It’s been 2 months since my last post and like most of you it’s thanks to the holidays. I’ve spent the past 4 weeks pretty much sewing non stop. I’ve even gotten quite behind in my favorite shows, but I think it was well worth it.
This year I got the brilliant idea to make the grandparents quilts for Christmas. Well, I may have bitten off more than I could chew, but it was an improvement on the year I decided to make everyone (siblings, parents and grandparents!) gloves and hats!! I’d like to believe I’ve toned it down a bit 😉
First Up is the Swoon quilt I made my Grandma Moore. This was the first time I had ever attempted the swoon block and I have to say it was rather addicting. I’ve already started making more in hopes of making myself a quilt one day that my children won’t steal. LOL that’s probably never going to happen.
Next is the a Square in a Square quilt I started back in August! I changed the design a few times and was finally happy enough to finish it. This one is for the Amonetts’.
My last two are ALMOST done, but still need a little work. The Piece of Cake quilt, which is for the Fishers’ just needs to add binding.
The Niner quilt just is half way done with free motion quilting… Yeah I’m getting there.
I’ve also taken the Round & Round quilt design and made a pillow for my parents.
I even made myself a table runner!
Well that’s enough non sewing time. Gotta get back to work. Only 6 days left!
Happy Holidays Everyone.
It seems like I kept telling myself just one more row, just one more row. Well after doing that who knows how many times the top is finally done on my Baby Jane quilt.
As much as I loved making it I’m much happier to be done making it. This quilt has been put on the back burner so many times lately and has seen it’s way to sewing machine #2.
As the work on the Baby Jane quilt is finally winding down my work on the Honeysweet quilt is just now picking up speed.
I got everything cut and sorted. So it was just a matter of sitting down and actually quilting.
I even started saving the scraps to make a scrappy binding for the quilt once it’s done. 😉
A day that started out so chaotic finally ended on a more quiet note. I put the kids to bed and grabbed a cup of chamomile tea and sat down at my sewing table. My favorite part of the day is at night when it’s quiet and I can just relax and think about a project I’ve been wanting to work on.
I bought a jelly roll of honeysweet a few weeks ago and have been mulling over what to do with it. I finally decided to make a square in a square quilt.
So far I’ve finished a whopping 2 blocks, but it’s on its way. If all goes well I think I’ll have the front done by next week. As always more photos to come.
