Sixteen-Patch and Pinwheels is now finished:
A glimpse of the quilting by Catherine, which doesn't show up on the front at all. I told her to do a meander, and this was the result!
This is UFO #29 that I finished this year.
And LASTLY, "Difference of Opinion", which is also now quilted and bound:
Do you see the large exclamation point coming down that vertical sashing? I might just enhance that a little at some time.
Catherine's quilting on these borders followed the geological strata in the batik fabric.
And this is my last UFO finish for 2010, number 30. Wow, I impressed myself! My goal was to finish or get rid of two a month. I wasn't that consistent each month, but I have surpassed the goal of 24. And, in fact I got rid of some that I didn't count.
I am going to be starting 2011 with 16 UFOs, and only two of those were started in 2010. I did keep the part of my goal that was to finish all but three 2010 starts. How on earth did I manage to stick to this idea when I have so often failed? I guess it helped to put it on my blog, share it with Finn, and even declare it to my quilting bee.
Right now, I'm NOT ready to commit to such a plan for next year! Finishing more UFOs is going to be in my plan, but not such a push.
Maybe by tomorrow I'll have a plan for 2011.
Now that these projects are finished, I am back on the next step of Bonnie Hunter's mystery, "Roll, Roll Cotton Boll".
The directions for joining most of the parts arrived this morning, and I have constructed a few of the first blocks.
Because I chose to substitute blue for pink, and navy for red, I think this quilt will turn out to be acceptable to a male.
