January Finish Done! Yes! 8-)

My Criss-Cross Applesauce Mystery Quilt, led by Myra Harder of Blue Meadow Designs, is all done! Finished! Yahoo! (doesn't look square because of the slight angle that I took the photo at) This is my finish for the "One Project a Month Challenge" put on my May and Kris. Their links are in yesterday's post if you care to check it out. I best contact them to let them know... I am calling this finish my "Easter" table topper. Made in good time for a change! Easter, I'm ready! 8-)

I am committing to finish my Log Cabin wall-quilt for the challenge's month of February. Class for this was taken about 2-3 years ago, so it is high time I finish the applique, stitchery, and all on it, and get it up on one of my walls! Don't you think? 8-)

I will also start my quilting on one of the quilts I sandwiched last week, and perhaps be able to get a second one done in February... Who knows? I have a quilt retreat at the end of this month that may help me along... Unless of course I choose to do some piecing there... Which is more likely. 8-)

For those of you with young children, grandchildren, and daycare children, here is a link to a very cute Valentine craft... Corinna, maybe something for your bunch?

I am thinking I will be taking a break from blogging this weekend due to the new computer coming tonight, and some file cleanup I wish to do on this here pc relic. 8-)

Have a good weekend everyone! 8-)

Let me be the first, but I'm sure not the last, to say how lovely that is! You did a nice job on your little quilt Myra.

Can't wait to see your others finished too!

Have fun with the new computer and we'll catch up with you next week.

Myra, I absolutely LOVE the applique on your log cabin quilt! That is going to be so rich and elegant when it is finished! Are you going to hand or machine quilt it?

Erica said...

Congratulations Myra on completing your quilt for the month of January! I completed my quilt for the monthly challenge also - it feels great getting a UFO completed, doesn't it? Your creations are lovely!
Happy Stitching,
Cheers Erica

Myra, I don't remember seeing the log cabin quilt before. It is beautiful. Sounds like you will have a busy February. If you wait til the last day to put the binding on, don't forget Feb. only has 28 days! Congrats on the new PC. I only get a new one when the one I am using blows up.

Corinna said...

Wow Myra! I'm impressed at the fact that you finished an Easter project in January! I would have been stitching the binding on Good Friday! lol
Thanks for showing me that Valentine's craft. It's actually one that I planned on doing with the kids already! Great minds think alike!
