So, for the first quarter of the year, I will be finishing...
1. Red and white "Double X" quilt. I started this in 2005 following a pattern in American Patchwork and Quilting. I am now in the process of quilting it to within an inch of its life.
2. Austro-zelanic quilt for Mr Q. That's a fancy way of saying that it is composed of fabrics from Australia and New Zealand, collected on our trips down under to visit Mr Q's family. The pattern is Elizabeth Hartman's New Wave Quilt. I started this quilt in January 2012 as a sample for a class.
The top is now done....
....and I've been thinking of ways to quilt it. When finished this quilt can keep Mr Q warm when he is away from home working in Hull every week.
3. A recently started quilt - I began this one on New Year's Eve, and finished the top about 48 hours later. The pattern came from a quilt calendar that Mum bought me for Christmas. I've pieced a back, so it just needs quilting and binding.
4. This almost doesn't count as a finish since I only started it yesterday! However, it will be a gift for my husband's cousin and his wife who have just moved into their new home, so I do really need to get it finished. The pattern is "Transparency" from Quilts Made Modern by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr. I'm using Kona solids for this one, including a colour very similar to the dresses the bridesmaids wore at their wedding. It's all cut out, and I've started piecing the blocks.
So there you have it. 4 quilts. 3 months. Better get back to the salt mine (as Mr Q calls my sewing room).
