A Finish and a few more WIP


Yesterday I told you all that I had a big finish to reveal

Well Remember by Log Cabin quilt...it’s DONE!!!!!  

I started this quilt back in 2009 when I took a learn to quilt log cabin class. As you all know I started to beat myself up about not being good enough to finish it and there it sat for about 3 and a half years all quilted and just waiting for the binding. Well I put on my big girl panties and finished the sucker!!! I am uber proud of myself!!

Since it is Wednesday I thought I would link up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

My February to do list
Complete Christmas table runner: Still thinking on this one....
 We bee learning group 1 Jen has us making string blocks. I have made these before, but not in the way she requested so can't wait to get a start on them!!
Hugs and Kisses Blog hop as you may have guessed it’s a Valentine’s Day themed one. I have a few ideas for a new mini to try out.

My next project to come off the no progress list is......

We bee Learning 2012 group 2 quilt:  I would like to get the borders on this beauty this month and get started on the quilting.

 I bought this cute fabric for the back....bees for my bee quilt. Any suggestions on how to quilt it? I might try and quilt in the same pattern as in the orange fabric?

  4. Love the colors of your cabin and congratulations on a big finish. A scribble meander would make a great pattern for your Bee quilt and love the bee fabric for the back.

  5. Congrats on your finish! It is darling. I think it is sad all it needed was the binding for so long! So good it is done now and can be enjoyed.

  10. Well done on your finish. I love the colours you used for this. I also think a meander, like in the orange fabric, would be a good quilting design for your Bee block quilt.

  12. We are our own worse critiques. I have begun to follow this philosophy: my quilts are made with love and kindness, not by a robot in factory. So please pardon the occasional mistake or mismatched seam. Isn't it great to get a UFO finished? I am working on my own list.
