Monday morning star count is back!

I am so happy that the Monday morning star count is back at http://www.lifeunderquilts.blogspot.co.uk

I discovered this paper piecing link party and a few short weeks later it was done. I am happy that it is back as I love to see what others are working on and it gives me inspiration as I work on my grandmother flower garden quilt.

I started in March of 2013 and am nearing completion of the basting and joining together of flowers. Here is a photo of the sections side by side, I am working on two sections and then will join them together so that I am not handling the entire quilt.

I have enough colored flowers made

And now need to make more of the cream flowers

Sorry my colors are not true as these photos were taken at night.

Here is my travel kit, although I do most of my stitching at home in front of the television

I have not decided on a border as yet, I am leaning towards hand quilting this even though I know it will take me a few years.

A year in review

2013 was the year that I really became a quilter. I am amazed at how many projects I was able to complete this year. There are a few more things that I made but did not take photos of and I have lots of projects on the go. Its fun to look back and see what I accomplished.

2013 Quilts

My goals this year are to learn how to paper piece and to make some baby quilts for new step grandbaby who is due in June. I also want to get my Grandmothers Flower Garden top completed and then figure out if I will hand or machine quilt it.
