Past Project Friday

Every Friday I will be posting some sort of crafty project that I have completed in the past.  It could be anything from baking, to sewing, needlecrafts, art, decorating, etc.

Just a reminder that this is your last chance to enter the giveaway!  Comments close Friday night at whatever time I actually make it to the computer :)

Quilting in the ditch
This is one of the earlier quilts I made, so I apologize for the photo quality, and for the fact that I didn't even take a picture of the finished product!  What the heck was I thinking?

Cats hindering my photo shoot
What is it with cats and quilts?
But at least I got a couple shots of the finished quilt top.  It's my first (and so far only) strip quilt that I made entirely of vintage sheets.  Have I mentioned the love affair that I have going on with vintage sheets?  It's serious.

Seams - pre-ironing
I made this lap quilt for the the sweetest, most wonderful woman in the entire world just after she was diagnosed with cancer a couple years ago.  I was thinking that she needed something cuddly and cheery to take with her when she went in for her chemo treatments.  Sadly, she passed away last year, but I hope it brought her comfort during some rough times.

Strip Quilt (plus cats)

I've been thinking about this quilt a lot lately and I'm in the process of making a large king sized version for our bed.  The strips are 2 1/2" by varying lengths, and then I quilt the entire thing in the ditch, so it requires a lot of time at the machine and TONS of thread.

I'm good on the thread part, so I'm hoping Santa will bring me some extra free time.
