Last journal quilt

Here's the last of the year of journal quilts - number 52. I have done a very simple JQ this week, representing both the end of this project - my 40th birthday, which is next Wednesday - and the beginning - my dad's shirts, which was what I used for the very first JQ I did. In this instance, I used a piece with the pocket still intact, and I intend to cut some bits from the cards I receive, to keep in the pocket. I've enjoyed this project, but I do think I'm glad to have it finished! Next week some time, I think I will put all the photos into flickr, perhaps with the descriptions as well, and set up a slide show - should be fun.

I did also do some more quilting on the fabric for the bag, but it doesn't really look any different than Thursday. I won't get anything more done, as we are having a little get together this evening, so I'll do some cooking - not a fancy dinner party, but it will need lots of nibbles. And I'm not the store-bought nibble type, really. I'll try to remember to take a photo of the food when it's done.

I am so impressed that you kept up the Journal Quilts !! I've found that just coming up with the monthly TIF a major challenge :-) I take my hat off to you (or crash helmet in my case)

What a prefect ending to the series! Aren't you glad you stuck with it all year? You now have a great collection.

How clever of you to use a shirt piece with the pocket! I'll bet you are glad to be done with the journal quilts. It was a great project, but you really don't need any more sewing projects. You always seem to have plenty to do.

A year of journal quilts, finished early! It'll be fun to see them all in a slide show.

Happy birthday a bit early!
