Quick and Final Finish for 2013 . . .


My Shower Shuffle is done! I don't think I could have picked a better project for wrapping up my sewing year.



This is Lifetime Quilt #122
The Inspiration for this pattern came from Camille Roskelley from Thimble Blossoms .  The color palette is from Carmile's pattern Puddling Jumping and the blocks are from Camille's Craftsy video, 25 Half-Square Triangle Blocks.
The majority of the fabric is April Showers by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
This quilt finished at 75" x 75",  each pieced hst block finished at 15".
This quilt has approximately 549 pieces.

This was a fun project start to finish.  I sewed along with an imaginary friend which made it all the more fun.   

I wish you a safe, happy, and heathy New Year.  I plan to take a look back at my 2013 sewing year later this week, but am really looking forward to another rewarding and challenging 2014.

Thanks for stopping by, it's wonderful to have so many folks to "talk" quilts with, that's been the best part of my year, truly.

  8. I love it I love hst ! now I am thinking again I made a lot of hst from the flying geese units on the 2 swoons that I finished thought I would sew them matching colors together now I might do some of these they are 2 1/2 squares and so cute after I got them all squared up 8 per block and I did 2 so I have 288 I think I hated to waste those little triangles
