My 52nd Completed Quilt

This is the last quilt, to meet my goal. And it is the last week of the year.  Actually posting on the last day of the year,  before going out to dance. This one is a UFO, about 3 + years old. It was all done but sewing on the binding. I saw a similar quilt in a quilt store. Mine wasn't as nice, and botched some of the quilting. I'm sure that's why I sat it  aside.  Done now.

My 51st quilt

Another bear quilt that I finished christmas day.

My 50th Quilt

I started working on this quilt and # 52 week of Christmas and finished both christmas  day.  One of the first quilts that I ever made was a twin quilt with a bear in the bed and it was between 2 dinosaurs. I have made several baby quilts with just the bear, but not in a long time. I revivedthe pattern  for a coworkers whose new grandson was just born and was named Bear.
     I discovered that the yellow fabric had some small holes in it after has i started quilting it.  Hence the toy bear I appliqued over them.  I actually done this on the long arm frame.  That was a nice save.

My 49th Quilt

Or My tree skirt. I wanted something quick to make. I don't have a tree skirt and because the tree is kind empty this  year. (We are doing  a mid winter family trip for christmas instead of presents.), the tree needed the extra decor. With this one done, I'm  only a week behind and only 3 quilts short of my goal. Next year my goal will be to clean my house.  Ì don't think I'll be posting about that goal.

My 48th Quilt

This quilt is called Tree Bells and is another UFO. I started this one 2 years ago and put it up because I had other christmas things to do. I had completed  the prep work and about a 1/3 of the applique done before I quit.  So it's finally finished.

My 47th Quilt

This was actually finished the first of October.  I was going on a week end trip and quickly made them one up to try  up with my goal.
