Beautiful finishes Kristakz, I don't think I could ever count on making a pieced border to fit that accurately and the blue colours are a perfect match.
That is some very special birch wood fabric too, I've never seen fabric like it - beautiful.
Happy New Year all
Thanks E.J.

If I can promote a book (not mine) - "60 Pieced Quilt Borders" by Judy Laquidara does a fabulous job of explaining how to make pieced borders fit. Along with giving you 60 different ideas. She has a worksheet in there you can use for any quilt to figure out what size sashing strips you need to make your border fit.

--"Block Exchange" groupings
--halfway completed projects
--completed quilt tops needing to be sandwiched, quilted, and bind
--the most awful shower curtain my daughter talked me into converting it to a comforter; UGHHHHHH!!!

Thanks for hosting this and looking forward to the challenge.

Happy 2018 Guys. I just completed my list for 2018 and found only 9 completed for this year. Kinda sad but did have some significant reasons. My job for 2017 required some significant recruiting of outpatient facilities--163 for me and we had to work our days off for 2 1/2 months. Had to renew my 5yr infectious and communicable disease certification. My SIL with dementia challenges moving about a mile from us and preparing for my MIL to move the house next door to us next month. I am looking forward to retirement sometime in the next couple years.

So I guess I can celebrate finishing at least 9. Thanks guys for your progress with pictures. My last 4 pictures have are having uploading issues on my end.


Thanks again for organizing this thread and Happy New Year's.
Karen

Happy New Year everyone! I have binding to do so will have an early finish for 2018. With the Holidays and moving to the new house just didn't get it done. .
I did manage to get these done for your count Janice. Small table runner, another baby quilt that was a Boomerang block exchange, and a king quilt that was a block trade on the QB about 3 years ago and I used a falling block quilt that I made a couple of years ago for the back. That's all for 2017dscf3705.jpg dscf3707.jpgdscf3703.jpgdscf3704.jpg

Krista: wonderful beautiful quilts. The blue deer one really pops out to me. On your cardinals, the trees look 3-D. Great job.

Janice - Thank you for your work this year. You were a great inspiration to get some UFOs done. Probably would not have done so without your support - and everyone elses support.

Talk about overdue... my major UFO to dig out and complete is a "wedding" gift about 10 years late. I have 3 of 4 seasons done, and hope to finish the spring quarter by the end of spring, and have it quilted and delivered by BIL's August birthday? Meanwhile, I have a top that needs its borders, but is going to LQG charity group. Since "give it away" counts, I have January's UFO taken care of!
