Finish-a-long results for Q4-2014

Mixed success, I’m afraid.  And although I think I might be able to pull a last minute finish out of a hat, who am I kidding? I have to go back to work tomorrow.   I definitely will be joining up with Adrianne for 2015, but I am thinking that I need to stop making such […]

Triangle Jewels – Blogger’s Quilt Festival

I want to share the story of my Triangle Jewels quilt with you today.  The end of the story, is that this quilt is going to a baby boy who will be born very soon to my work colleague.  Based on the clothes that she wears, and a few comments that she has made, T. […]

Q4 in the finish-a-long

Welcome back folks!  Some successes last quarter, but I am feeling really bogged down by these WIP, so trying to get through them.  In Q3, I finished 2 quilts, both baby quilt gifts so they had specific deadlines, if you know what I mean.  So just to keep me honest, here is the new list. […]
