So, at the beginning of the month, I talked about a Lovely Year of Finishes... and I'm so excited to report that I met my goal for January. I came in nearly right to the wire finished two nights ago, but I'm so happy to see this one to the finish line.
I started January with this design up on the wall.
Each piece was lop-sided and needed to be trimmed to 4 inches square to tidy things up. What a lot of trimming... but it seriously made all the difference in the world when I pieced everything together!
And.... Ta Da! It's pieced. Setting this goal helped me realize that if I trimmed and pieced just a few rows a week I would be done in no time. And to my delight, that approach worked very nicely!
Here's the top folded after ironing. It's so nice to see it all come together.
A closer look at it sewn up on the design wall again.
And an up close of the razzle dazzle center.
My plans for this top are to turn it into a hawk quilt. I know, you're looking at this thinking what does this have to do with a hawk. But stick along, and you'll see!
