Flaunt Your Finish: January 2013


Here's a look at some of the projects our OKCMQG members have completed this month. If you have a project you finished in the month of January, don't forget to link up and Flaunt Your Finish!


As a guild, we are participating in a Pincushion Swap at QuiltCon. Elizabeth always seems to be on the ball and she's already completed her pincushion.  It measures about 5.5" square and is filled with crushed walnut shells. 


Elizabeth gave this green version (below) away on her blog, Pieceful Life. She wondered if she was in a rut since they are alike, but I think it's fun to see the same item made up different ways. I'm so far behind that I missed seeing the giveaway on her blog. I totally would have entered.


TIP:  When making several pincushions, check your local pet store for crushed walnut shells! 


Several guild members are also participating in a Madrona Road Challenge. Those participating decided to make mini-quilts from the fabric they were given. Here's Stephanie's mini, which is completely adorable!


Also by Stephanie, is this Union Jack made from hexies. Remember, all those hexies were sewn together by hand. They are pretty small and there must be a gazillion of them! Amazing!


Next up is Christi's quilt. She used the Gypsy Girl fabric line by Lily Ashbury for Moda Fabrics. I love photos of quilts hanging on a line. The fabrics and colors in this quilt make me want to go on a picnic in the park.

<sigh>

Spring will come....Spring will come....


But until Spring, here's another beautiful quilt by Christi to snuggle up in. The fabrics in this quilt are California Girl by Fig Tree, also for Moda Fabrics....yep, we quilters love our Moda.


Okay, so technically this doesn't count as a "finish", but I felt sorry for old Amanda. She began collecting fabrics for this quilt (twin-size for her son) about 2.5 years ago and she's been slowly working on it over the last year. She has a few ideas, but is still trying to decide how she's going to quilt it. She used the pattern "Chain Reaction" from Cluck Cluck Sew. It is seriously cute and I know her son is going to love it!


Link up and share your finish!
