First finish of 2013

Here's one of my Tumbler Party quilts. The Tumbler Party was a swap of sorts that Yolanda set up when she was feeling well last winter. She collected fabrics in specific colors schemes from about 12 different participants and then she used her die-cutter to cut tumbler shapes for all of us, she mixed them up and sent a packet to each of us. This one was in Yolanda's favorite color scheme... I assembled my quilt top when I was sewing in Lake Las Vegas with some friends for a weekend last February. But it sat unattended all year when Yolanda got sick and I was focusing on helping her get all her family quilts done.
So it is finally complete... It has both hand and machine quilting in it and its going to a very dear friend of mine - the hostess of that LLV sewing weekend last year - Tifanie - who has a fresh start in 2013 and also a birthday this month. :)
(Oh, and the adorable and very helpful puppy in the pic belongs to my husband's buddy, Tony and his wife, who had our family to their cabin over New Years' where I finished the quilt and got the great snow pics!)
