As I write this, it's been pouring down rain for a few days. Welcome weather, let me tell you! Northern California has been drought-sticken for way too long.
One of the projects I'm going to do this year is the Céçile and Béa quiltalong. This year they are doing flowers. Lots of flowers.
Rather than appliqué, I decided to paper-piece my lovelies. I started with an old old book of patterns and am using my Kaffe Fassett scraps from my tuffett! There are other fabrics thrown in as well but the idea is the same: BRIGHTS
My November mini was completed, at last. Hand quilted the whole thing! Do I get a star, Wendy Reed (constantquilter)?? This was a top I started years ago and I'm happy to have it completed. I will say that I did enjoy the hand-quilting but am sad to report that my Signature quilting thread was faded on the outside from lack of use! ;-)
My December mini was the swap I did with Wendy, using the Kim Diehl pattern. So I finished the year having made 12 minis!
What's up for this year? I'm going to do the minis again and made something from the Vintage Patchwork book. Not sure what else. Do you have lots of plans for the year??
Now I have a question for you: how do you hang your quilts? My minis are on the wall with tacks. My bigger quilts, however, are frequently hung inartfully. I'm very curious to hear your methods for hanging quilts...
