I have been working on a few things, but I guess my lack of sew-jo has extended to a lack of photos, too!
Here's a glimpse at what I've been working on.
I have made a couple of baby quilts, donated to the local NICU via the Blue Mountain Quilters Guild - we were challenged to make a quilt with animals on them to be displayed at our AGM at the beginning of February. Here's the one I started with:
|Ella the elephant likes flowers|
|the elephant design is taken from the backing fabric used, sorry no picture of it|
In going through my stash to make the first one I came across this fabric that demanded to be fussy cut to highlight the owl. Combined with some leftover charm squares, and a bit of yardage, I had a quick and easy little quilt, which I had fun quilting using some long arm rulers on my domestic machine. Look - I didn't quilt it to death!
Last October my third grandchild was born - another sweet little girl. Last year for Valentine's Day I made the first two heart pillows from Grandma, (here and here) so this February I had to make another. Here's Naomi's pillow:
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a two day work shop organized by my friend Krista, (aka Poppyprint Creates ) with Lorena Uriarte on her gorgeous Opal Essence quilt. What a fun weekend we had! I am quite enjoying this process - and I am even doing some hand applique with it! This was my progress last weekend - I've now got another 6 blocks done - only another 46 to go if I make it full size!
Happy quilting! Janet
