January Done

Well so much for good intentions, but I am finally posting a Jan. update. Facebook is just  easier . Plus , I get comments in FB land. The first 2 quilts were completed in 2012. Scroll along to see the my newest project.
 This is a quilt finished in 2012 , it is a gift so no mention of who(m?) gets it. It was paper pieced from strips from an exchange of 3" strips my guild did about 3 years ago. When I take it to show and tell I bet I am one of the only participants who has used their strips.
 This is a 3-d Bowtie Block . I am very into 3-D in quilts but not so much in movies .
Check out the instructions at Delaware Quilts.
 This is called a 2 Fabric Quilt and it fabulously easy and fun to make. The squares are 8" and the strips are 2.5".
This is a Fons and Porter design and I loved it so much I didn't change a thing about the design, rare for me. Right now it is hanging out on the design wall of a friend. I hope to get the top sewn this week.
