New York Beauty – this baby if finally finished. Did I mention that I absolutely LOVE it?
Baby Tumbling blocks quilt – all that’s left is to put a label on it and wait for the baby to arrive! FMQing was a breeze on it. I love making wonky swirls. Fabric is from a Jelly Roll that was given to me (thanks Karen!) and I used a dresden plate template to cut the tumbler blocks. LOVE it!
Retro Anna Williams inspired quilt – some of the blocks were made by my quilt group. This was using my retro stash of fabrics (i.e. from the 90’s!). It was fun to do – like putting a puzzle together. Not sure that I’ll keep it – it may be destined for a donation to the Westmead Children’s Hospital/AQWL. The back is pieced with fat quarters (cut to 12″) that I was pretty sure would just continue to sit in my stash.
3 Pin cushions – I needed a break from FMQing and piecing one day so I whipped up these little beauties using a pattern from my friend Robin. A GREAT gift idea.
Wide Mouth zippered pouches – from Batik HST & French General left overs. Another great gift idea.
3 jaja bottoms – no pictures but trust me – they are finished and in use nightly!
3 giving blocks for quilt group – Our small quilt group is doing a giving quilt. These nine patches will eventually be half-square-trianges and then be laid out in a chevron pattern.
Crochet fingerless gloves – one night I just couldn’t be bothered to knit or do needlepoint and I didn’t have any sewing on the ready so I pulled out a ball of silk yarn and made myself a new pair of fingerless gloves. The pattern is from Ravelry – called Super Easy Grunge Gloves. I think I’ll make another pair from the left over wool from my rainbow shawl. I don’t like the look of crochet as much as I do the look of knitting but BOY does it go fast!
