A couple of posts ago I mentioned that, as well as 2 finished quilts since the beginning of the year, I also managed to up my count of UFOs by 2. Well, latest count is three :-)
Single Irish Chain - just the two colours in this one
Arkansas Crossroads - obviously scrappy
and a Half Hexagon - just a little different to this one
Now all that's left to do is quilt them :-)

Another year added to the ever growing total - where do they all go ?
Just a minor celebration today with lunch here in the grounds of the Abbeye de Bon Repo, and I have to tell you I had a dessert to die for ! Goats cheese mousse with kiwi fruit and blackcurrant coulis topped with fresh local strawberries - I wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was absolutely divine , so bang goes the diet again !
Main celebration starts next week with a holiday on and around the Mediterranean in one of these
Well, a girl's got to find some sunshine somehow hasn't she :-)

At last enough dry weather to manage a couple of photos of my 2 finished quilts for 2013
Some time back I was given a bag of plaid fabric samples roughly 3" x 4 1/2" which I cut into 2 1/2" squares and made this version of a Log Cabin/ Confetti quilt
The white areas are quilted with one of Patsy Thompson's Fast & Furious designs, plaid squares are cross hatched and the borders are feathered. Just about lap top size this will be a donation quilt.
Second finish is an old friend which I wrote about here
All over quilted with Pajama Quilter (Dawn Ramirez) Wonky Feathers this one was a bit of a challenge, but as Dawn gives you permission to make the feathers as wonky as you like ( and you better believe that there are some beauties in this quilt !) it turned out OK in the end. I think this will be staying home - at least for a little while :-)
