Now that Christmas is past, I can show 2 quilts that I finished in December last year but I just couldn't add them to this blog because they were Christmas gifts for 2 of my sisters.
I have 5 sisters so that is a lot of quilts to make... and that will probably be the extent of my quilt giveaways as quilts do tend to be quite expensive... but I love my sisters dearly and so I don't mind splurging on them.
Gift #1: Modern Patchwork Squared Quilt Along Quilt (P2QA)... done!
|Don't you just LOVE the quilting my friend Dalene did on this quilt??? !!|
|Leaves were quilted along the borders.|
The brown with polka-dots was the backing.
|My sister Christina loved this quilt.|
Gift #2: The Summer Sampler Series Quilt Along (SSSQA). This quilt required a lot of paper-piecing and it was a lot of fun.
|Dalene quilted this one, too. I just LOVE the pink stippling done on this quilt.|
|My sister Rochelle loved this quilt.|
(Her daughter Maleah is hiding behind this quilt - haha)
Now onto other projects:
|The Christmas Tree Pants that I made fit quite nicely under our tree.|
|I finished Block #12 for the Birdie Stiches Quilt Along 2011|
|All 12 blocks (Canadian edition) of Birdie Stitches Quilt Along 2011|
|Block #6, "Cathedral Star", for Fat Quarters Stars Quilt Along|
|The first 6 blocks for the Fat Quarters Stars Quilt Along.|
|Block 7, "Twinkle of Hope", for FQSQA|
|I didn't like my final edition of last month's Freebie 15 Companion, so I purchased another block & pieced it together the way I preferred... This one is called "Pebbles".|
|Block #3 for my local quilt shop Traditional Pastimes "Freebie 15" quilt along.|
This block is called "Ripples in the Sand"
|Freebie 15 Block 3 Companion - "Snails"|
(The colours are a tad yellow on this pic b/c of the lighting.)
I am not planning any new projects at this time as I have a few items that need finishing:
- 3 quilt tops that need batting, backing, binding, quilting
- ABC quilt that needs to be started... then completed
- piece twelve 9.5"x 9.5" stars together into a quilt
- work in progress on FQSQA & the "Freebie 15" quilt blocks
Hopefully, this will be the year that I will finally complete some photo albums!!
What is on your to-do list for 2012??
