Allietare! and Ballroom Dance.

I loved this years Allietare! Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter. I am sure it is my favorite so far, and this is #6 for me. I already have a new colorway picked for a second one. I finished the top, added a four patch border, as I needed a bit more overhang for my bed. And now I see that I messed up a few of the four patch blocks in the quilt...oh well we are not all perfect, and I for sure know I am not :) All the fabric came from my stash, which makes me very happy.
I also really enjoyed Link Up Monday, seeing everyone's' progress and wonderful color combinations. 
I hope to quilt this on the longarm at the local quilt shop...I am thinking music notes...for some reason while working on this I kept thinking of music.

I am busy working on projects that are half done.
This one is a Judy Neymeir pattern called Ball Room Dance. 
Again, I used all the batiks from my stash , and can't believe how much I have left!  
Stash just seems to multiply overnight. 
This is my first full size quilt using Quiltworx paper piece method and I thoroughly enjoyed. 

I do have some quilting ahead of me. That is fine we have lot's of winter left. And I enjoy my winter sewing. 
Next on the UFO list is to do the borders on an Edyta Star quilt that  I started a couple of years ago. 
Hope you all have a wonderful January.
