54" X 66"

Another shot at reducing my stash  ... this time it was hard to finish.  Difficult to find the eagerness to sew when the colours are not that cheerful.  Now that it's done, I do like it.  It will be a charity quilt next Christmas for a senior's gift drive  in our area.

Machine quilted with straight lines.

The backing from extra stars and bits.

Ready for it's first washing:)

I've started a leader and enders project of nine patch crosses, scrappy nine patches and quarter-square triangles:

These BOM's from last year are on the design wall .... I'm waiting for inspiration to hit me with a great idea of how to finish them off into a lovely quilt.

First Try at Triangles

Such a glamorous shot, taken in the basement with the sheets drying.    Cold, dark and wet outside, so the basement will do for now.

Made from stash, except for the backing.

Quilted with wavy organic lines using my walking foot.

Backed with some extra wide flannel.

39" x 47"

The wavy quilting is far from perfect, but I'm ok with it.  I'm sure whichever little boy ends up cuddling under it won't even notice!
