I have finished two long ongoing projects. The first is a wool applique table runner. The kit was a gift for Christmas 2010. I really love it and I cut out all the applique pieces soon after I got the kit. But I put it away, and it wasn't until about a month ago, that I put it on my "to finish" list. I think it is really pretty. The second is my Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Mystery Block of the Month. I got the first block in June of 2011 and the final one in May of 2012. The finishing kit, which made all the blocks into flowers, was such a nice surprise. The fabric is Moda Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree Quilts. The pattern was designed by Joanna Figueroa. I love the soft colors. I really enjoy the block of the month. You just get a little pack of fabric and the pattern and I can finish it in an afternoon. It is not overwhelming, as it would be if you had the entire pattern and yards of fabric to cut into. I did not join the 2012 Mystery Block of the Month, but I will do it again in the future.
