Konqueror #7 January UFO
50" x 70"
Konqueror is complete!  Mine is a bit smaller; finishing 20" smaller on the sides and the bottom.  #7 Konqueror.  Survivor is a design by Joyce Weeks of Geoff’s Mom Pattern Co.  This is the first San Diego Quilt Show workshop I have taken and the second year workshops have been offered.  I purchased Mourning Grays and added in some fabrics from my stash as well as additional purchases from several area quilt shops.  The last couple of years has me interested in reproduction fabrics.  The workshop was in September 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center.    
Keltic Krest #13 (Extra Credit) UFO
76" x 76"
Keltic Krest is complete!  I made the smaller version.  I have been done with the piecing through the triangle border for sometime now, but just now put the green outer border on.  I am planning a blue binding.  #13 (Extra Credit) UFO; 2013 Mystery Celtic Solstice.   Bonnie Hunter has given her readers a mystery annually for several years that starts in November.  One that comes in several steps each week usually with the last step released right around New Years.  

Once Konqueror was complete I put the labels on Kartwheels and Koriander Kompass that Road to California Quilt Show provided.  A very nice embroidered label.  Then after the outer border went on Keltic Krest the binding and sleeve was put on Kilowatts.  Now comes the time for 400" of hand sewing.  Today I will be putting together backs and cutting batting for Krossfire, Konqueror, and Keltic Krest.  Hmmm...wonder what project I will work on next...the sewing table is clear.

I am thinking Kaptain Khorous is the one to finish.  It is a UFO this year so I can be one up and fulfill the gift for Logan that I have been planning since his birth last year.

I think Khorous is going to be another nice quilt. Like the colors going on. Your cutting table looks mighty lonely? Very nice labels and proud ones to sew on. Great job on all your quilting
