The last quilts of the year







a. my first circle quilt for my sister LD
b. a simple striped quilt to match our family room, because I was tired of our ratty blankets, and like the fabric.
c. a mixed chevron (see how the brown goes the other way? Plus two photo-bombing dogs!)
d. a baby quilt for my cousin's baby Zoe, who arrived in November (Please pray for her--she's a fighter with a rough journey!)
e. a baby quilt for a very close friend's newest grand baby, due on her birthday (end of January)
f. brother bb's asked for (but apparently unneeded) duvet cover--he MEANT a fleece backed quilt.
g. the Christmas stockings I made to match our new mantle (I think I posted these before
h. a quilt for E. She saw one she loved on pinterest, so we graphed it out and I figured out how to make it in colors to match the colors she's chosen for her condo (and Christmas...but don't tell her. I think it can work all year, don't you?)
i. Another quilt found on pinterest. This one I made for SK (with many variations). With the colors she loves--deep, rich jewel tones. I've become fan of finding inspiration wherever I can get it.

And now--sob, sob--I can't get near my sewing machine until my surgeon gives me the OKAY, which won't be until MARCH. MARCH, I tell you I might just expire before then. From lack of quilting. I need a new hobby. Sigh. One that I can do without bending, twisting, or raising my head. I've been watching a lot of TV. More than EVER. And a lot of sleeping. Not quite more than ever but that's only because I was once an infant.

In any case, that's my quilting review of the last few months.

Love the first and last one! And you just need to look at this surgery recovery time as brain storming time.
