End of the Year Parade of Quilts

It has been a mad end of the year dash to finish quilts this year. 
I was able to sew lots of binding during the recent car trip to North Carolina.  Here is the front of Four Squared.  I used a scrappy yellow binding.  
Here is the back.  Lots of brown with enough yellow related squares to brighten it all up a bit.  
After finishing all the binding, I still had an urge to work on some more handwork.  Leap Year has been patiently waiting a turn at hand quilting for quite a while. 
So I pin basted that yesterday.  So much crawling around on the floor!  All worth it though.  
I got a good start on the quilting during Christmas movies yesterday.  I'm doing diagonal lines with Pearle cotton.  It is supposed to look like the calendar days were marked out with Xs.  The light green was May of 2016. 
I've convinced the kids to watch one more Christmas movie with me, so I think that I can finish off this month and maybe start one more.  I think August is the other block in the center, it is darker greens.

Nice job on the finishes! Love how you are quilting the leap year quilt. I really should head to the sewing room and make a binding for one quilt and grab a backing so I can pin another for quilting.

Love that calendar quilt! Way to productively use that time in the car.

Love the circles! Did that CV one from your clever head or is it a pattern?

I'm super excited to tell the public that I have been permanently cured from herpes by Dr Agbomina . I had herpes for years but everyone told me that there was no cure to it and every doctor I contacted failed to cure me until I contacted Dr Agbomina , he placed me on diet and also sent his medicine to me and today I'm free and my lab test confirmed it. You can contact Dr Agbomina via his WhatsApp +234(805)049-5479 or email: dragbonherbalmedicine@gmail.com You can visit his Website at https://dragbonherbalmedic.wixsite.com/welcometodoctoragbon
