Happy New Year. I hope you all have gotten off to a good start. For me it was nice to get back into the sewing room.
Before Christmas I was busy finishing up a quilt for my Daughter In Law. I made this top back in 2008 as a block of the month, but never did get it quilted. When my DIL saw it she loved it so I told her I would quilt it and give it to her. She was pleased with it.
Last year I was part of a swap for Lost Ship Blocks. I put a portion of the blocks together and sent it off to the long-arm quilter. I am calling this Formation as the way it is set it reminds me of a formation of ships. I had it quilted in a simple Baptist Fan design which is one of my favorites. I really like how a secondary design showed up with this setting.
On of my goals this year is to work on small quilts that I have had on my list for a long time. So this week I put this green quilt together. It is inspired by an 1885 Crib Quilt from New York State. I think that Jo Morton did a great job with her small quilt version.
The little brown top with the stars was a fun sew from a SAL from Temecula Quilt Company. They always have such cute little quilts.
I looked in the quilt closet yesterday and found several small tops waiting to be finished. So I am going to get busy and get them basted and ready to quilt.
I have also been stitching on this sampler. It was designed by Brenda Gervais. She has another new design Frances Pool a reproduction sampler from 1832, which I want to stitch also.
With all of these projects on going I think I will be staying out of trouble – will you?
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time.
