While I was away for almost 2 weeks,
Knitting is so portable and I can take the needles on planes,
so two pair of socks are completed on my travels.
This yarn is so soft and cuddly.
I'm so bad at keeping the labels of yarn,
so I don't know what this is.
Love this yarn, too.
In hindsight, I should have removed
part of the yarn that was really thick.
You can see the thick yellow row in the foot of the right sock,
but it adds character, right??
My sewing machine has not yet returned home,
but I have quilts to show!!
As I mentioned a while ago,
I've been teaching three friends to quilt.
I have had more fun with this and just love seeing
their excitement and finished quilts.
Yesterday, the four of us started a quilt group, along with two other
We started with "Show and Tell."
Carey's first quilt...a nine patch with a flange in the binding!
Her fabrics are so soft and calming.
Lynn's first quilt was the nine patch, too.
I love the red, white and blue.
Then, for her second quilt
she made this T-shirt quilt!
Can you believe this is her second quilt?!?
She did an awesome job.
She wanted it to be soft and cuddly,
so bought this blanket at Costco for $20!
It's like Minky, but less expensive.
The Long Armer she used had no problem with this
being the backing, but did not want it cut to size first.
This quilt will be wonderful on a cold winter night.
Nicely done, Lynn!!
My third friend, Dottie, has become obsessed with quilting.
They know her by name in the quilt shop already. :D
This is her second quilt
made by using a Missouri Star tutorial.
Her fabrics are beautiful and the shimmery silver
adds a little surprise "pop."
This is Dottie's third quilt.
She saw the pattern on Pinterest,
asked me a few questions and went to town.
Look at the fun quilting design Dottie chose for this quilt.
This is the quilt she is currently working on
and is doing a beautiful job.
It will be a queen size quilt for her daughter.
Mary made the blocks for this quilt 30 years ago,
before rulers and rotary cutters!
She used cereal boxes as templates.
Look at her points and intersections!
She found sashing and border fabrics, finished it
and now has a beautiful quilt.
Mary made this table runner using such beautiful sparkly fabrics.
Wouldn't this be wonderful using some gorgeous Christmas fabrics?
Laura went to Lancaster and found a ruler to make this
fun table runner.
I just love the circles and movement in this runner.
You KNOW I love this quilt!
This is Laura's, too. I didn't get a photo of the back,
but it could be reversible.
Love, love, love it!
I'm telling you, having a group of friends who quilt is
They bring such inspiration and quilty fun!
I'm off to cut out more quilts!
