I found this in my drafts folder. Apparently, I forgot to schedule it for December. Oops. I thought it would still be okay to post so enjoy my quilts from December 2011.
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. Over ten years. I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about things I was working on in December of 2011.
Kelli and I finished our Perkimon Daydreams quilts. We made two of them. One a gift for Buck and one for Kayla. You can read about them HERE.
Each quilt has 10,000 pieces…for real. They were a great joy to make. Kelli and I had so much fun. I miss our crazy sewing days.
The pattern for this can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails.
This is a great quilt for using up a lot of fabric and fabric that you no longer love.
In the process of doing the machine quilting on this, I ran over my finger and ended up with a needle in my finger. UGH. This was the second time I’ve done that.
I started working on another quilt from the same book… Bargello in Plaid. I loved making this quilt and went on to make another of it.
Kelli was busy making projects from the book Back to Charm School book from Country Threads. This table runner was on of the projects.
Kelli and I had a quilt featured on Moda Bake shop. This is Starry Terrain. I made this as a wedding gift for family friends. You can read about it HERE. The pattern is free and available HERE on our blog.
We were gearing up to host the Quilt Square Quilt Along. We picked patterns from Lori Smith of From My Hands to Your Heart. I think we picked a new pattern quarterly and then each month I would pick on of the blocks from the pattern and we invited all of you to join in with us and make one too. It was really fun. HERE is a link to the patterns we chose from.
I was busy working on my Orca Bay quilt. It was the mystery quilt of 2011.
I later went on and finished the quilt. Here it is…
The quilt is now published in Bonnie’s book String Fling. Find that HERE.
I ran into a bit of trouble with my sewing machine. My bobbin thread had a little oh-oh and ended up wrapping around the wheel. I had to take it to the repair shop.
I was collecting shirts to make a quilt. Here was my beagle, Gracie, snuggled in for a nap in the shirts.
She was a great dog.
That’s what I was busy with on the quilting front in December of 2011.
