Out with 2019 – In with 2020

My 2019 end-of-year post is a bit late, but here it is. The binding on the Baby Bear Quilt was finished last Thursday, but I am counting this as my final 2019 finish.

Baby Bear was machine quilted with a pantograph from Urban Elementz named Parchment. I am very pleased with the end result and smile every time I look at it.

However the last couple of years has increased (head hanging in shame inserted here) my UFOs, so the plan is to decrease the number in 2020. So in an effort to begin that goal, I pulled Bin #10 from the shelf. It contained these fussy cut medallions that have been patiently waiting for inspiration for several years.

There were 16 medallions which is an odd number to set in a quilt, so I decided to put 13 in this setting with an alternate block and the remaining 3 in a wallhanging. After consideration, the 3 blocks were cut into quarters and reassembled as shown below.

The border came from the pattern Melbourne Medallions by Jean Boyd and is named Echo (22″ x 27″).

As the final picture for 2019 – my empty spools! Not as many as some years, but still proof that some quilting was accomplished in 2019.

May 2020 be filled with quilt inspiration, quilty time and many finished items.

    Those bears are definitely smile-worthy! I like what you did with the medallions, too. Progress!
