Happy 2013

Welcome to a wonderful new year! 2013 is full of promise and opportunities... I know it's going to be great!

Celebrating and relaxing with my family over the holiday break has been wonderful and very soothing to my stressed out craziness of late.
I've been so busy with school and work that I didn't complete the challenge to make quilts for all of my kids for Christmas. Fortunately, there's always next year so now I have a head start! 
(In my defense, I did issue that challenge to myself before deciding I was going back to school ;P)

I did finish some quilts recently but in my haste to get them to their new homes I forgot to take pictures of most of them! I did remember  to take a few pics of some lovely Irish chains we quilted up before Christmas. They both are so lovely but had completely different stories. The first one was made by a new quilting friend in Texas. She said she is pretty new to quilting but I couldn't tell... her piecing is just fabulous!

The second quilt was an antique top. My friend's grandmother started it 70 years ago! Her sister recently finished the piecing and binding. They gave it to their mother for Christmas and as you can imagine, she was thrilled to receive such a special memory of her mother from her daughters. A lovely generational quilt :)

I’m also going to be working on my BOM quilt, it’s due next month and I still only have 3 blocks done, yikes! I’m going to have some late nights playing catch up!

BOM quilt, remember me?
Started in July... due in February... gulp!
