A Quick Look At 2012

Since this is the last day of the year I thought I would join 
others in blog land and take a look at what I've made this year.  

In looking over photos, I realized that I made many, many things 
that were never photographed.
I need to work on that for 2013. 
I have to say though that I am delightfully surprised 
that I finished seven quilts this year. 
That's right, a big fat seven
Can you tell I'm thrilled?!


As our family says goodbye to 2012
We reflect on the precious times spent together with loved ones.
The wonderful day to day happenings filled with
little moments that matter most.
The highs and a few lows, that although difficult, have stretched us.
We rejoice in God's graciousness and love to us.

A special thank you to all who visit my little creative space here in blog land.
May your 2013 be one of overflowing
love, great health and joy.

Here's to 2013

Finished Chevron

The Chevron is done! 

 I wanted to show the completed Chevron Quilt from the tutorial 
I did last month for the Let's Get Acquainted Hop
I got it quilted and bound, but didn't get a chance 
to get it all crinkly and washed before delivering it to my daughter.  


I went with quilting that followed the zig zaggy chevrons 
and extended it in the borders. Edge to edge. 
The binding is a celery green with white dots that I love!


I pieced the back with what I could find in my stash and thought would work. 
I love the interest that a fun pieced back adds. 


Here's a close up. I didn't get nearly as many photos as I wanted. 
I gave it to her on Thanksgiving, so it wasn't really a priority. 
I'm still hoping to get a few more photos next time we visit, 
especially after its first washing.


Everything about this quilt says my daughter, 
the pattern, the fabric and the colors. 
They are all perfect for her.

Do you have a finished quilt from the tutorial?  
I'd love to see it!
