Please excuse the poor quality photo. My design wall is in my basement (along with the rest of my sewing area) and the lighting is not all that great. Poor lighting or not, this is my February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. These are my blocks from the Virtual Quilting Bee that Amy Smart hosted last year on her blog Diary of a Quilter. I had a great time making these blocks every other week. I really don’t know why I stopped when it came time to add the sashing and put it all together. It’s been taking up space in a WIP box long enough and it’s time to add the sashing and get this top completed. It would be awesome if I could also baste and quilt it too, but that might be pushing it for February, especially with all my swap commitments. So, my goal for February is to finish piecing this top.
My mom also participated in this Virtual Quilting Bee and managed to get her quilt completed months ago. Hmmmm, I guess my procrastination isn’t hereditary.
She did a beautiful job!
