Happy New Year! It's a Hoot!

So I finally finished my quilt I have spent most of the year on (it seems).
Fabric bought in April (whole fat quarter collection). Picked a pattern and off I went.
It stalled...got picked up here

with New Year around the corner, I got it finished! There was something weird about it
 hanging around till 2012!

So, I picked the 35 degree New Year's Eve to baste;


threw in some spare blocks and some stash pink;


and sat under the air con and sewed!


I finished it on New Years Day, evening, and had a beach day the next day planned (BEST 
place to cool down in 40 degree heat! Swam for the first time in about 2 years!). So.....






oh, and a gratuitous gorgeous daughter shot!

Bec, it's just so beautiful! So bright and airy and FUN!

Also, I'm glad I'm not the only nutter who loves a pieced back.
