I have been working on some projects of my own this year and finding it pleasant to do so with my new sewing area and fabric cupboard. I have several quilts waiting to be quilted, but just don’t have the time – I plan to quilt them when I take a break in January.
I have finished two simple quilts. The first is for my youngest niece. She was two when I got it finished, so later than usual (I usually try to have my nieces and nephew’s first quilt completed by their first birthday) but I think with the extension and my broken ankle I am allowed to be a bit tardy this time.
My niece is a gorgeous, independent, always smiling little girl, so I wanted to make a bright fun quilt. I called it Little Ray of Sunshine which suited her personality. I quilted it with an allover freehand daisy and loop pattern.
This I Spy quilt I made as a present for a friend’s newborn son Carlos. I have made three I Spy quilts this year one of which I donated to my nephew’s kindie which will be part of their silent auction at their quiz night later this year.
I quilted it with an allover freehand stars and clouds pattern.
