New Year's Eve Morning

It is the last day of 2008 and this morning I couldn't believe how fast this year has gone. It is true, the older you get the faster the years go by. I only have to work a half day today so I will finish quilting this quilt when I get home . I absolute love this quilt and I think it is one of my favorites. This evening we are going to dinner with friends, but will probably be asleep when the New Year begins. :D
I am working on piecing my new quilt a little bit each day. I have all the small squares marked, which took me 2 hours to do. I am one of these people that have to do this to get my half square triangles to come out right. There are 336 of them! I also got the strip sets sewn together.
The last picture here is the binding. I am partial to striped fabric for bindings, I like the look after they are put on.
Time to go to work so I will end with wishing you all a very "Happy New Year" and may the new year bring health, happiness, and peace to one and all. :D

I always love seeing your quilts in progress. The one on the frame is gorgeous. And I love the binding for the mystery quilt. Yep...stripes add a nice zing.

I have one other friend who loves to use striped fabric for binding. I had never thought of that until she had mentioned it once. She makes quilts for Riley's Childrens Hospital and she loves finishing them off this way.

Happy New Year!

Beautiful quilt in the frame. Hurry up and finish yours so you can put mine in the frame. The mystery you have going is very intriguing, can't wait to see the outcome. Have a Happy New Year.
