A Lovely Year of Finishes - February Goal Setting Party

Hard to believe we are into February already - and here in New Zealand we are on February 2nd.

One of my goals from January has had to be transferred to February, my Fractured quilt should have been completed last month but wasn't so fingers crossed for this month.
I am hoping to complete the last seven blocks for my "Fruit Salad" quilt and finish up my "New York Blooms" these last two will also need posting to 15 Minutes Play which I take part in.


No borders will be added to Fractured, it's busy enough and I have to confess I'm not a huge fan of borders. I appreciate that some quilts would just not look good without having a border but if I can get away without putting them on that suits me fine.

Fruit Salad

New York Blooms

 Not sure what I will do regarding bordering Fruit Salad, it does need something, it will be four by four block setting and possibly I'll just go with the Aboriginal Dot, which is a more attractive green "in the flesh" than the photo shows.

New York Blooms will not have the Subway fabric top or bottom, I'm just going to bind the whole thing with the pink fabric and I have some pretty jazzy fabric set aside for the backing.

These last two don't need a lot of quilting, the made fabric has pretty small pieces and the effect would be lost with a whole lot of stitching

Linking up now with A Lovely Year Of Finishes

Love, love, love all three quilts!! You do such beautiful work. Have you decided how you will quilt Fractured? I love the way your color "flows" in that quilt... it's very nice. Looking at your quilts just reminds me how wonderful, fun, and creative quilting is!

They are all lovely but I am curious about all the bits in the fruit salad quilt. Did you use all your crumbs to make that fabric? it is spectacular!

I favor your fruit salad quilt. It is a beautiful way to use up scraps, and scrap quilts are my favorites.
