...Scrappy Stars - a finished quilt

A very long time ago Rachel hosted a beginning of the year quilt along focusing on quilt made from scraps. 

I started, and finished this quilt top.
Not long after I basted and started hand quilting.

Then for some reason it sat, for ages.

Late last year I finally finished it off! It gone straight into couch rotation.

Now, finally, with the prompt of a Scraptastic link up I've blogged it. 

I find it best not to rush things.

...2014 - FAL plans Q1

At the beginning of last year I wrote this post as well. And then made very little progress on the items for the rest of the year. You'll see most of the pictures are even the same.So I am going to try again - with hopefully some more achievable goals.

Linking up with Katy from the Littlest Thistle who is hosting the FAL this year.

1. Finish hand quilting and bind Bee {a little bit} Japanese Quilt

 2. Finish the Weekender bay for L, I've only got the outer and finishing steps to go but I should get to this one first as it was a 2012 Christmas gift!

3. DS Strips and Bricks quilting and binding

4. Giant Baby Pinwheel quilting and binding

5.Honerable mention - Subversive Swoon Valentines quilt - this one needs basting binding and quilting but I don't have the batting for it and it will get knocked off the list if it isn't finished before Valentine's day and the chances of that aren't looking good.
