Quilting Update

I haven't posted anything quilt-related in ages. Of course, I haven't published much of anything here since August, so I guess that's no surprise. This will be a quickie because I have to go and finish reading my TBR book.

So, back when I had my surgery, I had a nice 6-week staycation. I did a fair bit of sewing on a variety of projects which is another way of saying I finished almost nothing. Here's one thing I did finish in November, just before I went back to work.
The leaf blocks are small so the whole thing is about 9" x 14". The blocks were from a little kit I purchased. The pattern is by Designers Workshop. I took a class once from the owner, Eileen Sullivan, a long, long time ago. She taught me more about color than anyone else ever has--in just one six-hour lesson. I have several of her patterns. The kit included just the fabric for the leaves. I raided my stash for the rest of it.

At Thanksgiving my sister gave me a bunch of her Christmas fabric. I came home and made this little table runner from a pattern I found in an old issue of Love of Quilting magazine.

So those were my last two finishes of 2015. That's a total of 10 for the year, most of them small. I probably started just as many additional projects. 2016 should be the year of UFOs (UnFinished Objects).

One more picture--even though it's only a finished top, not a fully quilted quilt (yet). I spent a good portion of my recovery working on the butterfly blocks in the outer border. I showed this before when it was in its early stages in 2014. Anyhow, I got the last of those butterfly blocks sewn on in November and December and added the final gray outer border the other night. It took almost 2 years and it'll probably be that long again before I'm ready to quilt it. It's large, about 75" x 75".
