First 2013 Finish and First 2013 Start

Well, almost finished! I just have to sew down the binding but this is my first finish of 2013 even though I started it in 2012. This was fun to make and easy-just half square triangles.

I did make the cream part of the triangles a bit more interesting by using up a pile of 2 1/2 inch strips left over from a previous project and sewing them together and "making" some new fabric. I think it gives this quilt more texture and interest.

Yesterday was a snowy day here so I was not going anywhere so after deciding resistance was futile, I cut up many strips, all from scraps, and have joined in on the Scrappy Trip Along.

I have loved seeing all the quilts people are making and after seeing Monica's post I decided it was time to join. I love scrap quilts and I need to reduce the scraps I have so I am in. Monica's looks more planned than mine but I love all the solids she is using. I may have to add some in to mine. So who else has jumped in the Scrappy Trip Along pool?


  1. Your first finish is gorgeous. Makes me think of summer. I love the scrap quilt idea, I mgiht have to consider this!! Hugs!

  2. You have been working hard! Love your projects.

  3. I love your first finish and how you pieced the fabric to make a new piece. I'll be checking out the Scrap quilting.

  4. Congratulations on the lovely finish. That is a great way to begin new year!
    The scrappy trip looks like fun. I'll bet a sewing machine would make quick work of those blocks.

  5. Love your finish! I joined in on the scrappy trip too but I used stash fabric instead and think I may do another and really do it scrappy this time :)


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
