I've finished the fabric collage I posted about here. This is what it looks like.
Jenny Bowker and Jinny Beyer. Here is my first one, but it still needs to be quilted.
It is now sewn together and waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. But there are other things that I've been working on and finishing. There is this little wall hanging based on the book Happy Villages by Karen Eckmeier.
It was given as a "thank you" to a corporate sponsor of a gallery where I volunteer. It's my imaginary Tuscan Village.
The art group I belong to spent time working on a project for Canada's 150th birthday. It required the use of specific techniques and was created in sections that eventually were joined together in some fashion. Mine looked like this and I called it Longitude 141° W to 52° W
It, along with 9 others, was displayed at Lake Country's Art Walk last year. My artist statement read:
Canada is vast, abundant and diverse, and celebrates its 150-year birthday this year. I chose to portray its wildlife diversity interspersed with other symbols associated with Canada. For the west coast, a salmon; for the east coast, a puffin; for the north, a polar bear and inukshuk. Represented by the green, red, brown and yellow triangles circling the puffin, is the Maple Leaf Tartan, Canada’s official tartan. All are linked together by Canada’s maple leaf and motto, “A Mari Usque Ad Mare”, from Sea to Sea. I love my home.
Then there was some finishing of "flimsies" that had been sitting around for quite some time. Finishing these gave me an opportunity to do some much needed FMQ practice.

And to round out the finishes, a few community care quilts.
Now it's a new year and it's time to get some new projects on the go.
