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!
