This is Barb's 2012 guild BOM:

And here is mine:

And I called the piecer of this quilt every name I could think of!!  She definitely needs to take Quilting 101 again!!  If she were a customer I definitely would not quilt for her anymore!!!  Oh no -- I'm the piecer!!!  What can I say other than I am so glad to get this off the machine.  It was a nightmare!

And for those who want to know:   NO, IT DOESN'T QUILT OUT!!!  Lots of little pleats in some of the blocks but my borders are square.

A New Year

I've spent every spare minute organizing my 2-1/2" and 2" strips.  Every time I wanted to sew them, they were all wrinkled and I was out of the mood when I thought about ironing them.  So I spent time ironing ALL of them and wrapping them around a straw, organized by color.  I went from bins like this:
To this:

Now when I want to work, I can just pull out the colors I want and sew away!!!
I think our grandson was happy with his bike.
Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.  We did but I am ready to get back to normal.
