New Year, Old Projects

Happy New Year!  Hope everyone is off to a good start in 2014!

I've seen lots of postings about resolutions, but this won't be one of them.  Instead of a resolution, I have set myself a goal for 2014.... turn some unquilted tops into quilts!   I took stock of my sewing room, and came up with too many finished tops just waiting to be quilted.

First up, is La Vie En Rose.

It's just a small table topper, and seemed like a good place to start.  I let the lines in the design dictate how to quilt it.

I've got the binding all cut and pressed, and should have this done in a couple of nights of TV watching.

Right now, I'm sticking to straight line quilting, but hopefully will work up the courage to do some free motion quilting eventually.   Up next, is the Monkey Wrench quilt top I started at this time last year.  As of this posting, this one just needs some borders.

Time to get back to work.

  1. The rose quilt came out so pretty. I remember admiring it when you were piecing it. It is so delicate looking, too.

  2. I love the roses, too! It is so perfect for Valentine's Day because it is romantic without being all dumb red hearts, LOL!

  3. yep, same as you. I want to get those UFO's moving!

  4. That is so gorgeous -- I love the way the triangles look like opening petals.
