2013 Projects

Here are projects that I have completed over the year. I hope you enjoy looking through them.

I made this for a Geometry 101 Keepsake Challenge. I don't normally do challenges like this but I was taken by the word geometry. When I bought the fabric pack, I was sent (sight unseen) 8 fabrics. Of those 8 I had to use at least 6 and was allowed to add no more than 2 fabrics to the collection. I added in the orange and the light gray and decided to use all 10 fabrics. I had a windmill swirling around in my mind for several weeks so I decided to use that idea and came up with this. This was my first experience with FMQ and I was pretty pleased with it.

This is a baby quilt for a young lady who is like a daughter to me - I have known her all her life and her mom is my best friend. I made this for her after finding out she was having a girl. It was adapted from a pattern in Simply Fat Quarters from Fat Quarter Shop. Most of the fabrics used are from the Paris Flea Market collection by Moda. I pieced this quilt top and had it quilted by Teresa.

Spring Into Christmas was a fun quilt to make with a new technique for me. I took a class at my LQS where a wonderful lady taught us. We had 2 classes - at the first one we learned the technique as we cut our fabric and completed at least one block. Our homework was to complete as many more blocks as we could. In our second class we learned how to make the curves in the trees, how to make the inner borders, and laid out our blocks into a pleasing design. I finished the quilt at home and had it quilted with Christmas lights by Teresa.
