with a few days left...

i'm trying to get as many wips done from this year as possible. this is my second 9 patch. this took me awhile because i definately didn't like it as much as my first!! oh well.
but this our weather cold up here this freshed squeezed quilt has really brightend thing up!!
i used up as much of this fabric line that i had. i think i have a half yard left. it will go with other lines though.
i used orange thread which was REALLY fun to work with. and i LOVE the binding. this quilt needs to go to the right person. someone who LOVES bold colors!!! :)

lastly, i'm in the process of stippling my string quilt and then i'm ready to pin my pink and orange quilt. i'm feeling pretty good about going into next year. i have so few wips!! i still have some but not as many! :) and yes, i did say i was stippling the string quilt. boring i know but i practiced some other techniques and i just don't have the hang of it yet and believe it or not i think stippling with be okay on this! well at least i'm hoping so! hope you had a GREAT Christmas and have a happy new years!! :)

  9. I like your 9-patch, I've been wanting to try one in just a color or two like that. I've found there are lots of fun and relatively simple quilting designs, it just takes practice. Good luck! =)
