let's wrap this year up

A few finishes not yet blogged:

Daily News, 63" by 80", my own random piecing:
 I used all stash for the front, prints and batiks.
Quilted using different motifs, and some ruler work.
Why "Daily News?
Remember the silly riddle: what's black and white and red all over? The newspaper!
Photographed at the beautiful Bethabara Park, in Winston-Salem, NC.

And my small stuff:
A 16" by 20" Christmas pillow cover. I free-handed the lettering using the satin stitch on my Sapphire. Then random piecing in red and teal (love this combination!)

And another:

A 24" square snowflake. Fusible applique, free-motion swirls. Leaving this out all winter.

My winter table scape featuring the 22" Poinsettia block from sew kind of wonderful:

Leaving this out all winter, too! So happy 2014 to all of you!
