I’m starting up a little series of posts that feature old blog posts. Kalissa and I have been going back and looking at them. It’s been fun. I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW. Ten years. I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts.
I had a busy December quilting in 2019. I finished this quilt. I think it was a 3 part mystery with Quiltmaker. It’s a Bonnie Hunter design. I think I went on gifted this to my brother.
I was WAY into Civil War fabrics at the time…
When I do these blasts for the past, I’m always a little sad as I only took about two or maybe three pictures of my quilts. Now I take LOTS!!
I also finished this quilt. It was a benefit quilt for the Fire Department. It was made using Terry Atkinson’s pattern Slideshow. You can read more about it HERE.
It used all fireman fabric that I got off the clearance rack.
This was my backing.
I later went on and made another of these for my great nephew only baby sized. Connie gifted some of the same fabric a couple years ago. I’m now thinking that I should make another..the benefit is coming in March. Hmm.
I finished this UFO….It’s only a wall hanging but it was a UFO. You can read the whole post HERE.
The pattern is called Tomorrow, Scarlett (I am a huge Gone With the Wind fan so I love the pattern name too). It’s a Civil War Legacies Pattern designed by Carol Hopkins Designs.
I was busy with the mystery quilt…. This was the start of Carolina Christmas.
This was my very first mystery. Can you believe I’ll be celebrating 10 years of mystery quilts as I make this next one? How fun. This was designed to be Christmasy but I wasn’t having it. I replaced the green and put blue in instead. I’m guessing next month when I hit up the archives, we’ll find a finished quilt.
I made this.
It was a free pattern from some place called Patchalot. I looked for link but didn’t find one. I still have this in my kitchen.
This was a finish. It was for my husband’s nephew who got married the next January. It was a block of the month. This was an Open Gate pattern by Monique Dillard and Sue Glorch. I see this now and am totally not a fan.
I was busy making pincushions for Miss Rosie Quilting Company. These were so fun. I remember winning the pattern.
WOW…I was a busy girl. Typically in December I don’t get much done. At this time in our life, I was staying at home and only working on my website, www.makinglearningfun.com.
