Hope you are well. Sorry it has been so long. I thought I would have more time with my son in college. It seems I was busier than before. I have some things to show you to finish off the year.
First up is the Halloween quilt I made. I have been hoarding Halloween charm packs and decided it was time to use them up. I made this using the disappearing 9 patch technique. It's a little blurry. Sorry. This stills needs to be quilted.
Then I took a class from my friend Trisha. It's called Birch Bark by Sam Hunter. I takes a jelly roll and a half a yard for the contrast bar.
I used batiks. This also needs quilting. My cousin just built a new house and it has an open floor plan. It echoes in the house so I think I will add a hanging sleeve.
Those kept me busy for a few weeks. Then I decided to start some Christmas gifts.
Amanda Jean had a wonderful tutorial on making these tea towels. You can check her blog out here-crazymomquilts.blogspot.com.
I like to give so I made 50 of these towels for friends and family. Here are about 47 of them all rolled and ready to give.
Then I was on Pinterest and found these adorable pillows. Had to make a few for my friends and family too. But I only made 5 of them so far. I have a few to make for some friends, then I am making a bunch for my friends store.
I cheated a little and bought some flannel shirts at the local St Vincent store. Cheaper than the fabric store.
I was so excited for 2015 that I have not thought once about 2016. There are a few things I would like to finish. I don't have any goals or resolutions yet. I just want to be better than I was last year. Kindness goes a long way.
From my family to yours, happy 2016!
