Happy New Year!
I managed to wrap up 2017 with a finish. This quilt project began with a February 2015 Bonnie Hunter workshop in San Antonio. At 73 X 81 inches it’s the largest project I’ve quilted since converting my HQ 16 to a sit-down model. It also took a lot longer than I thought it would, but it’s finally done. It seems I keep making the same mistake time and again. It would have been much easier to bind this quilt if I had not chosen to use a batik. The design is "Texas Tumbleweeds."
While the cutting table was still set up, I pin basted my scrappy bow tie quilt. Hopefully, its smaller size will make quilting it less of a wrestling match.
The last night of 2017 brought snow flurries. We did not get enough for a measurable accumulation, but for this part of the world, it was a noteworthy event.
We had a visitor just outside our back-yard fence recently. The dogs never noticed her and she lingered for a while undisturbed. We rarely see them this close.
