Hello, I'm back. I didn't realize it had been so long since I had posted on my blog. I post every month on the other blog I do for my quilt group (Sew What's)....This has been a hard year for me. I've just done what I needed to do. I have been feeling bad all year so I've only done what I was required to do....My computer has been giving me trouble too and I've been fighting with it alot too. I almost decided to quit blogging but I went back and looked at what I have done over the years and it helped me to remember things...so, I decided it was important that I continue to blog. I have been working on alot of things but I haven't finished alot of things yet. I am in several swaps and they are going on all year..I am working on alot of scrappy quilts just so I can not waste any of my scraps. I've felt overwhelmed but I'm getting over that and just trying to enjoy my sewing and quilting again.
Here are two quilts I have finished this year. I finished this one a few weeks ago and gave it to my niece. Her favorite colors are turquoise and brown so that's why I made her this one. This pattern is by Debbie Maddy of Calico Carriage. I took a workshop earlier in the year and made me a quilt top out of this pattern and I'll be quilting it soon. I looked and looked through my patterns and books until I remembered I had this pattern and thought it would do good for the fabrics I bought for her. Anyway, I did this one and Jeni loves it. I think it turned out pretty good. I'm going to probably make another one too for my sister (her Mom). I like this pattern because you can use fat quarters for it. I bought yardage and I have enough to probably make two quilts. so I might make me one too..We'll see...
This is the Carpenter Star pattern.
This is just a little scrap quilt I finished. I'm going to keep it for my new grandbaby coming in December.
That's it for now, more to come later.
