Christmas Quilt Finished and Dress A Girl



So this throw quilt is finished. I actually completed it a couple of weeks ago, but we seemed to have rain for two weeks straight so it was this past weekend before I could get a pic in good morning light.
The back of the quilt is a green hexagon print. This is finish number 1 for the Finish Along with Adrienne at On The Windy Side. (Button in sidebar.) My original FAL post is here.

I quilted it simply with straight vertical lines in the background, outline quilting for the motifs  - horizontal lines in the tree.


And this little dress is for the charity Dress A Girl Around The World - (a program of Hope for Women International). This is a great program that provides dresses for girls. It is a very simple pattern to make and for such a good cause. If you'd like to get involved just click on the link above and search for an ambassador in your state.

The fabric in this dress is the fabric I used for the back of the quilt - a wonderful way to put the leftovers to good use!

What have you been working on?
