A "Sort of" Finish and an Earlier Finish

Happy Friday!  This week I completed the last two blocks of my first BOM...the Craftsy Block of the Month.  Here are the first 10:
And here are the last 10!
I had SO much fun learning a new method each month!  Even foundation paper piecing turned out not to be so bad!  I can't wait to see over the next two months how these will all come together in a finished quilt.  

I thought I would catch up and share with you some of the projects I completed in this, my first year of quilting.  We have a dear friend (who also happens to be our acupuncturist) who opened a new office and after much thoughtful research named it Water Lily Acupuncture.  The following is now hanging in his office:
The pattern is from Eleanor Burns' Quick Trip Quilts and was inspired by the paintings of Claude Monet.

Have you seen on some of the quilting class sign-ups a classification "confident beginner?"  Is there a "crazy beginner" category?  Really, what was I thinking?   Firsts or seconds on this project:  those appliqued water lilies, FMQ'ing attempting a water movement, hanging quilt sleeve, label on the back.  Yikes!  BUT, I had a wonderful time making this and Yong-Jun was quite pleased.

I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday!  Have a great weekend!

PS  I am thankful (often) that I don't know what I don't know.
