Thumbs up January Finishes

I am finally smarter than the average duck! I finally figured out posting a pic on the new format--Yeahhhh

I am doing double duty for these two from last month. These two also coiunt toward this years Moratorium...

The first is about 4-months old. I really need to pay attention to my count when I am putting these together. I chain stitch the rows leaving the connecting threads all the way across, then sew the strips together. I was 2 squares short of the second to middle diagonal and did not find out until the second to the last block per row. I refused to take it completely out. I just had to find a replacement and fix the other "16". Now you know why it sat for 4 months.

The second is one of two that have hand embroidered squares from a friend. It is about 7-years old. The third picture is a close up of one of the blocks. Since I tweaked this one (adding the sashing), the second one is on hold until I can come up with a more pleasing layout.

Default My first February finish...

This was done late on Saturday the first.

This is one of two Saturday Samplers--same design, different colorways. Of course I wanted it larger than it originally finished. The final two borders were giving me fits, so of course it was not finished last month. There are biased edges in both, so you can imagine the aggravation--even with lots of starch.

The first is an overall pic and the second is of the pieced border.

Way to go Mcyclemad! I like to sew blocks in a "web", too. It holds everything together and I don't "lose" pieces, but when I goof up, naughty words follow!

I fully understand, and you are not alone with what usually follows.

I managed to finish my January UFO on February 1st. I got the binding hand stitched on my Double Irish Stars quilt from Piecing the Past Quilts. I love this quilt. I am finding it much more difficult to hand stitch bindings any more so my next quilt im going to try the flange method.

Thank you for the grand baby congratulations. It is pretty neat that his early arrival has a fun birthdate.

Motorcyclemad and ckcowl: Congratulations on your wonderful finishes!

grann of 6: That is a fun birth date for your Great Dane.
