This is the time of year that most of us reflect on the ending year and whether by list or mental notes, make a plan for the new year. Last year around this time I joined Susan http://www.blackberrycreek.typepad.com/ to finish some UFO's. Susan, I must say, stayed on top of her list of 43 and finished 12 of them and made a start on a few others. I, on the other hand, didn't do so well. I completed the Batiks quilt for our family room. Finished piecing my fall quilt. That's it....but wait in all fairness I did finish a few new quilts.
The quilt for my friend at work, whose father passed away, made from his father's shirts. A star for his father, log cabin for home, red center for love and mother, one star for each child, pinwheels for each grandchild and great grandchildren. He loved the story the quilt told of his father's life.
