2012 was a good year for quilting; sitting in one place for months made it easy to finish three quilts, which were all well received by their owners at Christmastime, and a couple of longstanding finished tops were sent off to become full-blown quilts. I started a new quilting notebook (finally filled the old one) and made a list of projects to work on in 2013. I’m looking forward to next year and Judy’s new monthly pick four focus; that should give me the impetus to get a lot done!
The stars for the 30’s stars quilt are all done (someone reassure me that those dark blue centers aren’t too dark!) Now there are just 468 two inch squares to sew to their respective background squares and make up into fourpatches. I apparently really like the look of quilts with fourpatch blocks alternating with other blocks for a “sashing” effect, as this is the second in just a few months (Holly Berries being the first.)
But first, I’ll be off to the quilt store here in Turlock today; they’re having a deep discount inventory sale and I need to stock up on backing material. Don’t forget to check out what everyone else is up to at the end of the year, at Judy Laquidara’s Design Wall Monday. And may everyone have a happy and healthy New Year!
