2013 Finish-A-Long

I have decided to join the 2013 Finish-A-Long over at She Can Quilt

I am not going to repost photos of all my WIPS, you can few my last post for the photos. I will just relist.

1. Puzzles Boxes Twin Quilt - needs to be bound
2. King Swoon - needs to be bound
3. Flea Market Fancy Sweet Starlet - needs to be bound
4. Lone Starburst - needs to be bound
5. Granny Squares - I have two blocks hand quilted
6. Mama Said Sew Triangles - I am piecing the rows together right now - no photos to share though

I know alot of my WIPS only need to be bound, but that is the part that is that hardest for me. I have carpal tunnel and after working on the computer all day not the best thing for my wrist :(

Good luck to everyone!

2012 Year In Review

A look back at my finished quilts for 2012. 10 baby sized or larger quilts, 12 mini quilts, 2 pillowcases and 4 pillows. For how busy our life was this past year it was a huge accomplishment. But...I have a long list of WIPs that I did not finish. These are at the point where the binding needs to be sewn on.

1. My eldest son's twin quilt - I am about 1/2 way done with the binding.

2. King Swoon - also about 1/2 done with the binding.

3. Flea Market Fancy Sweet Starlet - I struggled with this quilt, ripping it out constantly while piecing. I decided to  pebble quilt the star and straight line the triangles. I am very happy with the quilting but will be glad when it is done and gone.

4. Lone Starburst - once I figured out how to paper piece these were so much fun to put together.

5. Granny Squares - I decided to hand quilt this one. I have 2 squares completed.. a long way to go yet.

6. I did start a new quilt yesterday with my Mama said sew fabric. Photos to come.

Happy New Year!
