quilting wips, december 2014 …

IMG_2978Hello fellow quilters and/or gentle blog readers … it’s time to wrap up the quilting happenings of the last month of last year!

It was pretty much a December like everyone else’s, I am guessing, with lots of rushing about and doing important last-minute stuff, with not all that much time for quilting and the like.

Here’s an update of what I did, quilting-wise, during December … oh dear … not much done at all.

I picked up two quilts from the professional quilters and bound them on the very last day of December, and dropped two more quilts off to be quilted. Hmmm … and I think that was about it, apart from working on my current hexie quilt, called *starz*, which you can see above, to the left!

Here are the two finished quilts … Playground and Sweet Life, from ‘Simply Retro’, by Camille Roskelley. I’m so sorry about the quality of the photos, taken at sunset yesterday afternoon. I’ll get some better images over the weekend and repost.


So here’s how the month of December panned out …
