All this month I will be adding photos of what I have finished last year for you to see. I have been looking at my projects and what I have finished. I am amazed at all I did get done this year even with my health issues, Shoulder replacement Surgery and Back problems. WOW! is all I can say. I am amazed and surprised at what I have accomplished in 2012. I have placed my photos on Flickr and you can view all my finishes here - Flickr - 2012 finishes. I will also continue to update my photos
One of my more recent finishes was this Christmas Mini Quilt/Table topper. I started by paper piecing the middle square in a square - by hand sewing because the pieces were too tiny to do by machine. I was able to machine piece the outer square, added two borders and then decided to make it reversible by using autumn colors on the back. I had an orphan square from last years project so I added sashing and batting and surfaced quilted it before appliqueing it to the back. I was able to match it up with the black sashing on the front and used my fancy machine stitching with clear thread. I enjoyed the process of this quilt. The Pattern, "A star is Born", was from one of my older quilting magazines. I again made it my own by increasing the border size. It seems like I do this pretty often doesn't it.
