I finally quilted this scrappy baby quilt I have been messing around with for a year. I cut all my scraps into 2 inch, 3.5 inch, and 5 inch squares. For me, those are good sizes. I also had some 2.5 inch scraps of the same fabric so I put together these stars along with some white background.
This is not a color I'd normally have in my stash so I thought I'd just use them up and made 6 stars with a scrappy edge and binding.
I used a matching Minky type fabric for the backing. There is not a baby for this quilt...I will just put it away until I need one.
I also finished up this jelly roll quilt I made this past fall. Heartstrings by Black Mountain Quilts.
I used a French General jelly roll but I did not save the tag. I made it while away at a quilt get-a-way and was limited to the fabric in the jelly roll but I think, that if I made it again, I would make the hearts from the dark and medium shades but would leave the lights out.
As Christmas approached I pulled out a bunch of small Christmas patterns.
Merry Christmas by Little House Needleworks.
Hometown Holiday-Schoolhouse by Little House Needleworks. Love this one. I just love old school buildings.
I was stitching with some ladies this past fall and they were talking about how they turn a piece upside down when they need to stitch upwards...that way they're actually stitching down hill...which goes quicker. Anyhow, I thought I'd do that on this piece because I started on a window. Ha. I forgot to turn it back around and ended up so off center! There is less than 2 inches on the left but about 4 inches on the right. Oops. No framing for this one.
Another Little House piece....Bringing Home the Tree. Cute, cute, cute.
Finally, I did just the tree from Homespun Elegance's Merry Noel Collection: Avery's Little Red Truck.
I stitched it 1 over 1 on ??? Hmm. A little piece of 32 count something.
I made it into an ornament...which is pinned to a quilt hanging in my sewing room for photographic purposes.
So darn cute but 1 over 1 is just not my thing. While I like how small it is it just takes me way too long for what I get.
Now I'm back to my bigger projects and planning for some serious Florida stitching.
The other cool thing that I've done is start a Floss tube channel. It's a real learning experience but so fun.
I will make an effort to photograph my WIP's and what I'm taking to Florida.
