Last post of 2016- December OMG is done!

Yes! I did managed to finish my December OMG, with one day to spare.

I am so happy. Not perfect but I am very happy. After all, I am learning this skill one quilt at a time.

I needed to make my usual blooper moment. What? Let's not forget the tradition. I had to finish the year on a beautiful note, ♫♬♩♩♪, and a blooper was it. (really not made intentionally.)

This picture shows the half rosette that needed to be removed. I had 4 made when I realised my mistake. I had another pattern for the edges which included that section too. So 4 half rosettes were ripped off in order to do as plan.  The edge design looks like ...

... this. I thought it would add some "umph" to the quilt.

It follows the white zigzag of the edge.

My OMG was to finish quilting my RSC2015. The shuffling of the threads, the binding and a label are all this quilt needs in order to be crossed off the UFO list.
There's always next year. :^D

The fabric audition for the binding has begun. I'll be sharing more picture after it is bind and washed.

I wish you all a fun, peaceful and blessed 2017. May it be one of your best years.

  5. I remember seeing this quilt pattern about 15 or more years ago and have loved it since then, but never made one. It is gorgeous!

  6. I've loved this design since you first showed the blocks on RSC. It's still on my evergrowing list. Glad you have finished quilting it. Now get that binding on.

  7. What fun quilting you have added. Such a pretty quilt it is.

  12. This has turned out beautifully and you chose an apt name: it is a collection of gems! If you thought this had taken you a long time, my RSC15 is joined in rows and patiently waiting in its box!
    All the best for 2017 and lots of quilting fun (as opposed to patchwork)!

  13. Congratulations on getting that last finish in before the new year. So many happy colors.

  14. A grand finish for the year, even with a bump in the road. Best wishes for a Happy New Year.

  15. It's a gorgeous quilt Chantal and like you I am happy but not perfect....but we do keep getting better don't we?!

  16. Congrats on the progress and on meeting your OMG for December. Love the bright clear colors in your quilt. Hoping 2017 got kicked off to a very good start.

  17. Looking good - It will be lovely to see it finished. Happy New Year. xx
