...

... I finished before Christmas.
The fabrics are from 'Santa Goes to North Pole' by Debbie Mumm.
