First finish of the year….Sushi. Jan 10, 2017. 60″x40″. Based upon Score 9 from Sherri Lynn Wood’s book Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters.
Next finish (mid-January) is this Comfort Quilt for a friend of mine who is fighting a medical battle from HELL. I made 50 blocks from The Splendid Sampler program and then lost interest. It was nice to have those blocks when it was time to quickly get a quilt made. I did walking foot quilting in gently curved cross-hatching. Between the top and the back, I have used up nearly all my batik collection – only a bag of scraps left.
And a quick and easy finish (late January) is this cot quilt. It was made out of 9 patch blocks from an online exchange (note to self – don’t do THAT again!). I sub-cut them into disappearing 9 patches. I had a piece of fleece and used that for the back. Tied it with Pearl Cotton 8. It will be put in a ‘grandma’ basket. First time grandmother. I’m not sure I am a supporter of showers for grandmas but I went with the flow and made it.
