And Another of the Eleven Completed!

Here's one of those recent projects I mentioned yesterday--my eighth completed quilt of the eleven quilt goal for 2011:


It's a pretty boring photo, but once I finished it, it went up on the wall in the Wild Child's room, and there's not a lot that can be done with photos of quilts on walls--especially if the rest of the room isn't spiffed up a bit first. (The Wild Child is currently working on spiffing--she just hadn't done it yesterday when I hung and photographed the quilt.)

This is a quilt I designed a couple years ago as a charm pattern for a class I was teaching, and I named the pattern Eye of the Beast--it reminded me of the yarn and stick God's Eyes we used to make at summer camp when we were kids, but the Halloween fabric seemed more beastly; hence, the name.

As usual, I overestimated how much I could get done in the amount of time I had available, and I never found time to quilt the top before the class, so it went into the "to be quilted" basket until now. It sure feels good to get some of these old projects finished!

The next quilt of the eleven for this year is--I think--an appliqued child's quilt. I've been working on it off and on for several years, so I think it's time to get it finished, don't you?!
