After I did my year end mosaics, I finished 2 more quilts and remembered one that I hadn't blogged about. So I did 26 quilts of various sizes, which works out to one quilt, every two weeks. Not too shabby. I think 3 of those quilts were started in 2010, but they were smaller ones anyway. Without further ado, I give you the last two finishes of 2011.
I made the tops for these two quilts in 2010 when I was working out the pattern for my Christmas tree quilt. They sat for more than a year, before I made my Christmas to do list and pulled them out as possible sell on etsy quits. I didn't get them done in time to sell on etsy for Christmas, and I can't decide if I should put them on etsy as winter quilts, or just hold on to them for next Christmas.
I quilted them both with a combination of strait lines and machine embroidered snowflakes. My embroidery machine and I have been at odds with each other for a month, but we've recently made up. I changed the type of needles I was using and suddenly it works like a dream. Apparently, my embroidery machine hates Klasse needles, but it LOVEs the Brewer titanium needles that are twice the price. If any my of my readers would like to make a home for either of these quilts, just leave a comment or email me.
I'll give the 26th quilt of the year it's own post, as I originally intended to.
