OK, I understand that this is not due until the very end of December, but quite frankly, with all the stuff happening right before New Years, I won't have another day to complete this work. So today or rather tonight, I decided to give up, and let it go. I over did it, stating that I would finish 6 BOM's that I was working on throughout the year, and that I would have all of them done. Not likely, but now I'm ready to concede. Why? Because I did other quilts at the last minute for Christmas gifts. So here is the link to the promise of what I would complete for the 2014 Finish Along with Katy from the "Thee Littlest Thistle".
I also entered a quilt for "A Lovely Year of Finishes from "Fiber of All Sorts" and "Bittersweet", two fantastic sites to follow. They are doing the same thing next year and I'm all in girls!!! Still have a list of quilts to complete including some of my BOMs from this past year. Also have 5 others that I followed but did not start, so I have plenty to do. I also have 5 other kits that I found when cleaning up my sewing room for my mom who visited. And my husband after discovering how much fabric I have has said "No more purchasing until I get some of this completed". He's right of course, but who wants to not own such beautiful material (sigh......). I need help!
Loved it so much I did a smaller version for a Contest for my Quilting Guild.
|Size is large, but squares are 2 1/2 inches, so in the end about 2 inches each.|
2) Flannel Quilt (had to finish it when my husband found out how much material I have. We have a rule, I can't buy more material until I finish some quilts. Well, I can't buy material now, until I get my stash down, because it's so much). Called "Friends are like Flowers". Sorry, bad picture. Cat loves trying out quilts especially if they're made of flannel.
3) A smaller quilt top that I've had cut out for 3 years, completed it today when I found it. But I'm adding buttons for the center tomorrow. Quilting all done. Did echo quilting of the flowers. It's about a yard wide.
4) A kit that I absolutely loved to make. Graphic Quilt Cross by Allie Health. It was two charm packs, one in black and one in white. Take a look at the quilting. Spent a Saturday doing it on my small sewing machine.
5) Pinky. It's all binded and finished, with a black backing, and I quilted in white thread. Looks amazing. My own design. The picture below is not binded, but it is done. See the quilting below as well.
