Finished Roundabout OMG

One OMG for December at Elm Street Quilts was to quilt and bind my Roundabout Quilt. It is done and I am now happily using it on my couch for Christmas.

My original post was here. I enjoyed the Roundabout Quilt Along at Happy Quilting Melissa. The QAL kept me going to get this quilt completed. I'll admit that I do have a few quilt tops sitting in a stack. Hopefully, I'll get to them in 2018.

Sparkle Quilt

I finished my Roundabout quilt for the Quilt Along at Happy Quilting Melissa. This is the first Quilt Along that I have been able to join so I'm excited that I was able to finish it for the parade. I had these "Sparkle" Christmas prints and I added a couple extra solids.

The backing is, also, Amanda Murphy Animals.  I used the light green for the binding. I just quilted a grid of wavy lines.  I learned a few new things in this quilt along, such as chain piecing and sewing curves. Plus, it was neat how the diamonds are created when the blocks came together. I like how the diamonds have a different fabric/color on each side.

I am enjoying having this quilt on my couch this year for Christmas. 

Merry Christmas!

Looking forward to a finish, just in time for Christmas

My OMG for December is to quilt and bind my Roundabout Quilt for Melissa's Quilt Along. I am thrilled that I have made it this far.

My quilt top is complete so, of course, I need to finish it up! Looking forward to a finished quilt for Christmas.

Crimson and Clover Train Case

Finished my November One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. My original post was here: November OMG - Crimson and Clover

This pattern is by Sew Sweetness. I used Blue Carolina and pieced it from a charm pack. This is the medium size. This will be nice to use to keep make up items, etc in it, possibly, for a short trip. I will be posting this, also, to Bag It .
