Proof of finish.........



I'm publishing a second post today to get these finishes in at the end of the year.

Finish #19 for 2020

 Yardbirds Circling the Cat wallhanging finished before midnight Dec. 31, 2020.  It is approximately 32" square.  Hand finished binding.



The back is a mottled batik.







Finish #20 for 2020

You might remember this mini colorwash I made while I was teaching my Colorwash360 class.  The little squares finish at 1"






On the back I added the folded squares at the corners so a rod can be put in on any side for hanging.  I don't normally count my small pieces in my yearly count but since this one is art and not a serviceable item like placemat or table mat I am going to count it this year.   It took many hours to find all of the fabrics to make it and arrange and rearrange many times unlike a table mat that I could make in an hour.  I'm only justifying this for myself since I'm pretty structured in my expectations of what I make.

You got there - well done. I love the pattern of the yardbirds/cats and the cute scrappy squares in the border. Also a great idea to put 4 hanging squares on the back of the colourwash, giving you 4 changeable options to hang it. Now onto 2021 :)

I think these count too! Quite a goal to achieve, andalways such fun to see what you come up with. Happy new year.

Both are marvelous pieces, and you don't need to justify one single thing — to us, anyway! Dealing with one's own exacting standards is a whole other story, but IMO these two make any cut one might encounter. And I so love the Yardbirds... color and flow are so dyname=ic. Happy New Year to you, Wanda!

I count all finishes, since I made them and they are finished. I have low standards LOL. I just noticed the beautiful border on the Yardbirds Circling the Cat. It looks paper pieced.

Congratulations on finishing these beautiful quilts before year end. Yardbirds is striking and you know I love the border you designed. It's fun to see more ways to make a Lone Star.

Thanks for squeaking in these two. Both beautiful colors and combinations.

Yardbirds Circling the Cat is stunning, I love the colours, the rich green background is beautiful - is it batik?
