Audition, cut, sew

I had no idea what I was going to do to start my Just 2 quilt. Well Sew Sisters is having 25% off her fabric that includes her massive shelves of 6.99 fabric and also her 3.99 fabric. So I went and in doing so found my fabric for the boarders and that decided my on my 2 color quilt. I love those huge flowers and was so happy that now I can start 
Sale gave incentive.

 I was tired when I got home from work same old story all week kind just coming and going to work and nothing else...after the holidays, knocked me a little I think.
Well I said that is it I am starting this Just2 quilt so I cut the fabrics.
Well it was only 700pm I`m not going to bed yet. So I started piecing I got all my pieced blocks done, and applique is ready to put apply.
Now I am going to bed.
The title of the quilt should say just takes 2 hours to get these these are my 2 colors for my quilt...what are yours??

New Years Day 2012 Hurray!!

Basket of Posies
Basket of Posies is almost done I am working on the boarders Sandy let me use her design wall to put up the blocks for a preview. I am so happy with the results. It is a great incentive when you are able to see your quilt like this!!

Sandy also is working on a gorgeous quilt as you can see we were not board. Sandy is always a character and totally entertaining. We spent New Years Day quilting of course that is the only way to start a new year...

Sandy`s gorgeous Love Letters
We also got to see her Love Letters on her design board for the first time Sandy picked out all her own fabric from her stash to make this gorgeous quilt. We have decided this will be in her `hope chest`. 2 more blocks Sandy!! We both started at the same time I am on block 4 reason is the first quilt but I will get back to mine.
Sandy and Guido

This is her Guido he sings lots and is very loving as you can see I could not resist this photo of her.  Then the quilt below she pulls out, she had pieced this long ago and is still thinking of what boarder, I love this one too...

Another Sandy Quilt thinking on boarder

All is all it was a great day except for the heavy rain that fell all day but that only makes the rest of the year look so much brighter.
I would like to thank those that have followed me throughout the year of 2011 and sure hope to share more with you in 2012, friends till the end.
I have been viewing many of the blogs and I see that many have taken advantage of the holidays and completed some UFO`s I hope you have a chance to surf the quilting blogs.
