December 2014 NewFO Project

Starting off my last NewFO post, isn't even my NewFO...this is my TLC Quilters' President's Quilt, for serving two years as president.  Members of the guild made 9-Patch blocks and our past president, Jean Kuper collected them & then made a Disappearing 9-Patch quilt for me.  Another of our members, Virginia Martinez, quilted it on her long arm.  I love it!  And it was totally worth my two years volunteer time too.

Now, on to my NewFO...
Once again, it's crocheted.  I made some tiny Happy Bowls and turned them into pin cushions!

If you want, you can remove the pin cushion center & use the bowl as a thread catcher.  Since these were Christmas gifts, they were finished & given away already.

And now for a 2013 NewFO update!
Way back then, I started a braid quilt for my sister, Judy & her husband, Walter.  Well, except for the binding, it's now finished!  Judy's neighbor, Faye, did the quilting today on her long arm & will help Judy with the binding after I go back home tomorrow.  I think it came out pretty darned good!  Especially considering that those five braids were all bias on their outside edges!  As soon I as get this posted, I'll be cutting the binding for it.  It's a large queen-size, around 100" X 108" or there about.

It's been a lot of fun participating in Barbara's
NewFO Challenge!
