WooFa for January

January was CHaLLenGe month #1...

I made the binding AnD the label earlier in the month...

This quilt top had been finished for quite a  l-o-n-g  time but needed to be quilted... & I was NeVeR going to get to do it. I sent it off to Fiona earlier this month for custom quilting... & by the way it's wonderful... so I got to actually ADD the binding & the label this month.


Although it's been hidden away until now, the quilt is now ready for next Xmas... but ... as it's been waiting for YeARs... another 11 months won't hurt.

The Night Before Christmas quilt is finally completed...
so that's 1 project ticked off  The WOOFA LIST... ✔
AnD
also an item for 1XiAM too... found HeRe.

AND... I also made a gOOd start on Miss S's quilt this month too...
I had the fabric picked out... the backgrounds cut & the 2 x sashing strips all labelled... but hadn't started any of the applique'.


During the month I traced out the most of the templates... then I fused appropriate fabric for the large center piece block & completed the blanket stitching on it as well...


Then I worked on Blocks 6 & 8 and I'm happy to report....they're finished too...


so GReaT progress was made on another challenge this month as well.

Love `y`our night before Christmas` finish. I should get back to mine which I was doing with a friend. She`s not been well so I think I`d best get mine going again by myself!! Happy Stitching.
