I began with 9 6 inch animal squares - added a couple of borders and ended up with a 47 inch quilt. Perfect baby size for Ronald's House.
For this quilt I had some 6.5 inch sports flannel squares and I just made some 9 patches to go with it. About 42 inches square.
I found 64 2x3.5 inch blue rectangles and made this baby quilt. I also found the border print already cut and ready to use. The yellow has tiny hearts on it and the blue has swirls and little gold specks. About 36 inches square.
I had these odd size 5.75 inch sq seahorse blocks, they just needed to be paired with some strips for a finished quilt. approx. 35 x 42.
Baby quilts are fun, quick and go together easily.
Susan from Texas sent me her top to quilt and then send off to Utah for the Phoenix Project, which is giving quilts to the folks who have lost their homes in fires this year. Susan sent the top and the backing, I quilted it with Baptist Fans and then found some fabric from my collection to use for the binding. This is a great scrappy quilt.
I decided to join Jennifer 's I Spy charm swap. I needed one yard of novelty fabric, so I had to visit the quilt shop. And I only bought one yard! Fun little 1.75 x 1 inch cars. This is my first swap and I am looking forward to seeing what charms I get.

Quilts finished in 2012 - 30
My goals for 2012 are simple~
1 - make one QOV each month.
2 - make one quilt for Ronald McDonald's House each month
3 - finish one already started quilt each month (have about 20 of these, some more than 6 years old)
4 - if I complete the above 3 goals each month I can start one new quilt
