Blast from the Past: 2010 Crafting and Sewing

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  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…today I’m telling you about the quilts and crafts I did on February of 2010.

Back then I was very into Miss Rosie Schnibble patterns.  I was doing one a month.  This was my Sunday Best Schnibble.  Looks like I did it in 30’s prints.  I completely forgot I ever made it!!  You can read more about it HERE.

I’m guessing I gifted this as a baby quilt but to who I have no idea.  I often added a border to make them bigger so they were baby quilt size.

The Country Threads pattern, Four Seasons, features a mini quilt for each season, and I have made them all….fun, quick projects.  Mine have hung outside for three years and it was time for new ones.

SpringWallHangingThe quilts are 14 x 18 and are perfect to fit on the banner stand I have.  Read more about it HERE.  You’d have to contact Mary to see if that pattern is still available.  I know Mary and Connie have been selling a few patterns.

I was playing around with the Twister ruler.  Oh my, weren’t those quilts all the rage.  It really was a fun quilt to make.  Here is my attempt…

Read all about it HEREHERE is a link to the ruler I used.  I made a mini one one time too.

Kelli was home and was machine quilting and working on this quilt…It’s a Miss Rosie pattern.  Read more about it HERE.

I have loved this quilt that Kelli made.  She does an awesome job on color selection.  I love quilts that are more muted color.  I just always think bold when it comes to colors.

Bahahaha…read about this next quilt.  I wrote I was so excited to be starting a new quilt.  Oh my.  This still isn’t finished.  Read more about it HERE.
TributetoJudie-1Last year I did cut out more blocks.  Did I make any more blocks??  Just a few more…like 15 more.  Oh my.  I really should pull this out but right now I am buried in deadline quilts.  UGH.  Someday I’ll sew for myself again.  Someday.

I was so excited to have this done…  Read more about it HERE.  This was a From my Heart to Your Hands Lori Smith pattern.  This was a seasons pattern.  I loved it.  Hmmm. I wonder if I have it anymore.

I made this little pinkeep.  I still have it.  You can read more about it HERE.

This was from a pattern that I bought when I was in San Diego at the conference.

..and this pincushion.  Read about it HERE.

This also came from the quilt shop I visited.  It was the Country Loft.  The shop was wonderful.  Sadly, I clicked the link and it went nowhere so I’m sure the shop must be out of business.

I made myself a pair of mittens from an old vest.  It was so fun.  I still have them.  In fact, last time Karl and I shoveled snow, Karl wore them.  HA!!  You can read more about them HERE.

I remember being so thrilled with making these.  I never made more pairs.   Connie made me a pair and wear hers more than mine.

Well that’s what I was busy crafting and sewing in February of 2010.  I sure like looking back on the old blog posts.  I sure wish I took bigger pictures back then…and I wish I wrote in more detail too.  Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me all this time.  Those old posts really could use some spiffing up..but that was what I was then…this is now.  Now I’m wordy and long and feel free to share share more.  I notice I had typos then too…at least some things haven’t changed!!

    I think I have been following you that long, certainly since the crumb along. I scrolled back and my very first blog post on my blog was a link with your Try it on Tuesday but that was 2012, so it took a few years for me to get the nerve up to blog myself.

    I did a few of the monthly Schnibbles quilts. I loved the quilts I made too, and, like you usually added a border to make them more useable.
    I was sad when the blogs finished the initiative.

    To Judith above, there are 2 or 3 Schnibbles books available, and some stores still have Miss Rosies QC patterns available. I know the Fat Quarter Shop has them.
