I made 5 quilt tops and quilted 10 quilts between
Thanksgiving and Christmas. Got up early and
stayed up late to quilt them.
January came and I was burned out.
I had two quilts to finish up that I did not get
finished by Christmas and it was a task.
To beat everything, I took very few pictures.
All of the Christmas quilts were memory quilts.
I did work on a quilt for myself and I worked on small projects in January.
This is one of them
I had the nine patch blocks left over from my Winter Blessing quilt.
Winter Blessings was a BOM by Primitive Gathering. It was
offered several years ago and I am just now finishing mine.
Sorry no pictures yet.
Well back to this wall hanging, the nine patches measure 3 inches.
I just played around with the quilt. Trying to get my quilting mojo back.
Then my machine broke. Operator error. Had to order parts and
now I know more about timing a machine then I really wanted to know.
I have to say the people at APQS are the best. Dawn, at APQS,
worked with me over the phone, figured out the problem
and sent my parts out, I had them the next day.
We are back up and running.
I quilted a memory quilt for a friend.
I believe this was on the frame when I broke my machine.
The stars are made from her cousin's husband's shirt.
Love her dark background. The pattern is Round and Round by
ThimbleBlossoms. I made my uncle's quilt from the same pattern last year.
Has a lot of pieces but makes a very pretty quilt.
More on this quilt later.
That's not a whole lot for 3 months.
I have been working on some applique projects but nothing to show yet.
I take the applique with me to my son's tennis practice, so I
don't get a whole lot finished in an hour and a half but at least I'm not just sitting there.
Several things are in the works, so maybe I won't be away so long.
