December Goal Party – A Lovely Year of Finishes

Well, we made it! It is now December. Thirty-one days and we can kiss 2013 good-bye!  I have one very simple goal for December, to finish up Christmas presents. I am giving 2 quilts this year, both to two very special people, neither of whom have a clue!  The first is the one I finished last month. The second was quilted was quilted by Vicki from Orchid Owl Quilts. She did such an amazing job. All that is left is to trim it up and bind it. The hard part will be trimming it because…IT IS HUGE! It fits on my queen sized bed.

    That quilting looks beautiful! I have a Christmas pressie and a Secret Santa gift to do, and that’s it…

  2. So fun!
    Is it too early to ask if you are considering this for next year too?!?!
    I have really enjoyed it and hope to work on 12 more UFO’s next year!

    Vicki’s quilting is amazing, when I grow up I hope to be able to quilt that good when I grow up. Your quilt is pretty awesome too.

    At this point, I couldn’t even tell you how many months I finished! =) I’m glad to have made whatever progress there has been, though. It’s all things I wouldn’t have done if it weren’t for the project. It adds accountability! Thank you for running this all year long. I know it’s more work for you and Shana, but it’s obvious a lot of us used the help! Love your pictured quilt. Someone is really lucky – two someones!

  5. PennyDog says:

    Yep mine will be a gift once I get the blogpost written šŸ˜‰

  6. Sharon says:

    Your quilting is a wonderful backdrop to those pretty colors! Such nice combinations!

  7. Phew, made it just in time. Did the same thing with the November finish, even though I had it done way before the end of November. I’m not great about remembering deadlines.
