String Quilt #1

I'm making all my grands Christmas string quilts. The first one I'm saying is red and green. I will decide later who will get this quilt. The quilt finished at 42" x 59"
Here is a close up of the fabric.
Happy stitching!

Granny Square Corner

I found this pattern on Pinterest. I love Pinterest, you can find all kinds of things to make there. When I pinned this pattern it took me back to lionbrand. The pattern was for a much larger blanket but I was trying to use up scraps and this size will be perfect to cover Chelsi when she comes to visit. Finished size is 27" x 26". I don't like the way the finished edge looks so next time I will probably do something different.
Happy stitching.

Lasagna Quilt

I'm starting now on my Christmas quilts since I need 5. This one will be mine and it finished at 50" x 65", perfect for snuggling under on the sofa.

Granny Square

I had entirely too much left over yarn and it had to go. So I just started making granny squares. Then I got to thinking about sewing them together, so they went from this.
to this
I have another row of squares to add then I will be ready to start the edging. I ran out of white, picked up some more so I'm ready to get back to this. I have no idea what size this will finish at as I intend to go around it several times with a granny border.

Happy stitching!

Be Attitude October BOM

Two more blocks and I will have the quilt top finished. I really like this block. I know the dog doesn't have any eyes but Lacy had a dog one time and he was so black you could not see his eyes unless you got really close.
Happy stitching!

Crochet and yarn

I made Lacy a few pony tail holders. These are so easy. This is the tutorial.

I always wanted to learn to make center pull balls with my yarn and I finally learned, thanks to this tutorial.

Happy stitching!

2012 Goals

For several weeks I've been thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2012. I really want to get the quilt tops in my closet quilted and I want to finish the projects that are just laying around. I'm not saying I won't start any new projects because I know I will. In no particular order:

I want to add a red border to this panel and scallop the edges. I have never did scalloped edges but I think it will be slow sewing.

I also want to do something with this panel.

I want to finish my hexagon quilt but first I have to take it apart.

Be Attitudes - finish Oct, Nov and Dec blocks.

Boot Bash - finish Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec blocks on mine and Lacy's quilts.

Quilt the following quilts

  • Aqua 10 Minute block quilt
  • Kites
  • Pretty 'n Pink
  • Sunbonnet Sue
  • Lazy Hearts 
  • Ribbit
Things That I Love - need about 100 more blocks
Trains - I have no idea how many more blocks I need but I think about 30

As slow as I am that should keep me busy next year.

Happy New Year!
