It's Saturday afternoon and the first week of 2022 has come and is almost gone. What's that old adage -- start the year the way you mean to go? I might have set the mark a little too high?
On Monday/Tuesday I pulled out the folding table and layered up three small quilt tops and two table runners (with Harry's help, of course).
Two of the quilts were lurking in a bin of UFO's I had set aside for my charity group over the course of the past year, but when I re-homed all those supplies during the fall they must have been hiding?!? Since I'm not going to lead a charity quilt making group any longer, I was peeved with myself for overlooking the projects, but on second thought, I'll still make charity quilts on my own. So as a kick-start for the year, I finished piecing the easiest one (took an entire afternoon?!?) and organized backing for it and a second top that was already finished.
The third quilt top was the only top I pieced in 2021. I used a newish pattern, Vanity Flair, from Karen Ackva at www.easypatchwork.de who quilts and teaches in Germany. You can find it in her ETSY shop HERE. It's a sweet little quilt and I used up most of one of the (irresistible) layer cakes in my stash. I cut it out in July . . . .
