Christmas Eve Updates

Jack's Chain is finished!  I injured my finger sewing that binding on, but it will be wrapped and go under the tree for Tertia.
I just wrote on the back, which is a vintage sheet, instead of making a special label.
Barney the Purple Dinosaur is finished and the binding is machine stitched on.  Now I have to hand-stitch it to the back before giving it to Quarta.  "Make it work!" time.
Easy Street, step 5 is in progress but not very far along.  It is Christmas Eve, after all, and I have pies to bake and wrapping and binding to do.  I just came back from a run to Target and Kohls.  Yikes, lots to do!
I was playing with my units and came up with this.  Not bad, but it doesn't use all the parts.
Linking up to Easy Street linky party and Design Wall Monday.  And Merry Christmas!

Loved that you used a vintage sheet for the back of your quilt and wrote on it. One of my goals in 2013 is to LABEL everything I make this year. Loved that you just wrote on the back.....hey, it is labeled!!! Merry Christmas!!

It's fun seeing how everyone places the units into blocks. Merry Christmas.
