All from stash with the exception of two yellow fat quarters.
All blocks built on the WWII era White Rotary shown a couple of posts back.
All assembly on my dream machine Janome 8900.
What did I learn this year?
I relearned finger pressing. I used to do it in the 80's don't know why I quit. Huge time saver. Final press when assembled, perfect. I'll take it.
Did I try something new? Leaders and Enders. I got 132 3" nine patches finished and a couple dozen partially completed while making Easy Street blocks at the same time. Easy and a brilliant idea...if piecing on a machine without an automatic thread cutter. I found trying to do them on the Janome was more trouble than it was worth, I love that tread cutter.
A first? Using black and white prints. We all have them, and most of us pet them and put them back. My impression in the quilt? Wormy :) Too many things going too many directions. I'd still give it overall an A- and am glad they found some use.
Did I fail at something? Flying Geese. There are about 20 points cut off and that makes me very cross, my skills are better than that. So I'll do 50 more as practice. Because face it, they are great at getting the eye to move across the quilt.
It's lovely up close so I can live with it if you can...
My plan for Bonnie Hunter's 2013 mystery? If we are so fortunate to be gifted with one, I'll be piecing on my Singer 66-18 converted to treadle. It has the cutest little feet. And makes the most soothing sound.
See you then~
and I'm always in at Quirkeries
