First Finish of 2015



It's a small quilt, but it's a finished quilt! The photo is a little off kilter, but so am I!

This is the Quiltbug New Year's Day mystery called "A New Beginning".  You can see more photos of this pattern here






I used up three small pieces of batting for this quilt, which were joined together with the Heat Press tape. So quick and easy.
This project was a fun way to start off the year and get back into some machine quilting. I used my free motion foot and quilted some arc shapes, making as few stop/starts as possible.

Quiltbug is offering a Super Bowl Sunday mystery too. It is called Neighbourhood Garden Mystery and the link to the fabric requirements are here.
Are you in?!?!

    No mysteries for me, no way, no how (trying to convince myself). : )

  9. Congratulations Kathy! It is lovely. I took all the info down on Jan 1 or 2 (can't remember now) to make the table runner and I haven't started it yet so I think I will pass on the next mystery. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
