Hello Bloggers and Happy New Year!  What an end of year I had.  I was so busy with all my Holiday Craft shows and then the Holidays that I had absolutely no time to Blog!  So my apologies to all who have been following me but I think I can say I am officially back.  What has everyone been up to?  Has anyone finished their first quilt for the New Year 2014?  I haven't finished any quilts but I have made two bags with matching tissue cozies for some friends of mine and I finished a Christmas Wall hanging which was a challenge I came up for myself and my mother in law.  I purchased a Christmas panel that I split in half with my mother in law and also gifted her 4 coordinating fat quarters that I had also purchased for myself.  The challenge was to use the panel and all the coordinating fat quarters in an original design.  We had the option of adding additional fabrics if we wanted. I added fabric to mine since I wanted my wall hanging to be a little bit bigger for a space I have in mind in my house. My wall hanging measured 40x40.  My mother in law, Adalice did not use any additional fabric but utilized all the fat quarter material in her wall hanging.  Her final measurement was 20x20.

My friend loves shoes so when I found this fabric I knew it would be perfect for her.           

My friend Angela is in love with her new bag,               

The inside of Angela's bag.  Love it!  So funky!                              

This is the panel and 4 fat quarters (pic on the bottom left) my mother in law, Adalice and myself used in our very own Christmas Panel Wall hanging.

Here is Adalice's finished wall hanging.  I absolutely love it!

Adalice used decorative stitching and did a little meandering and shadowing.  Great added touches!

Here is my finished wall hanging measuring 40x40. Sure wish my pictures would be clearer.

Close up of my prairie points.  I made 5 inch prairie points which seem to be the perfect size for this wall hanging.
