A New Year's Finish

First of all, Happy New Year to you all. I hope this new year will bring everyone peace, health, happiness and prosperity.

And this is my first finish of the New Year. If I hadn't been sick, I would have finished this before the 1st. But life sometimes has other plans. But is it is done, and done is good. You can't see the whole quilt, but I was too tired (and lazy) to get the stand out. This top was made by my friend's mother...the same one that did the penguins I showed you a couple months ago.

The next one is loaded and ready to go. After that one, the next 4 in a row are for shows. We are coming into our show season here in Southwest Florida so it's going to be busy for a few weeks!
My goal for the new year is to schedule in time for my own projects. I really didn't do that this past year and I really missed doing my own work. So this year I get plotted into the schedule too! And to start that off, I have booked no customer work for the month of February. That month will be all about me!


  1. It looks great and I love the quilting around the bear. I guess we were both working today!

  2. Deb
    the quilt is lovely and your quilting is divine! I love your cats too, I have a birman/himalayan which is a 'wannabee ragdoll'.. he is very naughty, and loves nothing more than laying on quilts!


  3. The quilting is great! I especially like how you did the trees.

    I also scheduled my own quilts in this year; one per month. We'll see how long that lasts.

  4. Happy New Year to you too Deb! The quilting is wonderful....I'm glad you are taking time for your stuff too. :)

  5. I love the quilting you have done on this. Very cute quilt!

  6. I love the quilting on this one especially the little sailboats on the lake

  7. Wow De, thats cool... Loving the sailboats so small:)

  8. Thank you for sharing pictures of your beautiful quilting.
    On one side it is nice to have some work, on the other it is nice to have time for one´s self. It is not always easy to find the right balance. It seems though that you are taking the right path to it! Take care.

  9. Hello! I am a portuguese grand mother of 4 boys. I love the patchworks and your works are very beautifull.I paint on china and like "découpage".
    God bless you and Happy New Year.
