New years resolution

I never do a 'New Years resolution'.  But, this year I am going to..  My resolution is to get as many of my 'flimsies' made into quilts as possible.  I'm not going to put down a specific goal, just 'as many as possible'.  Here are some of my flimsies that need to be quilted.  Some are new-ish, some have languished for years!

'Bliss' giant carpenters star:

Selvedge spider web:

Fig Tree (Dandelion Girl??) layer cake quilt:

This is my oldest UFO - I'm thinking around 1996-ish?

Sherbet Pips hexagon quilt:

Redwork Renaissance Urban 9-patch:

Dream On - from a quilt-along at Happy Quilting

Ghastlies/Halloween hexaxon/spiderweb quilt:

Bottled Rainbow quilt-along.  This one is actually partly quilted (in the sashing only so far)

'Twister' baby-sized quilt top.  Fabric is ''Half Moon''.

'Sunnyside' charm qult - this one is my biggest yet (96''x96'' - 2304 pieces!).  Waiting to be able to do this one on a longarm.

Hello Betty double wedding ring:

Violets 'stack-n-whack' :

and my scrappy trip around the world top:

EEK, that makes at *least* 14 unquilted tops!  And there might be more I've forgotten about!  I see a lot of quilting in my future..........



  1. Hello Karin, I am so excited to have found your blog. You are an amazing quilter. These are all gorgeous. I am new to quilting and to machine embroidery.

I am your newest follower :)
