Design Wall Monday 12/31/12

I couldn't pass up the last design wall Monday, seems like it's been months since I've actually had something on the design wall.

And look at this, all caught up with Easy Street.  The colors are the same colors I used for Orca Bay and this is the first time that I'm using Bonnie's colors, mostly because I LOVE the color palette and hey I had everything.   I almost thought about swapping the purple out for Red but then I really didn't have anything dark enough and though it would be too many mid range colors so I stuck to the original.  Now I have a gazillion squares to trim up :)  It felt so good to start something new, it's been so long.

And what would New Year's Eve be without a recap of 2012, while I didn't achieve all my goals the two most important to me were achieved.  I did make more quilts for great cause (9 this year which is 2 more than last year)  and I also started quilting for QOV, I think I ended up quilting 10 quilts for QOV and really that is my favorite part.  The other goal was to get proficient at the long, while I wouldn't necessarily say I feel proficient, I am satisfied with the progress made.  So all in all I call 2012 a great quilting year.

Wishing every one a wonderful and safe 2013!!

QOV done and Happy New Year!!

I did finally get that last QOV quilt completed.  These came from Judy in IN.  This one was a lot of fun.  I got to try out a few different things, a little curved cross hatching, a baptist fan border (tried this for the first time, I like it), and of course a few different feathers, I do love feathers.  I hope Judy will as  well.
