December OMG

My December OMG is to quilt and bind this mini.  I was hoping for something a little more ambitious, but looking at what's left of the month and what my schedule looks like, I'll be lucky to completely finish this.  


This mini is made from the leftovers of a guild swap mini I made.  Yes, I somehow managed to make double the amount of blocks I needed for the swap.  The mini for the swap was on point, so I did a straight setting on this one.  I felt like it needed borders, so I added those.

The top currently measures 23.25" square.  I am custom quilting it using my QCT software to practice block placement.  I will probably mix in a bit of free motion quilting.  The biggest hurdle will be learning how to place borders using the software and then just sitting down and actually binding it before the end of the month.  December is sneaky in regards to passage of time, is it not?

Purple Flower Chain Quilt #2019FALQ4

I have a finish!  I started this purple flower chain quilt in 2005.  I got the top done and into a box it went.  I bought backing for it some time in the past year.  Thankfully I had plenty of the original fabric left for binding.  For some reason, when I first started quilting I never bought enough fabric for the binding.
Anyway, I tried a new quilting design on it.  It's called Sweet Pea by Julia Quiltoff.  This one takes forever to stitch out!  This quilt is approximately 49" square and each pass took over an hour!  That being said, I think it complements the quilt nicely.


I even made a nice tag for this one.  I'm not great at labelling my quilts.  Often I just write my name and the year on the back with a Micron pen.
Be sure to click on my 2019 Finishes tab.  I finally got pictures of all the quilts I've finished this year and updated the page.

This quilt is one of my Finish-a-long Q4 quilts.  As you may recall, I had a list of 15 proposed finishes for this quarter.  This is my third finish, number 12 on my list.  Hey, now I'm 20% done and there's less than a month to go!  LOL
