Fun Finds and a Finish

While visiting our daughter Julie we did a little thrift store shopping.  Actually, we did a lot of thrift store shopping.  There is a very unique shop in a town very close to their home that is always fun to spend some time at.  I head to the sewing section first.  This is what I found this time. 

Two fat quarters, a yard and a half of yellow fabric, some fun buttons and a stack of charm squares. There are about 120 charm squares.  The squares are from different fabric lines but work well together.  They will make a great scrappy quilt top.  The squares were all in a baggies marked 3 dollars.  I snapped it right up.

The picture below is of a quilt I made and the important thing about this is that it is finally complete.  
I completed the binding!  It has been quilted a while now but had no binding, I have had six quilts quilted in the past year or so and this is the first to have binding on it.  I hope this means I will keep working and get them all done!

This "Pandora's Box" quilt made from a French General jelly roll is all wrapped and ready for a special person's Christmas gift.

Merry Christmas ?  I can't tell who it is for quite yet.
