Yep...right on the very last day of the month!
And that is why deadlines work for me. If I didn't join the Lovely Year of Finishes, and commit to finishing this project in January, it would still be in pieces in the UFO closet.
Here it is being quilted by my trusty old Brother 1500. It has been such a work horse machine for the last 12 years.
I tried a new (to me) quilting design for this flannel quilt - a variation of clam shells. The shell shapes on the center snowball blocks were easy and things went downhill from there! LOL
I think many (most!) of my shells are quite a bit wonky in places, and as I was quilting, I was thinking of ways to make it a little more organized and even the next time I try it.
But overall it was a fun and quick design to quilt and I am happy with it.
This is the backing, with lots of trees, and moose, and pinecones. The piece I bought wasn't quite wide enough, so I added a green strip on one side.
I realized as I was making up the scrappy binding that there are scraps of four different flannel projects in this quilt!
Hop over to the UFO link up to see the other projects that were finished in January.
