Whirling Stars is a You Tube pattern from the Missouri Quilt Company. I actually finished the binding on it a couple of months ago, but never shared the finish.
Nines and Vines, an oldie from AP&Q, finally got it's binding done this week. Another UFO finish. I love this quilt. Makes me wonder why it took so long to finish it. The fabrics in the nine patch blocks are early CW reproduction fabrics and it is so much fun to look at them. Wish there were still a few of them in the stash now.
Another UFO finish .......hopefully the last of the pieced LQs SS Samplers. I learned so much about machine piecing from the several years of participating in this program.
Ashley with Snowmen A-Z. She loved it. Actually, I did too, even though it was a push to get it done. She has the top border folded down so that I could see her face.
Bad photo, but this is the label and the backing fabric for Snowmen.
My favorite quilting activities this year were collecting materials for and stitching these dog beds for a local rescue group..........how can you not love these sweet babies????? And, of course, our QOVs that I shared in an earlier post. The Sew Crazies rock!!! Dog photos were lifted from Sandy's FB page.
I still have a couple of quilts to bind, but it will be nice to have a couple of UFO finishes to start the NY. And I am working on my Lucy blocks. Got a two more finished and put the background around one of them. I love the way the background changes the blocks and makes the designs pop. I will share those in a day or so.
Have some thoughts about the NY and what I would like to accomplish. I always want to be more focused. But mainly, I just want to love doing what I do. That seems more important than how many things I finish at this point in my life. Funny how your perspective can change when someone you love is fighting for the privilege of life itself.
Hobbies that lend to doing something greater in the scheme of things.
