Hope everyone of my blogging friends have a happy and prosperous year getting many of those UFO's completed this month. I've joined Abyquilt for the month to get what I have on tap finished.

Like the runner I showed the other day for my Great Niece, Briana. Also this past week between Christmas and New years, Kairle led us in Quilters Hollow through another Mystery quilt , but she only went as far as giving us four Card trick blocks . We then had to finish off our quilt as we wanted.
Here is my completed quilt. Wanted it a little different and thought I'd put the blocks on point. Makes for a very different look. Then to fill in the spaces I cut some of the pieces out of the printed Lazy Crazy collection and added my applique. It had the same backing fabric as I had used in my blocks BUT I didn't have enough of that fabric to finish off so went searching through my stash of TB beige's and found the one that blended in the best. Then the outside border was left from a former quilt border and had plenty of length so worked well. My Card Tricks worked into another good floral wall hanging or table topper. I can almost see it on my table.

Now this will be one of the UFO's to finish quilting for the month of January. I'll machine quilt this along with the runner for Brianna and Maybe get the pint size TB quilt quilted. It's been pinned for a month or more. Just need to get down and the Juki busing.

That quilt top looks just lovely! It sounds like you had a lovely holiday with all of your family around you! I come from a big "small" family and I can't remember the last time we were all together (actually -- I kind of can, I think it was my wedding!) Happy New Year -- here's hoping it is filled with joy, love and laughter.
