This week finished up completely two projects; they are quilted and binding sewn on. I promised last week to show them off.The Flower Pot quilt, started in November of 2019, stashed it away until just early this year. It has a place above my buffet in the dining room this spring.
Posy also finished up. This was a fast project, I think it will be a Christmas gift for my youngest granddaughter. I love the quilting on this quilt. That thread my quilter used and the pattern are just perfect.This was a one day project for my grandson's girlfriend Kaitlyn. My daughter called and said Kaitlyn has two jobs. One at Starbucks and one at a local burger restaurant, could I make her a couple fun aprons. The pattern I purchased was a nightmare, the directions were nearly none existent, but I struggled through it, and now have some easy modification to make the whole thing easier. On to one in Christmas fabric.
Since I have finished several quilts it is time to start something new. Alex Anderson is doing an online class that started last week. So I have all my fabric together and ready to go.
I purchased the pattern and fabric kit. And yes added some additional fabrics from my Pacific International Quilt Show purchases. On to that adventure on next week's post.
Step one getting those basket handles done. The first 12 of 36 needed. Easy process and they do go pretty fast too.
What beautiful quilt finishes!! I love the Flower Pot one--just exquisite work on this...ReplyDelete
good luck on the 2nd apron...;))) hugs, Julierose
I love, love, love Posy, both the pattern and the colors you chose. What size are the blocks?ReplyDelete
That's a sweet apron and congrats on finishing your beautiful Flower Pot quilt.
All of your projects are so pretty and good for you to push on with the apron! I tell you the Designers never really make their projects. Such a waste of our time cleaning things up! HugsReplyDelete
