Welcome to an inside look at how this quilt designer and fiber artist keeps life interesting.
I have been an artist most of my life in various mediums, but when I learned to quilt, I combined the knowledge of other mediums with fabric.
I started NESTLINGS by Robin in 2004 and you can view my published quilt patterns at www.nestlingsbyrobin.com
and I don't mean the space kind :) If you are like me, then you know exactly what I mean. This year I will be attempting to finish one per month, put some on etsy, donate some to my guild luncheon boutique and to the Alzheimer's Priority Auctions. That should put a dent in the old ones as I start new ones:)) Here is my January UFO...it has been done except for the frog for over a year and a half. Now the froggie is on and it is ready to be shipped to my sweet daughter, Devin. She has waited patiently long enough!

This quick quilt was made using scrap strips and the very easy Quilt-as-you-go Tasseled Strip quilt pattern from Suzn Quilts. The froggie is my design and was used on my nephew's baby quilt back in 2007.
The froggies on his quilt were about 4" x 5" so I traced the outer edges of the froggie and scanned that into the computer. Then I printed it as 'fit to page' onto 11' x 17' so that I would have a larger template for fusing onto the quilt for Dev. It isn't exactly proportional, but what she wanted.

What UFO will you finish this year?? Pick just one and you will be amazed at how good it feels to finish--so good, you will choose another to work on:) Until February, Keep quilting!
