Nine Patch Top is Finished!

Finish it up 15!  2015, that is.  This 9 Patch quilt has been sitting in pieces in a plastic box for some time.  I pulled it out and realized that it was almost done.  So I finished sewing the blocks together, went out and bought some batting, and spray basted it.  I brought it to the DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting last Saturday where I began hand quilting it.  I am using perle cotton #8 to quilt it which is new for me.  I think it's going to go quickly!

Happy New Year 2015!

I made my own quilt calendar!  With a little help from Snapfish and my daughter.  I am good about taking pictures of my quilts so it was fun looking for images for each month.  You can't tell but some are large and some are small.  This one was a mini quiltalong from Lori at Humble Quilts  sometime in the past.

I am excited about my sewing projects and activities in 2015.  I have made a list of things I want to accomplish which includes finishing up a few quilts that have been long-neglected.  I have already finished two tops.  I plan to do some more garment sewing and probably more bags as well.  I will be attending a quilt exhibit at the DAR Museum in Washington, DC, in February.  I will also be attending a quilt retreat in April.  So much fun!

What are your plans for the new year?
