January was a fun month for me. It was busy and hectic. Being a bookkeeper in my other life, you might imagine I was busy beyond belief with my client's work. Your imagination would be correct. The last big push this week nearly knocked me out. But I'm still on my feet, and still quilting.
I was able to FMQ 3 quilts this month. Two still need the bindings finished. The first two were Project Linus quilt tops given to me by Susan of Susan's Calico Creations. She said they needed to be finished. The first one was this cheery bowtie quilt that was all hand pieced! I put the borders on it and got it quilted in very little time.
The final one is a baby quilt for my friend Mary Ann's new grandson. He was born early in September, but is doing well now. I had a cute Debbie Mumm Noah's Ark print for the backing but wouldn't you know it was just a smidgen too narrow, so I artfully placed a stripe on the back to make it fit.
