2012 Finishes: These are my projects that I finished this year.
1.This Quilt was started Aug 2010 as a wedding quilt for my youngest daughter. I finally finished it April 2012. almost 2 1/2 years later. I proudly gave it to my daughter late April - a little late but made with so much love. I called this quilt Stepping Stones
2.The Clutter Bag Pattern & Kit was a Birthday gift last year. I started making in late August and finished it 7 weeks after recovering from shoulder replacement surgery. I love the colors from Moda
3. I started this purse by piecing leftover blocks and squares into a piece of fabric and scraps, strips and small 2" squares. It was a mere 6 weeks into my recovery from surgery and I still was wearing my sling so one handed me pieced on. I do love the way it turned out. I used the above pattern as a guide and call this one Dianna's Purse. you can see the process by clicking HERE
4. I started this mini quilt as a paper piecing Hand sewn project to help my shoulder heal. The Inner Star was done by hand and then I did the larger star and 2 borders using my machine. I decided to make it reversible by adding autumn colors to the backing, surface quilted an orphan pumpkin block and quilted it to the other side. I was able to give this as a gift to my Daughter-in-law Kirsten as a hostess gift for hosting our family Thanksgiving Dinner. to see the process this quilt took click HERE
5. I made these scrappy hot pads. I used a muslin base and my jar of bit's n Pieces of scraps, strips, lace - sewing them down starting at the center of each one. I did surface quilting using my machines fancy stitches, then layered them with reflective batting and contrasting backing & binding them. These two I sold at my church's Craft & Art sale last Nov. I plan to make more for the upcoming sale again this year.
