NEW YEAR QUILT




This is the quilt with the nine block that I started during the Christmas holidays. I haven't been doing much lately and I think it had to do with too much on my little mind....I wanted to sew...but not quilt...so I made two pairs of pajamas bottoms and am happy with those. I used the serger on one and sewing machine on the other. Needless to say, serger one was done in no time. I am thinking of doing some embroidery on tee shirts to make them go together. Oh too much thinking there too.
I used a striped blue sheet for the back and cut the back fabric on the bias (first time) for the binding. I just love the way it turned out. It really is very spring like. I think I know who it's going to got to also.
We still have people with Christmas lights up and I think that by the 10th of January, they should turn them off! I mean it, even some of those awful snowmen are still up in the area. Time to move on people!
I am going to start another nine patch type of quilt, not so many colours I think. I find it hard to put them all together and the last one (January q.) Jerry helped me with the placement of colours, so that's why it looks so good.
I also have a build up of stash...who knew it would happen? I don't want to have so much that I can't decide what goes with what, it's hard enough buying fabric. There is a recession on and I am commited to being frugal.
It's the weekend and I am going to cut out a quilt or two. I think that I am doing about 52 X 52 quilts most of the time.. They do look great as lap quilts. I wonder what size most people make......
