Who woulda thought...

... that the end of a year could be so busy and the beginning of a New Year even busier??   I didn't realize that I was so busy until I came to post a new blog-post.  It's been a while!

I've been busy with the Kaffe Fassett snowball quilt and that one is almost finished.  Look at all those snowballs!  I'm wishing we had some REAL snowballs around here! 

I picked up some very interesting fabric for a border for this and a bright choice for a back.  I absolutely love most of the Kaffe Fassett bright colors and prints.  Can't wait for this quilt to be done!    

I finished up a baby quilt for a customer.  She handed me 7 baby blocks that had been pieced by someone in the family, and now she wants these made into a baby quilt for a mom-to-be in the family.  Pictures when I have her OK.

And then I finished up Pam's Beautiful Batik Flowers today.  I did a little bit of custom.  I love the wonkiness of the blocks and didn't want to overwhelm them with a lot of quilting ... but at the same time felt that they deserved quilting just for them.  So I put some stitches inside the flowers themselves, then did a swoop-swoop in the small border, and piano keys in the large border.  Fun but pretty simple.  I used Magna-Glide Sea Mist thread on this and it really popped. 

Happy New Year!  Stay safe, happy, and healthy!
