First finish in 2013

002

In my sewingroom there is a pile of quilts ready to be quilted. Some are already basted and some I just have the top ready.  Walking into my sewingroom today I told myself that Sundays will be the day that I work on one quilt in this pile.  Hopefully there will be some finishes.

003

This is the one I picked for todays work.  Leannes Beasley’s “At home stitching” from Homespun magazine several years ago. It has been ready basted for a long time, but I had not decided whether I should machinequilt it or handquilt it.  But today I traced the lines with my heramarker.

004

And started to handquilt it. Long time since I handquilted, and I realised I have missed it.

005

Several hours later I have a finish.  My first finish in 2013 and I really love this little quilt.  Now I have to find the right place to hang it.

Saying for today:

Good for you. A finish already and the year is so young. At this rate, all of your UFOs will be done by the end of the year.

Oh - that is wonderful. Actually you remind me that I have a credit at amazon.com. Perhaps I can see if they have book of Leanne B's. patterns. I always love the things that you make of hers. Wishing you a very happy new year. Stay warm and dry.
