Another Small Quilt Finished

I finally finished this small quilt. Like I mentioned before, it's not done in colors I normally use together. When I was pulling fabrics out for another project, the red fabric happened to land on some black and I loved the effect so I just had to make a red and black a little yellow. The red fabric looks much nicer in person. It has some sparkle from metalic paint that you can't see in the photo. I free motion stitched the leaf - something I don't like doing. I need to get better at it so I just made myself do it. I usually try to find ways around having to do free motion quilting on my quilts but sometimes I just can't get the effects and quilting patterns I want without free motion. So I have alot of quilts waiting to be quilted. Need to finish them!!

The weather has gotten much colder here in NH. Time to bundle up even indoors. I get much colder now since the pancreatitis. May have something to do with losing 80 pounds in 4 1/2 months. Not the way to go about losing weight!!! Before, I was always hot now I get cold easily. Guess I will be spending alot of time standing in front of the pellet stove!!
