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.

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.

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.
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.

Another UFO: an eye spy quilt. I'm not sure when I started this one (greater than 5 years ago,) or why I sat it aside half quilted and then misplaced it. I suspect that I needed my sewing machine for something else. This was the 5th eye spy quilt that I had made. So in my quest to complete my challenge, another UFO is no longer an UFO.
I completed this quilt in October. I haven't posted this one because it was a gift for a Co worker. (Also, I'm just behind posting). I found all the components on the Internet looking at the lovely quilts there. My friend had shown me s store quilt that had a tree, owl and a fox and ask if I could do that. This is my version.
