This is the quilt I finished this week.  It is made up completely of solid Kona fabrics.
 It about 60 inches by 70 inches, perfect for a lap sized quilt. 
It went together pretty quickly.  For the quilting, I stitched in the ditch, diagonally, vertically, and horizontally. 
The back I like just as much as the front, even though there is a lot of purple.  This is the second time I made a quilt with all solids (see the other one here), and although they both turned out well, I am ready to go back to make things with prints again.    
Among other finishes for the week...
I am not teaching a GED class anymore, which has been a part time job since the fall of 2010.  Teaching adults is much different than teaching seven, eight, and nine year olds.
My piano lessons are done, for now.  It was the first time I have taken any kind of music lessons, and I enjoyed it.  I memorized one song (Allouette) and can play some others passably well with the music.    
I completed my twelfth year as an elementary ESL teacher.  That boggles my mind.  Twelve years is three times as long as I was in college, and more than twice as long as I was a teacher in California.

With all these finishes, now there is time to do travel planning for my next adventure-learning more Spanish.
