Since I declared that I should only have three quilting projects in my work pile at a time (a system I'm already gaming and trying to rethink -- more on that later) my ALYoF December Goal should certainly be one of them. Also, of the three projects, I have been working on two of them. So, here it is, I declare that I will finish the other one, my mystery quilt, in December. (P.S. I also have to finish and ship my IG mini quilt this week and I'd like to finish up my Little Letters quilts... so perhaps by this time next month I'll have three new projects on my list!)
Finishing the mystery quilt is good for a number of reasons:
- The top is almost done.
- I have new project ideas that I'd like to work on.
- I'd like to give it as a Christmas gift.
- I started it in 2006!
It still doesn't have a name. I'd love to hear your ideas! (It feels a little Christmasy to me, but the backing definitely isn't.)
There are just a few pieces not yet pieced into rows.

That quilt is gorgeous! I'm sure you'll be happy to have it finished.
Thank you, Sandy. Good thing I made it my goal... cause the competitive side of me will ensure that it gets done. Of course, I also told my 4-year-old that I'd teach him to quilt this month. Hm...

It is beautiful no matter what you call it, Sarah, well done!
Thanks, Marji. I might go for a personal name for the (currently secret) recipient. ;-)
