This is a Schnibble quilt that I did in Halloween fabrics a couple of years ago. It is now quilted, bound and ready for being used as a wall hanging or table topper this fall.

I promised when I'd fixed the camera gremlins, I'd post photos of items I finished earlier this year. Well, the gremlins are gone, I hope for good, as I now have a card reader for uploading photos from the camera [a lovely simple solution in the end]. However, I've forgotten exactly which UFO's lacked photos, so please forgive me if I include items from 2012 that you have already seen.
This is the lap quilt I finally completed for myself, which I called the iris quilt [from the fabric range chosen], and sub-titled 'memories of Anji', the lovely lady who taught us her pattern for this quilt, and who tragically died before I finished my version.
Next is my beautiful Geisha girl, with my choice of Japanese-inspired fabrics machine appliqued on to the pre-printed panel, purchased several years earlier. I did slightly modify the landscape design features to suit fabrics I already had in my stash. She keeps me company in my craft room.
I'm unsure whether I've already posted anything about this quilt, made for our niece's wedding in May this year in Italy. I started cutting it last year when she announced her engagement, so it would qualify as a 2013 finish. She wanted blues and beiges, so I raided my stash for anything Asian-inspired; I only had to purchase the creamy horizontal sashing fabric, plus a beautiful blue floral tipped with gold for the backing to make a reversible queen size quilt. Joanne Clay was the excellent professional quilter, here in Adelaide - she always knows just what pattern will best enhance a quilt. I absolutely loved making this quilt, based on "Moonlight Garden" a free pattern by Hoffman several years ago.

This is a UFO from way back in 2005 called Simply Fun. I bought the pattern and fabric from a shop in Nashville and finally got around to quilting it in May of this year. This one is made from Civil War reproduction fabrics.
This quilt is named Lovers Links and is from a pattern in McCall's Quilting magazine year 2000. It's made from 30's reproduction fabrics.
Thanks to this group I am catching up on my UFO's. The stack is getting smaller.
do you see that? 121 degrees!!!! yikes.... I want to go up to the mountains!!!! thankfully the temp has dropped to the low 100s. Crazy!!!
Anyway, I have the last 3 little table hangings finished! the whole year is finished.
so now I am at 39 UFOs finished for the year. I really think I will hit my goal of 50 for the year. I really feel this list is helping me. You certainly give me encouragement!! it is very appreciated. thank you!

I'm still slack at getting it to him, even though I only had to put it together and quilt and bind it.
Delivery should be this week, I hope.
Boy was I pleased to be able to cross this one off my list! Just hope the next one won't be so long a wait.

That is the name I have given to this quilt made with block collected from swaps in Quilting block swaps Australia.
I started saving these blocks in March 2012, and still have a number of star blocks in this colour range which I plan to continue collecting to make a starry version.
