Sherri Lynn Woods Improv - finally a finish

I applied to and was accepted to create a small quilt for Sherri Lynn Woods book "The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting, and Living Courageously". It was super fun and for me a steep learning curve.
Here is the quilt I made. I call it "Through my apartment window".
I had a chance to play with improv and free motion quilting. Life is so good.

Peter Pan and Wendy

My youngest granddaughter turned one the end of February and I just finished her quilt. It is Peter Pan fabric I found in my local quilt store just after she was born. Love it. So pink and pretty!
The fabric is so pale and low volume, I just love it. Not my usual style but very beautiful. The pale pink row is tiny Tinkerbells, so cute!

The back is a lovely soft flannel. After it was gifted she sat on my lap and petted the blanket!
Yes it was a huge hit!

Pam Kitty Morning Picnic Quilt

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you and the new norm of social distancing. I don't go out much and have to say last time I went to the grocery store I was a little surprised, and grateful, for the procedures they have put in place. Lines on the ground outside the store so not too many people go in, sanitizing all the carts, arrows on the floor directing traffic flow and lines on the floor to exit through the cashier. I sometimes feel we are living through a movie, say "Contagion", with way more hand washing. To combat the stress I have a practice of meditation, yoga and yoga nidra. And of course quilting. Quilting is my happy place!

I have been working on this quilt for years. Saw the pattern, ordered the kit, and then it sat. Then another flurry of activity to cut it all out and sew the squares. Last effort saw it as a top. It was to have been quilting and presented at Christmas but that never happened. LOL not sure why I think I can complete anything in December.
With the social distancing and staying home I completed this in 2 days. It has now been delivered and is being loved in its new home.

Colin's Quilt

I have a wonderful brother in law! This quilt was to be for his birthday but I missed it. Not by much though not sure that counts in anything but horseshoes. A tale of a 2019 quilt.

He loved it!

I thought it looked so good at my place he almost didn't get it, lol.

Quilt is very happy in it's new home in New Brunswick!

Hello February!

Hello February! I have missed writing in my blog. More than that I can't remember what I have done!

I made this cute baby quilt for a member of our choir. It was for her second baby. Aneela Hoey has the best fabric ever!

This was a fabulous pattern to whip up. Love how it turned out!
