This blog is really just a way for me to keep track of my projects, so here goes:
I made an apron for my sister-in-law. It's based on an old Delta Airlines flight attendant apron. Mine is made from blue & white ticking fabric:
Next, my nephew is getting married in October. I thought "wouldn't it be nice to make him a quilt?" and then realized I don't have it in me to make a wedding ring quilt all by myself. So, I made a picnic blanket, using old jeans and also new fabric, backing is red & white ticking. My grandmother made me a jean blanket long ago and I used it as inspiration for this. Plus, it encapsulates the idea of "Something old (jeans), something new (fabric), something borrowed (Grandma's idea) and something blue (jeans & fabric). A lifetime of picnics sounds like a nice wish for a marriage, right? It's the Broken Bars pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Company and I still have to add the backing:
Both of my kids were born in May, so I made them pillows from the Jen Kingwell book. It's the same pillow, different fabric. Here's Sophia's:
And here is Liam's:
And lastly, just finished 6 kindergarten quilts and one kindergarten quilt for a retiring teacher. They're all the same pattern with different centers, so here's my favorite:
And today I'll be working on the binding of a collaborative quilt.
But first, a walk in Denver because it's going to be a nice day. Yay!
