|Circle of Squares|
I ended the year getting my Circle of Squares quilt top sewn together. It was such a fun project started in June 2016 and used up 160 colourful 2.5" squares with no repeats... a great scrap collection! It will go on the UFO list for finishing in 2019. I already have my quilting design in mind, so maybe this will be first on the list for January.
My biggest RSC accomplishment this year was finishing the Tied Up in Knots quilt. I worked on this quilt for 6 years and sewed 672 little 1.5" scraps into these blocks.
I can't even tell you how much I love this quilt because it is uniquely me and combined all my favourite things ... from finding the block idea in my favourite 100 blocks magazine (pattern by Tina Curran issue #3), to the use of tiny scraps, to the scrappy backgrounds, to the machine quilting designs I created. It is an example of how participating in the RSC has helped me to create projects I love, with the encouragement of the scrappy quilters each week at the link up.
My other big RSC accomplishment was finishing all 40 Squared Away 5" sampler blocks which used billions of small scraps. I plan to make more blocks in 2019 to make this sampler quilt bigger. Thanks again to Mari and Angela for gifting this project to the RSC community!
Thank you to Angela for years of RSC adventures! I have a true appreciation for the time commitment of hosting a weekly linkup since I know how much work goes into it. You have such a busy life and we are grateful that you continue to do this for us!
