My Last Finish for 2016


Here it is, the last finish for 2016!




This little quilt was made using the Runway block I designed for Quiltmaker's 100 blocks last fall.  I sewed up four of the blocks to show how they look put together and made a wall hanging.  The block is paper pieced and you can read more about it here.



 The piece measures about 30" square.  I plan on hanging it in my sewing room with some of my other minis and wallhangings.  I might just have to make a bigger quilt from this block one of these days - I really like the design.


 I even got a little fancy with the quilting!

I wasn't sure I was going to find time to get this one quilted up, but I realized that this could be the first time in MANY years that I started a new year WITHOUT a stack of quilt tops of my own to quilt up.

Yep...at this point every quilt top I have finished is quilted and bound!
Woo Hoo!!!

Well done on the finish. I have about 12 quilts that are basted ready to quilt. They will get done one day.

Congrats on getting your 'to be quilted' pile gone!! I wish I could but I won't make it. But I am trying really hard to just get all the donation ones done at least. I love your color combo on this quilt.

Wowsers! I have about 25 quilt tops ready to be quilted. Having none is Amazing!! Congrats on a lovely finish. This one is very striking with that gorgeous blue!

Congratulations! Starting the New Year without a stack has got to be a great feeling for you! I love your mini. The colors are gorgeous, the design is amazing, but the black makes it for me! You should make a quilt with this design. I'm seeing so many possibilities for you, not that you need any help in the idea department!! Happy New Year my dear! I've enjoyed getting to know you more and more this year!

Yay for your and your clean quilting slate for 2017! (I have just one project that needs to be quilted -- I consider that a success!) All the best to you in the new year!

Michele said...

I like it too and you now have a whole world of new possibilities ahead.
