2016 finishes.

2 Jan


It’s been a busy sewing year.

Top, left to right: a massive (aka hard to take a picture of) tshirt quilt for The Boyfriend (We paid someone to quilt it.  No way could I do that heavy, big quilt on my machine!); my weekender tote with yellow flamingos; a baby girl quilt for baby girl Kelsey (daughter of a Banana) full of farm fancies that are hard to see – chicken wire, eggs, and farm scenes.  (Note for 2017: Improve photography of quilts.)

Middle, left to right: a low volume quilt that now resides on my bed (Ironically, the pattern name is “Sunday morning,” the one morning I can’t stay in my bed any too long.); a set of quilts for a set of baby boys; Legendary, a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman, completed just in time for my younger brother’s Christmas gift (a quilt I can barely believe I pulled off).

Bottom, left to right: a nautical baby quilt for another Banana baby; a set of throw pillows for my aunts made out of Grandpa Sid’s overalls; a baby quilt with Japanese flair for a baby who calls Japan her current home.


I’ve already began cutting fabric for a quilt for my older brother, which will be his delayed Christmas present.  While I wait for a fabric order to arrive for that quilt, I pulled out some blocks I made in years past; perhaps this is the year that the piles of red and blue half square triangles get sewn together.  There will undoubtedly be a few baby quilts to be made and there is a pile of Christmas fabric waiting to be made into a Christmas quilt (hopefully by next holiday season).  There are also oodles of scraps begging to be made into something.  There is never a shortage of sewing to be done!fullsizerenderimg_6021
