January finishes

11 Feb

Total of 5 finishes for January.  Heirloom was offering double points for small quilts.  These first 4 will either be wall hangings or table squares.

Jan finish1 Up close 1 Back 1

The square in the middle of the block is probably 1″ finished.

Jan finish 2 Up close 2 Backing 2

Little blue baskets, badly pieced but not real obvious once given a hot bath and dry!

Jan finis 3 Up close 3 Backing 3

Teeny 9 patch!  The squares within the 9 patch are 1/2 ” finished!

Jan finish 4 Backing 4

Colorful little hour glass.  Apparently the photog decided against an up close pic!

i think (don’t quote me) these were Jo Morton patterns from her little women club.  Love the texture created by the quilting, wash, dry process!  I quilted all 4 of these with 1 backing.  Quilted was freehand as is obvious when looking at my wiggly lines!  I hand bound these.

Jan finish 5 This one is a nice lap sized quilt that we gave as a wedding gift.  2″ finished batik squares.  Quilted in a teal thread with a nice all over design.  This quilt was hand bound.

and that wraps January. So I started with 96 – 5 January finishes leaves me at 91!

    Good progress and good work. Do you work with minis a lot? Are many of the 91 mini?

      I don’t do many minis. I find it a bit stressful to try to be so precise. Actually, I think there is inky 1 other mini in my UFOs. There are several small quilts and or runners but the piecing is pretty average size.

    Looks good! Bet it feels good too. Love the small quilts – I might need to do some of those once I finish up some current projects.

      It’s a good start. This month the challenge is anything with red in it gets double points. I have 5 picked out. Will see what happens in the next 2 weeks!
