January certainly flew by. Looking back I can see I was busy, and actually accomplished way more than I thought. Great thing taking pictures of everything that happens in life ;-}
This is my Quilty 365 project that I started on January 1. So far so good.
I also managed to finish this baby quilt for my cousins first grand child.
Love the fabric I found for the back.
So very little girly.
The big happening in my life this month is that my little sister moved from NJ to 4 blocks from me here in Florida.
I really missed having her near by this past year. What I forgot was that she is my biggest quilting fan and that she isn't shy about asking me to make her things. And being the wonderful big sister that I am, I don't know how to say no.
She told me she was in need of new placemats and some matching rope coasters.
This is her set of reversible mats.
And a close up of the matching rope coasters.
She asked for them after seeing this set made for a local church. They supply weekly meals to their seniors. A placemat goes out with the first meal and at Christmas all mats are replaced.
Fronts and backs
Our guild is taking on this project.
I have a personal goal of 2 per month for the year.
Another local group, Giving Dolls, hand makes dolls for various Childrens Organizations. When they send their dolls to hospitals they include 24 inch square quilts. This size works well with wheel chairs.
I had some great monster fabric
I'm hoping to make at least 1 of these a month for 2016.
I had this great fabric in my stash for the backing.
Come on February, bring it on.
