January Finish

 I finally finished Amanda Jean's quilt a long.  I am just slow at getting pictures up.  This quilt actually quilted a lot better than I thought it would.  I was prepared to really have to deal with some flaws, but that ended up not being the case.
I used two bijou fabrics for the back plus a row of extra pieces I had from my earlier miscalculations.  I really like how it turned out.

Overall, I would have done a few things differently in the construction, but the final product turned out better than I expected.  This quilt fits a twin sized bed pretty nicely.  I have no plans for it at this point though, so it's just folded nicely waiting for me to decided what to do with it. 

I did do other sewing in January, but mostly mending.  As well, I almost finished my bliss quilt, I was binding it, but it will go in February finishes.  I have a lot of sewing I want to get done before this baby comes, so I need to get organized with it all.

I love this one. It is so bright and springy with a lot of yellow and white. Very cute.
