Goodbye 2008 ~ Hello 2009!

Well I finished 2008 in quilty style! The last 3 days of the year I put borders onto 3 different UFO tops, so they are all now ready for quilting! Here are the pictures 🙂

This is my Scrappy Bargello, which was started on Superbowl Sunday 2008 during the Bargello Bowl on the quiltville chat list. It’s a Bonnie Hunter pattern and I used a FQ bundle from Buggy Barn’s Sherbet fabric line. I am absolutley THRILLED with this top, I will be keeping this one for myself 🙂

Here’s a top I made during a quilt retreat in Spring 2007. The pattern is called Wanderlust and I used a pack of fat quarters from Maywood’s He Loves Me fabric line. I used the coordinating border print for the borders and the corners are mitered.

And finally, this is the New Year’s Eve 2008 Ann Smith mystery that I tested back in October/November of this year. The pattern was for a square quilt and I’m not a huge fan of square quilts, so I added an extra border on the top and bottom only in order to make th top oblong. I used musical instrument fabric that has been in the stash for ages and this top will be quilted and donated to the High School Band Boosters as a fundraiser on January 18th. I’m very happy with the result!

Now I’m off to work a little more on my Mosaic Tiles Christmas Mystery. I’d like to get the top finished before I go back to work on Monday.

Happy 2009 everyone!



  1. Wow! Look at you! I like the addition of the top and bottom music borders on the last one. If I could win that one I would not have to make a graduation quilt for m cousin’s son – he wants a music theme, except that he wants primarily drums. I don’t know where I’m going to find drum fabric!

  2. Happy New Year Beth. Wow you have been busy with your UFO’s, the quilt tops are lovely – well done. Relax and enjoy the rest of your holiday break. Hugs Jx
