Review of 2012

It's the beginning of the year, and I was thinking about resolutions and stuff.  Last year I joined Judy's UFO Challenge where I chose 12 UFOs and resolved to finish one each month.  I did very well on that, only failing on two - Orca Bay, which turned from a box-of-bits into a top-waiting-for-a-border-decision, and a pinwheel quilt which didn't even see the light of day!  Still ten completed UFOs is quite an achievement, especially since some of them had been around for quite a while!  That made a total of 24 quilts made in the year - not counting Linus quilts finished off in whatever way!   Here is the final finish, my Sampler Challenge Quilt, made from Lynne Edwards' designs scaled down to 8' finished. 
I love it and it will be on our bed as soon as the Christmas quilts go away.  Here is a close up of the border where you can just see my quilting of meander and leaf.  Very suitable, I thought.
And here is the first quilt of 2013, the first few blocks of Easy Street by Bonnie Hunter.  This quilt is looking stunning - typical of Bonnie's designs!

So what is in store for this year?  I think I need to nominate some more UFOs, since that worked well for me last year.  I'll just see if there are any left in the drawer!
