Back in June, I put this hand embroidered quilt in the frame in my living room. My mother made it over 20 years ago. I decided it was time to have it quilted. Thanks to some help from my MIL and friends, Deanna and Rita, I finished it just before Christmas.
It turned out better than I ever expected it too.
The details are just beautiful!
I also finished little Miss Sadie's quilt. As planned she was named Sadie, but I didn't finish the quilt until the day after she was born just to be sure. Sadie's daddy works as a lineman where I work. I had asked you fellow bloggers if I should add the name before she was born. It was unanimously a big NO.
I always like to included the year I make the quilt.
Another project finished just before Christmas.
Now this project was started months ago and is getting a little closer to completion. This is a paper piece pattern for those of you that don't quilt. This piece measures 20 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches and has 126 pieces of little fabric!!! I can't show you the front yet, as it's a surprise for someone. However there are two more pieces that measure the same size and those two combined have 508 little pieces of fabric in them.
By the time this small quilt is finished I expect it to have close to 700 pieces of fabric and will not be as big as a baby quilt.
Do you all have leftover cranberry sauce you made? Here is what I made with ours today. I have the recipe on my pinterest. If you haven't joined pinterest yet let me tell you, it can take up more time than blogging and facebook combined!
Back to my tiny pieces of fabric. Stay tuned!
