A friend of mine is expecting a baby in the New Year. They will be having a boy, so I decided on sea colors and a brick pattern. It only measures 30X40" so I will add a 2" border all around. The backing will be soft flannel and will be machine quilted.
When I look back on the year, I can't believe all we have accomplished and at the same time that it flew by so fast having a lot left unfinished. One of my goals each year is to complete UFO's abandoned in my basket. Even finishing one of these would be a great achievement. This year, however, was not to be so. I've had many starts and a couple quick finishes. This is a top completed for my friend in July. She didn't want to continue with it, so I took it off her hands, appliqued the squares, trimmed and finished the blocks, arranged them and sewed them together, added the borders and sent it on to her longarm quilter. She should get it back in the New Year.
