finally a finish

first finish of 2013.

it's been a long time coming, what with so many starts in 2012. these were started in January of this year and finished just Monday, in time for some quick photos on Tuesday and onto a plane for Belgium on Wednesday. it feels like i haven't started and finished anything this quick in a long time.

two quilts, for our nieces...one loves aqua and the other, well let's just say she loves to eat sweets. the pattern is based on the Squares and Strips Bed Quilt by Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew. this pattern is very easy, fun and quick to make.

I am glad to hear that the girls loved them and were excited to use them. even paulin wanted in on the fun...he already has his own!

now that these are out the door, I've pulled out one of my WIP's, one that was started sometime in February of last year. while looking for that one, I came across the flying geese quilt and guess what...all it needs is the binding! what the heck am I waiting for with that one?!?


2012 was a year full of many starts and hardly any finishes.  i started a sweater for my baby nephew and then gifted it to him within a few weeks when he came to visit from belgium. sadly, no photos of the finished object nor of baby nephew!

my list of W.I.P. that were started in '12 is astounding, i am thinking that I should take inventory to guilt myself into finishing some things up before starting in on something new.

with that said...what i am working on now, are two quilts for my neices in belgium.  these were started in 2013, and are in various states of completion.

the novelty sweet treat quilt is ready for binding, and the aqua one is about 25% done with quilting.
