I don't know about you, but December seemed to fly by for me. Life got busy, so I didn't have nearly as much time for quilting as usual. I did have one big finish, though. I assembled the blocks for Easy Street into a finished quilt top. I can't tell you how exciting it is to have the top of this one complete.
Once I had the top assembled, I was ready to focus on the back. I had quite a few units left over, and I didn't want to waste them, so a pieced back was in order.
I made 2 diamond blocks:
1 flying geese strip:
1 splash of color:
And 1 of these:
I'm still working out how I'm going to put everything together for a coherent back, but I have plenty of leftover fabric to work with. I think it's going to be great when it's all together. Hopefully I will get it finished in time to have it quilted in the next few weeks. That way I will have some binding to bring with me on vacation.
All told, 2015 was a productive year. The 13 blocks I finished in December pushed the total up to 1098 for the year. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that I broke 1000. I'm not expecting to do that again this year, but we'll have to wait and see.
