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?
|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.
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.
