First Finish of the Year

As we finished out 2013, I was working on Tapestry using the wonderful Barbara Brackman fabrics Morris Apprentice. It's the easiest quilt in the world to make; after all it consists of large hour glass blocks. I do know how to drag out a project, don't I?


Well, I did have a little something going on to occupy my time, if you recall...

 
I probably should have been a bit more deliberate in the placement of the blocks to do a better job of distributing colors more evenly. I see imbalance now; I did not when I had it laid out on the bed.
 

It's good to have Tapestry finished. It was fun to do, and I loved working with those gorgeous fabrics. There are some leftovers, so you may see them showing up in something one of these days.

Now, though, I'm ready to move on to my next project! It's a new year, and I'm feeling energized! I have been working on some other things that are both challenging and fun. I will be back tomorrow to show you one of them!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
