Finally....It was done!

Managed to complete this few hours before the end of 2010. Though it took almost a year to complete, I was overwhelmed with the final results and such a relief. The backing fabric was a simple lantern prints and this quilt measures 88 x 68 inches.

Just to wish everyone here, a Happy New Year - 2011!!!

Made It!

I've been watching eagerly as each month passes by and have enjoyed seeing everyone's beautiful work.

Now I can happily present my own November and December ... nothing like doing two months in one but done they are. I was determined to finish before the end of the year.

The last four months still require their names to be embroidered so that may or may not happen before December 31 but I'm OK with that.

Ta-Da .... the year of 2009 ... one strip for each day. I'm still amazed that I made it!

Now for sashings, borders and so on ... but that's for 2010.

Merry Christmas to all.

This is for October, some shades of turquoise.... love them flowing!

Have collected few fabrics stash with large and gordie floral designs and I arranged them for November.

Definitely this one is for December.... even though had not much christmassy fabrics, but somehow it looks merrier blend together.

So all done! Yeah!!!!!!

I was not true to myself for neglecting this challenge for a long time. But not forgetting to collect some strips from my stash. All 8 pieces had been sewn and have 4 more to complete the whole year.....now I am off for the rest......

10 Down ~ 2 to Go!

That is .... 10 months completed and November and December to go!

All the fabrics are compliments of a lovely friend who was having a spring clean of her fabric bits and pieces.

I'd like to embroider all the family birthdates etc, so that might be my challenge for 2010.

Month Nine ~ September

Wow, already 3/4's of the year have come and gone. I still can't believe that I've managed to keep up. At the beginning of the year I had good intentions to stay in time, but often life takes over.

So I am pleasantly surprised to present the month of September. A number of these were fat 1/4's I received as part of a Birthday Swap ... some from my daughter for Xmas, Birthday and Mother's Day ... one as a prize ... and a few others.

I'm really enjoying the making of this quilt. How is everyone else coming along?

Thankyou Rachel for planting the seed.
