Happy New Year!! First Finish 2016

Right, Happy New Year, just a few days late eh?  I can't believe I haven't had a post all year.  Well I've got lots to show you, even though it's been only 10 days in this new year, I've gotten a whole bunch done!!  Including a finish.  Yes I have a my first finish of the year.  This is Sunset.  All the left overs from Sonny's quilt.  Ha, the left over quilt is way bigger than Sonny's quilt.  But I used up every bit of fabric, wasn't putting any away.  Anything that wasn't used was cut up into 2.5 in squares and put in the square tote.  If it's not at least 2.5 in square, I toss it.    I love this one.  Pantograph is Aztec Wave by Patricia Ritter.  Hobbs 80/20 batting, So Fine thread on top.  I even got some snow pictures with this one.

Moon Dust is ready to be quilted.  This is another that I used all the scraps from Moon Glow and this is a really big quilt.  76 x 91 or something, even the black is left over from the kit.  I have enough strips for binding both Moon Dust and Moon Glow.  I think I'm going to try some graffiti quilting on this one.  Or maybe I'll try on a smaller quilt first.  I also tried a doodle for Graffiti quilting, really want to do a couple more than give it a try after finishing Moon Glow.

But wait, that's not all, I have Till Death Star Do We Part  (Moon Glow) on the frame.  Lots of quilting on this one, SITD on those stars is slow going

I also had  a couple of 1 yd cuts of flannel. I got these from Joanne's over the holidays, just love the three of these together.  I used the super sized nine patch  and quick and easy quilts.  Flannel on both sides so super soft.    I used the Baby Things pantograph, it's a really old one, not sure if they sell it anymore.  I'll have to go check who made it.  It was a big loose pantograph so I had all three done in no time.  And the back's are pieced too.  I actually had 2 yards of each so just had to add a little to the backing both ways and you've got a two fer quilt. I used what every fabric was in the center on the back.  Added some sweet yellow that I had and we were on our way
Super Nine Patch - 3 yards of fabric, 3 quilts, love it.
But I did save the best for last.  The twins will be here in April so I thought I should get busy.  Daughter #2 had already picked out the fox fabric for both quilts.  Had no idea what we going to do with them.  She saw this one on Bunkhouse Quilts  She liked the strips with the circles.  So here's what we have.  The same but different.  Can't wait to meet these little guys.  The fox applique is from Mr Fox's Garden by The Red  Boot Quilting Company.  I just printed the pattern 2 pages per sheet and I had baby foxes.  I love the argyle pants on this little fox, so fun picking out their pants :)  Fusible applique is the only thing I can do and well it'll hold up nicely to many washing and what ever these boys do.  I can't wait to quilt them.

  12. You have had a productive 2016! Sunset turned out beautifully! The flannel quilts are precious and the quilts for the twins are so fun and cute. But not so cute that a boy would be offended.
