First, my Simply Sawtooth 2015 BOM quilt is finished! Hooray!!! Completed the day before we left for several days to replace a floor in Bozeman over Christmas. Yep, y'all were playing, my husband and I were a'workin' :) (And having a great time, I might add....)
|I LOVE it!|
I began with the orange "Flower Fields in sunset", from Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow, as my focal print, and ended up using it as the binding too!
Backed with white fleece, quilted on either side of simple diagonals, it finishes at approximately 60" x 72".
I am sew excited to have started and finished it this year!
Secondly, I finished my Jelly HST Chevron quilt, first mentioned here!
This began as a "To The Point" pattern, but changed to a simple chevron arrangement once I got to playing with the 6"blocks.
I used my first and only jelly roll for this one, Miss Kate, by Bonnie&Camille. I backed it with white fleece too, quilted in the ditch, and tied in the white strips with my new Valdani perle cotton (from Sunny Day Supply!), binding it with a bias cut black and white gingham. I love it!
I decided early on as I was constructing this, that I would be giving this to the 6 year old daughter of some good friends back east...it will be a fun surprise for all of them, I hope!
|55" x 66"|
So, of the 4 quilts I had in the queue (I love that, Quilts in the Queue!) 2 weeks ago, 2 are finished and 2 remain to kick start my 2016!
While in Bozeman, I had the chance to wash and dry several of this year's quilts for the first time...oh so much yummier now!
|my first "intentional" LV purchase! Zen Chic, mini charms and 2 yardages :)|
No clothes shopping for this girl, lol!
|will I ever have enough of Sarah Campbell's Melodies? and Curiosities...George Bun in aqua!|
And to top it off, we returned home to find this package of goodies from my Brother-in-law waiting for me! There may have been some peanut M&Ms too...
And finally, to round out my "Flashy '15 Finale", a couple of year-end mosaics...
Quilts, large, small, and mini-mini...
Pouches and pillows...
And lest we forget, the pincushions... ;)
I am going to end the year as I started it, linking up with Lorna and Let's Bee Social!
And also with CrazyMomQuilts and Finish It Up Friday!
Wishing you all the happiest of new years! See you there!
