As I was updating my Excel spreadsheet on the status of all my quilt projects (yes, I have THAT many to warrant a spreadsheet!) and I realized that I have finished 17 projects so far this year! As in FINISHED—quilted, binding on AND label! I won’t allow myself to call it finished and put in the DONE column until it has a label. I’ve seen too many quilts without labels because they think they’ll get to it later and then later never happens, or worse, they can’t remember when they made it! Okay—I admit, I once was guilty of that, but no more. Actually, I’ve done that for years, just for my own memory’s sake.
Now I feel better about being absent from my blog, I’ve been sewing! and sewing…and sewing! A little cooking, laundry, treadmill work and minimal cleaning thrown in, but mostly sewing.
Here’s more that I have finished this year:
Disappearing 9 Patch
I loved how simple this quilt was, yet so striking. I wasn’t liking the D9P (as it’s also called) being totally scrappy, so opted for a bit more planned version. Fits perfect on my kitchen table.
This was done using Lollipop’s Bindings, which are GREAT. Her bindings come in lots of fun colors and she also sells kits to use them in as well. My granddaughter chose this as her new quilt at Nana’s. All the kids have quilts that are just theirs when they come stay here. They noticed a few months ago that they have kind of outgrown their original baby quilts. And since the oldest granddaughter got to pick out a new quilt (that was on my design wall at the time), they wanted to as well. So I showed them all the quilt tops in line waiting to be quilted if they wanted one soon. ;) I had the most adorable quilt picked out for the Divine Miss M, but she kept saying, ‘or you could keep it’. LOL I finally got the hint and let her choose her own and this was it.
Salt Water Taffy
that’s it for today…more coming.
