Finish #24 and more..........

I finished the last of the red crazy pieced blocks and made 2 extras.  The 2 blocks I pulled out are at the right.  They were just too different than all the rest.  I needed to get this off the design wall since this is my photography wall.


I found the larger lint rollers at Target this year.  The label says extra sticky and they do a great job on cleaning the threads off the design wall.






Here is finish # 24 for 2017.  I finished the binding by machine.



















Here is one more peek at the backing.  I'm so happy I finally used that 60" wide Kaffe print.













Here is a sneak peek of what went on the frame yesterday afternoon.  I haven't trimmed it yet.








I didn't really intend to quilt another one last night.  I was just going to load it but after I did the stitching to hold the top edge I just kept going until it was done.  I haven't taken it off the frame yet so I have two bindings to do today.



This is the scene outside my kitchen window when the security light came on....coneflower seed heads with snow on top.  It was -2 degrees at 10 last night and it warmed up to 0 by midnight.

You sure have completed several quilts this year. I can't say the same. This red quilt is really an eye opener. It is -2 here right now and windchill is -17. Don't plan on going out any today. Have a Happy New
Year Wanda. Chris

Love your latest finish, #24 and I 'hope' to make something like it next year. Your snow looks nice but I'm happy to say we don't have any and it's fairly mild today, for the time of year (what's left of it haha) Wishing you good health and happiness for 2018 Thanks for all your shares and inspiration:)

2017's going out with a bang for you, quilt-wise! These are gorgeous, and a fitting finalé for the year. I'm so glad you're back to good health... sure looks that way from the completion pace here. #24 is a feast for my eyes, and the red beauty is inspiring me to dig out my reds and start piecing little fragments. Happy 2018, Wanda!

I would love to see a diagram of how #24 went together. I can't figure out the pieces within the quilt.

It's gorgeous! I love string quilts and this is a new take for me. I might try something like this!
