First finish for 2012

    Just put the final stitches in the binding for this quilt last night. I think I started it in 2009. It was one of my first Quilt Alongs and I was able to pull from my stash for it.It's kind of like an Eye Spy for me in that it has fabric from past projects, and bits of my favorite fabrics.  I think I had to buy a bit of yardage for the back, because this one is a generous twin size, and I started quilting it before the Gammill, so that took me a while too. I just love the nine patch block and love the scrappiness of this quilt. Yay for the first finish of 2012 and one more check off on the UFO list!   TO THE NINES

Don't those nine patches make you smile?

and a few scrappier ones thrown across the back....

These are the blocks I sent off for Decembers'/ Harmony Do Good Stitches blocks of the month.

I like this mix of colors a lot!

and these are for January /Scrapbusters Bee Blocks.

I have joined one more Bee for the year and I am the Queen Bee for the month of February. Meaning I need to get my act together and figure what I would like my fellow bees to sew for me. It has to be wonky...thus the name Sew Bee Wonky.


  1. love your 9 patch! get those UFOs completed!! good for you!

  2. Love the nine patch! Congrats on another finish.
