January Finishes

If you look at my stash reduction plan for January and February it would appear that I got very little done.  But I would disagree.  I think I got quite a bit done.  Shall we go through the list?

First, my Thimbleberries BOM.  I want to complete one each month so now I am up to 5 completed:



Next is my Fat Quarter Quilt.  This is the quilt our group decided to make:


This is my quilt so far:

Yeah.  Do you see the lovely ripples?  Many of the pieces had bias edges on the outside edges and I must have been too hard on them.  Also, I wish that the directions included the sizes of completed units so that I could see where I went wrong.  Anyway, I am planning to sew with my quilt guild Monday, and Lucia, a member of the group, has reworked some of the directions so there will not be so many bias edges.  I am going to take off the 4 corners and see if I can fix it or have to start again.

And speaking of Lucia, she participated on an online swap and did not receive a gift back.  She has been such a good quilting friend to me so I decided to make her a couple of goodies:


She and her husband often travel so I made her some totes and organizers to carry her quilting supplies.  Below is a ruler carrier-I may make one for myself!

Finally my stacked coins and applique quilt is on my frame right now.  I ordered some batting which should be here soon so then I can get it quilted.  Here is a picture of the quilt for those who may not have seen it:


Oh look!  There is my kitty looking at the quilt!
