I just wanted to pop in and say I actually have a finish!
Well I've had several this year already, but I need to find the photos.
For now though, I have this darling little cot quilt I finished last night for our youngest Grandson Liam. He is 1 year old on Saturday and it's his Birthday Present.
Now, last year there was only ONE UFO I really wanted to get finished. It didn't happen. But already this year I have made enormous steps in getting it finished:
That should be in about a month.
Anyway... That's all from me for now. I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and New Year and has come back revving to go.
Have a Lovely Day!

I always include a birth photo on the label for the grandchildren. The older ones enjoy looking back at their pictures on their quilts.

When I first saw a coin quilt I fell in love with them. A great way to showcase each fabric without having to have yard pieces. I've also found out they are a great way to use up some scraps too. I did a little straight line quilting and then decided to free motion some flowers into the white spaces. It has been a few months since I did any free motion quilting and I sure did feel a bit rusty. I love the way a quilt gets all wrinkly after a run through the washer and dryer.
We had a very windy and cold day here again. The wind was very helpful in showing the back of the quilt. It's a nice blue fabric with little houses all over it.
Robin L. - 1 finish for 2014

It started as a BOM, and is meant to be a 9 block quilt, but I made one of the blocks off centre and didn't have any fabric to do another, so it got put away.
Then I thought, why not make a wall hanging with 3 blocks, a lap rug with 4 blocks and 2 cushions with the remaining blocks, using the off centre block for a cushion.
So here is stage one of that UFO, the wall hanging. The design is of course by Michelle Hill and the quilt is the Adelaide floral sampler.

I’m in the process of finalising the “Year of Blooms” pattern now and finished quilting it yesterday….so I guess you could say it was my first UFO finish of the year!!!!!?????
Once I have the pattern all written up (which should be today or tomorrow if there are no interruptions………listening, family?????), I will get it out to those of you with December finishes, along with the December block!
Keep up the good work with all the finishes… if you’re anything like me, your UFO pile is growing instead of shrinking…..*eek*
We’re onto a new year so we’ll be offering a new gift each month for those of you with finishes…..but you’ll just have to wait and see what that one is!!!!
In the meantime….
Sew many hugs xo :o)

This first one is called Squash Blossoms and is from a pattern by Fig Tree Quilts. It 63” x 77”. The appliqué was stitched on the machine.
This one is Reflections of Kyoto from Connecting Threads. It was an end of the year sale kit in I believe 2011.
I have no idea what this one is called because I can’t seem to find the pattern I used. I know it was from the Stitch ’N Sisters club led by Pat Wys and was from a magazine but that's about all I seem to remember.
Thanks Dawn and Wendy for all the encouragement throughout the year and a Happy New Year to everyone.
