January Finishes

I think Judy L's got it right. At the end of each month, I too will try to post my finishes for the month. It is a great way to keep track of what I actually did do.
1) Palmetto - UFO #6 -it was a combination of cut pieces and blocks. I finish piecing it and sent it to DD#1 for quilting. She is almost finished with it but not quite. 
2) Tanya's Graduation Quilt - UFO #a- it was also a combination of cut pieces and blocks. It is pieced with the backing and will go to DD#1 today.
3) Block Swap Block for Kirt - he asked for ART DECO. That block was lots of fun to design and construct.
4) Bee Block for Linda - That was also an interesting block since her colors are not my usual style. It took me a long time to see the block in the material. (No picture!)
5) Potato Bags - I made 6 and have 6 more to make. Now writing a tutorial for a friend.
6) BINDING for Donovan's quilt - My DD#1 made a string quilt-as-you-go. She gave it to me to do the bindings -more than 3 quilts. (No picture!)
7) Texas Braids -I took the Bonnie Hunter class for Texas Braids and made 2 braids which I promptly gave to DD#1.
When I look at it, January was a pretty productive month. February will be too since today I start binding quilts - 3 charity quilts; Spirit's Frogs; Orange Tom Cat; Saints' Star Season; and hopefully, Tanya's Graduation quilt and possibly Dottie's Blue&Yellow. In-between all the binding, I plan on working on UFO #10(Kats-Red & Black) Judy L's pick for February. 


  1. Wow, you accomplished a lot in January! And your UFO 6 looks lovely. Congrats!

  2. Great projects! You have a very open quilting style - applique, traditional and modern patterns. I love them all but Palmetto is my favorite as I have this color combination on my "to do" list of quilts this year.
