A WIP is finished!!!!!

I am a bad blogger, I know this fact and I am a last minute person too.
I have had this sitting around as a flimsy for about 2 years and I needed a quilt to donate for our footy club promise Auction.
So I got it out, sandwiched it up, quilted and bound it.
I did straight line quilting in a kind of chevron pattern, it started out as a vague idea but I was really happy with the end result, it kind of grew into itself as it stitched.
It is quilting fabrics from the bargain bin at Spotlight but they are pretty and go together.
It was purchased by one of the young players for his mum on auction night.
I asked him "what are you going to do with it?"
He Replied "mum asked for a quilt for her birthday"   how sweet.
It's funny really, his dad bought the one I put up last year and it went to Sandy also, she does love her quilts I think.

2012 Work In Progress Challenge.

AJ has devised an evil plan to help some of us finish our un-finished projects in our ever increasing Quilting stash.

12 WIP's in 2012

So far I have only found about 4 quilts that are unfinished but that doesn't count all the fabric that I have chosen patterns for and not even cut up yet.

I have made a new page to showcase my progress but here is the list so far, there are still a few places I have not looked..

1. Flimsy of Basic Ease from Modern Basics Book
2. Flimsy of Posie Patch from Modern Basics which also needs a bit of applique
3. Blocks assembled using Cappuccino Bali Pop, needs to be flimsy'd and finished.
4. Blocks from Carol Doak's 2011 Twisted Myster Paper pieceing, all fabric cut out but only a couple of blocks complete.
5. Fabric cut out for a Star quilt (very old WIP).
