I've been working through some works in progress this week! I have a ton of new things I want and need to start, so I thought I'd take this last week of the year and try to finish up a few things. This first project has been on-going for well over a year. I originally made a 16-block quilt and then set it aside.
I just wasn't happy with the kind of off-kilter layout the 16 blocks gave. So...I made a few more blocks and now have a 25-block arrangement that I really like! This is now hanging in the closet waiting for a backing...still not completely finished, but at least it's out of the box!
This Fig Tree quilt had been hanging in the closet (waiting for backing, quilting, binding) for well over a year as well. I pieced the backing right before Christmas, and just attached the binding last night. Just a little bit of handwork and this will be finished soon!
I've got a few more things to finish up by the end of the year, and then a whole lot of starts for January!
One of my starts will be a quilt-along with free blocks (2 per month) for the next six months. At the end I'll give you a couple of different finishing options. I hope you'll join along--more on this project soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
