December NewFO & Secrets
My list is small for December (compared to other months). The FMQ Challenge monthly project as well as happy to report completed 12 months - whoot, whoot! Monthly Doll Quilt(Doll) Swap and Konda's Mini Quilt. And I sent out my pillowcases for Sandy Hook well before the snow storms. I do have a few projects done for early January, but can't list or show - SO - I had to be honest and show I had to cave to the 'end of year inventory sales'. But at $1.24 - $2.49 a yard - they were just too good to pass up. I can see some of these being used in future mini swaps.
I did get the last Jelly Roll Quilt Challenge quilt top done earlier in the month and had hoped to have it totally finished, but catching the Flu kept me from getting to the binding. I used this pattern by Piece N Quilt for inspiration and changed it up a little. I used 'Tend the Earth' by Deb Strain, simple straight line quilting with robin's egg blue and lilac purple threads - and will have a pretty spring quilt ready when my favorite birds and lilacs return.
