Quilted 30 in 2009

I hope everyone is having a great New Year's Eve! We are not doing anything, just watching movies here at home with the kids. We never do anything for the New Year celebration other than this and I always enjoy the time spent with my family.

We I have made 8 more of my string blocks! So that takes my now to 36 of them and 88 more to go!!!! :( They are very fun and easy to make! Mindless sewing! Anyway, I have decided to add two more quilt projects to my list for 2010! The first one is this quilt, Diamond String with Lattice! I figure I should have the blocks done by the end of 2010 using my scraps. I am running low on strings right now, so I will work on them as I add to my string tote from cutting out other projects! It will get done sooner or later! :)

The second thing that I want to add to my list is this quilt! I have shown it several times and I just love the scraps in it. It is called "Grandmother's Choice" or at least I think that is what the pattern is. There are several patterns with that name.
Like I said before if I don't get these quilts finished by the end of 2010, I'm not going to beat myself up over it! I think tomorrow I will work on sewing the borders on those 4 quilts that I showed in the last post or the one before that. Some of the borders are already cut, just need to be sewn on. I hate sewing borders on! :(
I am happy with what I got done in 2009! I did start several more quilts but in the end, I completed 13 more quilt tops and COMPLETELY finished (quilting and binding is finished) on 30 of my own quilts!!! Yep! 30! So that makes me feel pretty good! And I also did several customer quilts too.

That is quite an accomplishment in doing 30.

Your celebrating is about like ours...very low key...watching some football and going to bed early.

Take care.

I heard a lot of snoring coming from the living room while I was on the internet. That's how we spent New Year's eve. We both were up early and worked hard on New Year's eve day.

Today we will both spend it in the garage, cleaning and decluttering, and hauling out. We are preparing for an electrician to come run some electrical for 220 for our onew compressor. The clean new space will make us both happy...Louie, for his new compressor, and me, for orderliness!

Have a wonderful day, whatever you do!
love,
Michelle

Dittos on all the new years stuff. I am really liking your diamond. I have been wanting to start a string project and keep getting distracted. I bet if I run cut my foundations, this would be a great way to bust some stash.
Are you planning anything different for the setting/background fabrics?
