November Recap and 2014 NewFO Link Up

I am participating in Barbara at Cat Patches 2014 NewFO Challenge. Click here to see everyone's new projects  November NewFO Challenge and Linky Party

My November 2014 quilt stats:

1 project continued & a FINISH!!
This was an OLD UFO this month - The French Braid quilt was destined for a school benefit auction and it had been languishing in the corner way too long!  I should have never put it aside like I did.  In the end, I had less than 12 days to get it completed and sent off.  So glad I got this finished!!

 1 new project (Not a Quilt) and a FINISH!!
One Hundred and Forty-four fleece headbands altered, with velcro added to make them fully adjustable!

This was a major project - of course I had a 'need these done as soon as possible' deadline. And can I just say how much I HATE fleece?! Done and I banked some major favor points!

1 new project!
Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt kicked off on Friday, November 28th.  I didn't get to start mine until Sunday - just under the wire to be a NewFO.  HSTs and Broken Dishes units under way.

49 Broken Dishes units, a bunch of HSTs and 1 Oops made so far!
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.  On to my December NewFOs.


  1. Hooray for getting all those black headbands done and out of the way!

  2. Love that French Braid quilt.

  3. Your french braid is amazing -- and I love the headbands, although it would be hard to love that many! :)

  4. The French braid is really beautiful. Great job on your new starts and finishes.
