I finished this quilt a couple of years ago, and sold from my Etsy shop at etsy.com/shop/quiltdesignsbycandac The person that bought it ordered a second one this year.
This quilt was a small class sample that I made to give students taking my Pineapple Storm class the option of starting a smaller quilt. I machine quilted this one myself. Something I don't do very often, but I am trying to do more of with small quilts.
The next two quilts are borderline cases. The tops are finished, and Regina has them. The are waiting to be quilted, and don't even really have proper names yet. One you will notice is rather similar to Tangerine Twist. It is the quilt that Karen saw in progress that was the jumping off point for Tangerine Twist.
I made this top while I was making the pattern for Native Harvest. It is the same pattern, but I did not go as wide with this one. I meant for it to be more of a lap size. I think these proportions are actually better. I always thought that Native Harvest was a bit squat.
I am especially looking forward to getting this quilt back. I want to get it bound in time for my next trunk show.
The main things I wanted to do in 2013 that I did not accomplish were things I wanted to do with my blog. I wanted to work up to 2 postings a week. I barely averaged one a week this year, and there were a few times when I went over a week without a post. I also want to add a gallery tab to the top of the blog. Maybe start adding a couple of free patterns. Hopefully I will get to that in 2014.
My most urgent goals for the beginning of 2014 are to finish what I have started in reorganizing this sewing room. I have 2 custom orders that are priorities. I have hit a snag on my fussy cut quilt.
I think it needs more variety, so I am looking for different blocks to replace the alternate blocks. Maybe I just need to do something different with the setting triangles. I would really also like to get patterns made for my Arabesque, and A Maze Zing quilts before my Arkansas trip in March.
