A finish and a recap of January........

Here is the official portrait of Crooked Cobblestones 3, finally finished.  It was started in 2009 and finished in 2012.
I did go back to the label program and made a new label.  I had used my last piece of the really nice printer fabric and had to use a different brand that I don't care for.  The photo is washed out on this brand and was so vivid on the other one.  The first piece of it I put in the printer jammed and was ruined, and the second piece had smudges from the printer on 2 of the labels so 2 sheets = 2 labels instead of the 8 I should have had.
Here is my recap of January.  I quilted 5 quilts, gifted the flannel quilt, and started the warm/cool zig zag and 3 small crooked cobblestone pieces.  I also made 3 mugrugs, worked 3 days at stores, and taught one class.  Now if I can just keep this up I might make some headway on the 52 quilt tops hanging on hangers.  And of course I'll start a few projects.....

Love the label! I think I might do the same with mine. I love the fact that you actually printed a photo of the quilt on the label... smart! You were extremely productive in January!

Lynne said...

Seems like you had a very productive month. Shame about the printed labels.

Debbie said...

Great finishes. So love the cobblestone, as usual. You hit the high mark this month with your productivity. Good for you!!!!

Deb said...

Great work for the month! I'm really glad that you went back and added 'made by' on the labels.

You had a great month! Congratulations! Now if you quilted 5 each month you could make that stack of 52 tops disappear by November!

Lots of productivity in the month of January for you. I love the crooked cobblestones 3! And I love your labels. Adding the 'made by' really 'makes' them.

Crooked Cobblestones is just amazing -probably said before but worth repeating. I may have to try to make that one day...dang...work the plan Diane, work the plan...
I find using printer fabric is one rather frustrating, basically because I'm cheap and they're expensive and even a good one jams or smudges eventually and ticks me off. jeez where did that come from? going to get another cuppa coffe now.
I think I'm gonna make a twister QOV quilt-every time I see you pictures I like it more and more.

crooked cobblestones is a real winner! I just love the color gradations--certainly one of your strong points and an enviable quality at that!

Not a bad January!! What is the brand of printer fabric you prefer? Love your label...glad you changed it to show you were the designer and quiltmaker.

karenfae said...

love all the quilts that you show. my photos always fade a little bit on the labels. What kind of fabric do you normally use.

Congratulations on your January progress! I have not labeled the last few quilts I've finished -- I need to do that. Soon. (not later)

oh! Crooked Cobblestones 3 is fantastic! I just love its colors.

Linda E in AZ said...

Since the stuff is expensive, I'd be curious to know which label fabric you prefer if you'd share that information. thanks!

Pat said...

You are such a busy lady. You run circles around all of us. It has to feel good to get so many things done. I love Cobblestones 3.

Kristin said...

I love your new cobblestones quilt, and the label. You are so prolific! I'm amazed that you have 52 quilt tops! I bet you'll get them done in record time.

The finish on Cobblestones 3 is stunning. But then again, all of your quilts are stunning. I purely do love to see them - at all stages of their development!

What an absolutely stunning quilt. I just want to sit and gaze at it for a while. Beautiful!!! Congratulations on a fabulous finish or three or four or -- wow, you are productive!

Hi Wanda,
What a great photo of Cobblestones 3! Looks like it's all gussied up and ready to go out on the town. Or maybe to an art gallery show!

Take care.

Your cobblestone quilt turned out wonderful! All your January finishes were awesome. But love, love, love the cobblestone.

I love the glow in Crooked Cobblestones. My head spins, hearing about all your accomplishments this month!

As Nifty Quilts says....I love the GLOW of the cobblestones quilt. The center just pulls me in. Rather than just a mish-mash of fabrics that 'go' together, you've arranged them to evoke emotion. I've added it to my list of inspiration quilts!
