I’ve finished a small paper-pieced top that I can’t show you yet, as it will be part of an exhibit. No picture, but it felt like a big Ta-DAA!!! to get the top done. Now to do an all-over quilting design on it that will kind of blend away, as the focus is on the piecing.
Now I’m back to work on some kaleidoscope blocks and will try to figure out how I want to make them into a quilt. I’ve shown some of the blocks before, but here is one of them (this is from a Paula Nadelstern class). This block is about 14″ square.
And I stitched up a couple of Quick Strippie Quilts (ala Maryquilts.com). (The tops only are done, and not even trimmed yet.) Cutest and easiest pattern ever. Perfect for babies. About 2/3 of each quilt is shown over the railing The dark print between the puppies is puppy tracks:
I made a Sack Hat/Cowl this week. The pattern is a free one on ravelry. The yarn is Stonehenge Fiber Mill Crazy . Super easy…basically a tube, make some eyelets a couple of inchest from the top, make an icord to run through the eyelets, and it’s a hat. My next hat I’ll use a little heavier yarn, more of a true worsted weight.
We had a wonderful time in Texas this year, even with chilly, damp weather. It was probably my best photo winter ever, and I don’t know if the photo opportunities were really better or if I’m just getting to know my camera better. Maybe both.
A couple of favorite shots from this winter.
