January in Review

It has been a good quilty month!!

I finished a UFO and got it on a bed.  I pieced this string quilt at the end of 2014/beginning of 2015.  My aunt quilted it on her long arm last spring and sadly it has sat just needing the binding since then.  But now the binding is on and it is covering son #2.  All o f those seams and that extra layer of foundation muslin makes it a very heavy and warm quilt, perfect for winter.

Here are 3 more quilts with the bindings sewn on, just ready to be hand sewn down.  One has been quilted since last year, one I quilted myself on my machine and one I just got back from The Dancing Bobbin, our LQS.  Hopefully these will be done by the end of February.

I got 3 more quilt tops prepped and ready for the quilter.  Backs are sewn together and batting is cut.

My January comfort quilt is finished and turned in.  I used some layer cake scraps and practiced my machine stitching.  I am still very new to machine quilting and my machine throat is pretty small, so I am very happy with how it turned out.

I finished up 2 more quilt tops.

And started 2 of the scrap quilts that I have on my list for this year.

A scrappy bear paw:

And a Polaroid quilt:

I've had a lot of fun this month and feel really good about moving some of these projects along.
