Happy New Year Everyone!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!
I am sorry I haven't posted in a week; however, with the holidays and traveling I've been a little busy. But I did manage to do some quilting this week. I quilted the Yellow Brick Road flannel quilt that I had posted a while back and now all that has to be done is the binding. I sewed some of the winding ways blocks together ( these were on my last post). Hopefully next week I will have these block all together and a top will be born. I also have been gathering together 30's fabrics for a new quilt that I will be making for a show this year.

I did finish quilting my sister in law's quilt for her the day before Christmas. This quilt was from a class we both took with Carol Doak in 2002. It is from her Easy Stash book. I have my quilt posted in my sidebar and had gotten it done a little faster than Shirley. She just finished it! It came out beautiful....all those years of waiting paid off.

That is one of my resolutions for this year is to finish all those UFO's!! I have very many unquilted tops that need to be done. I just have to find a way to sneak them onto my Gammill in between customers quilts. I will also be busily cutting into my stash!! I would love to know what your quilting resolutions are for 2008. Post your comment with the resolutions and we'll have to see how we all do over this year!!

A bit late, but Happy New Year to all! Can you believe that it is 2008? This is Shirley Swenson, Jackie's sister-in-law from Rhinebeck, NY.

By the way, that Easy Stash Quilt class that Jackie and I took with Carol Doak was in November 2001, not 2002.

When I showed the completed quilt at my guild meeting on Saturday, I said that I was going to name it Seven Year Christmas Stars, but someone suggested a better name: Seven Year Stitch. Good idea! :-)
