End Of The Year Finish

I managed to squeeze in a last-minute finish for 2014 – the red, black & white Chopsticks quilt.

123114   (863x1024)The quilt top was completed in November 2012 and, after aging for two years it is now an official quilt.  I love the sharp contrast of the red, white and black.

There are areas of the machine quilting that are not as smooth or even as I would like, but I won’t get better unless I practice – right?  I was trying out three of the machine quilting motifs from the book Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters.  The book contains pages of quilting designs with detailed diagrams and  encouragement to help a quilter succeed with their machine quilting.  I enjoy paging through the book and dreaming of the day far in the future when I may be as good as Angela.

2014 closes with 14 quilt finishes, 69 yards of fabric used and one move.   I wonder what 2015 will bring.  Actually I do know one thing that 2015 will bring – a new granddaughter.

A Blessed New Year to everyone,

Marlene
