So, way back in December, you know, the 30th and 31st (haha)
I got really motivated and decided I didn't want to start 2012 with UFO's hanging over my head
I have wayyyy too many projects I want to accomplish in 2012
So, I buckled down and sewed, and sewed, and sewed.
Well, it was worth it.
I was able to complete the blocks for TWO quilts I've had on my list for a while...
The first is my ruby, pearl and opal
I cut the pieces and laid it on my flannel
tablecloth design wall..
and left it there..
Blocks are finished!
These took a lottttt of time, tons of piecing which I knew.. but didn't really think about haha -
over the course of the 2 days I was able to complete them
I love this - so feminine!
Still need to do the sashing, but the bulk of the quilting on the top is done :)
Next, my swoon quilt.. nope, still not mine - my parents quilt
These were going good till Christmas struck..
Again, needs sashing, but the blocks are done
This is for my parents bedroom at our beach house
Mom's favorite color is blue, dad's is yellow.. so the room is yellow with blue accents
This will definitely be an awesome addition
Now I just need to figure out the backing :)
These happy piles are sitting with my sewing things like before,
only happier now since they're closer to being done
Till next time
