Planning for the festive season probably.
Or like me (trying to) catching up on everything?
If you're here for the first time:
take heed: 4 blog posts in 1 (lots of pictures)
Our oldest son had left home a few years ago, but now he has left the country too. In July he moved to Malta where the weather is always much nicer than here. He is a professional
He thought it was a stupid idea to make him a quilt as it's always hot in Malta, always ...
Stubborn as I am, I made him one anyway.
I thought I would be struggling quilting this big one, but that turned out to be nonsense. I used an easy pattern for every vertical block.
Pattern: Dreamweaver by Tula Pink
Fabrics: Art Gallery Fabrics: Oval and Nature Elements
Quilted with Madeira Cotton Nr 30 Sunrise (= orange, yellow and green)
Backing: Green from my LQS (Kona Zucchini lookalike)
Binding: Dark brown/red (like the dark red in the quilt)
Size: 64" x 84" (after washing it 61" x 79")
Next up was our niece who now is a Master of Arts after having studied Religion & Culture. She loves blue, so I made her a fast & easy quilt (in 3 days). I followed a tutorial by Quilting in the Rain (here) which involved quilting as you go, but my quilt was bigger.
I used my most precious flannel, the Dr. Seuss; and when it was finished I wrapped it up nicely.
Pattern can be found here
Fabrics: all Kaffe Fassett (from a desert roll) + Dr Seuss flannel
Size: 70"x55" (before washing)
Last Friday I sent this mini quilt off to the UK. It was made for a swap on Instagram, hosted by
Sandy Greenberg. He was hoping to get 50 then set his target for 100 and he ended up with 500 (or thereabouts)
Pattern: Sewmamasew here, made mine a bit smaller (one of the rules was a size restriction).
This is my first time and I wonder if I can keep the pace. I'll do my best!
If you're still here, you made it to the end
Thank you for sticking with me!
