December 2012 NewFOs

I'm linking up to the final 2012 NewFo over at Cat Patches!
 
Here are the things I started (and even finished [one]!):
 
First are 1/2 sized sample blocks that I made for Walter & Judy's quilt.  I put 'em together & sent it up to them to see how it might look - and to use as a place mat for their cat Elizabeth's dishes.
 
I decided that the coins need to be wider,
with narrower borders around them.
But that's the whole point of samples, right?
 



I had fun trying out some FMQ while I was at it too.
 
 
Next is a block I made just because I felt like sewing
SOMETHING!
 

I just kept pulling scraps out of my bag
& sewing them together a la 15 Minutes Play.
 
 
And finally, I wanted to make some
Criss Cross coasters for a friend of mine.
I decided to make half of them straight & half diagonal.
They should be finished today.
 
Started with 48 4.5" squares,


Then lots of ironing & more pinning than I usually ever do.



So that's that!
Onward to 2013!!
 
Happy New Year!
