Double Dozen Quilt Done!

In November, 2012 I took a class at Linda Z's with my Aunt Bonnie taught by Kaye England using her Double Dozen pattern book.  I have been posting about my progress over the past year as I worked on finishing this.

I took the quilt top to Pieceful Gatherings in Fox River Grove, Il to be quilted in early September and got it back a few weeks ago.  Tonight I finished sewing down the binding!

I am very happy with the quilting as the quilter did flowers in the large and small white block areas. The sample we saw in class had something similar and I think it makes the quilt

This was the largest and most complicated quilt I have done and it feels really good to have it done.  

It has now taken up residence on the back of our family room couch so that I can use it on cold winter nights!!

Quilted runner #3
Quilted Craftsy Block of the Month quilt
Started labels for all quilts

Back to Square One Mystery Quilt -November Done!

The November clue is to sew together the log cabin and star blocks to make the next border.  

I was pretty tired from work and taking care of my father this week so wanted to do some "easy" sewing. So I thought that putting together this border would be good to do.  

I am very happy with how this looks and excited to finish it next month!
