Off To A Great Start!

Holidays behind us, and lots of  unfinished projects to complete................

First on my agenda was a Mystery Quilt started in 2009 with the Coleman Quilt Guild.  It was a "fussy cut" placed on-point.  The finished product called for large over-sized triangles in each corner, but I opted to place the squares in line for the purposes of a quick completion.  However, this top was placed on the back burner and finally got some attention this month.  It was hand-pieced and machine quilted.

A second project was also started a few years ago as a 2010 Block of the Month in Brownwood.  The original BOM was done in primary colors on black background.  As I completed each month's block, I did a second block in the blues and purples on black. The blocks are hand-pieced.  The sashing and borders were added this year, as well as the machine quilting.
