I finished the Sixteen Patches with Blue that I first blogged about last time. As you can see, it did go through a couple more changes since then.
I had really intended to make this one much bigger and keep it here for our bed, but it ended up going to a young man who recently lost his mother to cancer. I hope it brings at least a small measure of comfort to him.
This is the backing. I had originally intended to put together these two fabrics to go on the back of this quilt, but used the Oriental fleece instead. I really like how well they go together. Not planned. At all. Muddling. Works for me!
Here at Muddle Manor things are still green and blooming outside. I'm not sure how much longer that will last, we have another cold front due. And oh, look - a chicken! Or two or three.
And, I put my count at 29 quilts finished in 2014. I finished more in 2013, but with all I've had to deal with here this year, I'm not going to be hard on myself this time.
Bonnie Hunter posted the final clue - the reveal - for the Grand Illusion Mystery on Thursday (actully midnight Wednesday!). I really, really, REALLY like this one! I would never have even attempted it if I had seen the picture of the completed project, but since I now have all the parts complete and ready to put together, I am going to get to that real soon! Thank you Bonnie Hunter!
I hope you have something exciting to keep you busy for at least the next little while. It just makes life so much more interesting, doesn't it?
Hug and kisses,
