The last "13 in 2013" UFO is number:
November, being the start of the busy holiday season, often is not the best for quilters. But we have three finishes this month, plus my own.
Here is my finish for November.
It's from Brenda Henning's "Strip Therapy 7" and is called "Full Moon." This is quilt #48 pieced by me this year, I'm thinking I will make it to 52!
Irene was the first to submit her finish for November. She made this Christmas-sy lap quilt with leftovers from a Christmas stocking. Irene blogged about the quilt here.
Be sure to go to Sandi's blog to see all her 2013 UFO Finishes here. including her "extra credit" finish. November's is called "Kookaburra." She tells us:
Another pattern I purchased this year in January at the Road to California Quilt Show. Design is called Licorice Allsorts by Lydia Quigley. I’ve been on the lookout for black 30s fabrics all year. Kookaburra if you don't know is a bird native to Australia. It also happens to be the name of a candy manufacture there famous for it's black licorice.
Deb's November finish is from one of my favorite "scrap quilt" books, Quilts from the Heart by Karen Renaud. I often make one of Karen's quilts for a baby quilt, they're fast and easy but don't look it!
Look at this lovely "Arkansas Crossing" made by Deb and blogged here:
Ohmygosh, looking in my little book of "who won what," I see that all three of these quilters have won the UFO Parade giveaway -- and in the last three months. How funny! I think I should send some fat quarters to each of them, don't you?
I don't save your addresses, so if each of you will email your postal address to me, I'll go stash-diving for you. Tell me if there's a color or designer you particularly like, and if I have some fabric that fits the bill, that's what I'll send!
Yes! There will be a UFO Challenge for 2014. My Little Sailor, and blog co-author, has agreed to make us a new cover design for "Twelve Finishes in 2014." I just thought 14 might be a little too many!
