The Year in Review--Quilting

Each year as the count down for the new year begins the mass communications/news media will begin to air feature programs recapping the year.  They will talk about local, national and international events and the passing of famous or influential people.  As Thistle Manor will be ringing out the old and ringing in the new it seemed like an appropriate time to recap 2012.

First let's talk about what I completed.

Two Christmas quilts for AppleJack's grandsons.

Pottery Shards by Jo Morton (minus the quilting)

Another Joe Morton Little Women club--Goose Tracks minus the sashing and quilting.  I also completed Jo Morton Aunt Maude and Flying Geese 

Now for the unfinished:  Christmas Stars.  When the Jo Morton classes started work on the stars stopped.

This is the charm pack/stash reduction quilt.  As the weather outside is frightful, I will be spending the next few days working on this quilt.  A good way to ring out the old, ring in the new, and stay warm inside.

Jo Morton's Broken Dishes Quilt; Kits @ Country Sampler
Today I ordered this Jo Morton Broken Dishes kit and pattern from Country Sampler.  I am going to try triangle piecing paper for accuracy.  Another fun "little quilt" for Christmas decorating. 


  1. Broken Dishes is a cute little quilt. I've used the triangle piecing paper for larger blocks and liked the accuracy. You just have to take care when removing the paper.

  2. All are just lovely! I love seeing everything. Have fun with the new quilt kit!

  3. Pretty quilting! You were busy in 2012!

  4. Gosh you have acheived so much this year.

    No movement yet Betty.

    Happy New Year dear friend. I wish the New year brings you lots of happiness and joy. May God shower his abundant blessings upon you all year round.
