Since I finished the
of making quilts for my 11 nieces and nephews,
I've been working on
Odds and Ends.
This week I started a
to give as a wedding gift in October.
The top is sewn together and is waiting to be quilted.
This pattern goes together so quickly
and really shows off the gorgeous Christmas fabric,
"Holiday Flourish" by Robert Kaufman.
Giving Christmas Tree skirts as wedding gifts
has become my standard gift, when appropriate.
I made this months blocks for "Gravity."
The colors aren't quite as bright as shown here.
These blocks are growing on me.
The pinwheel and snowball blocks I made a while ago from the
Anna Marie Horner fabric have been sewn together.
This top reminds me of sparklers.
I need to find some fabric for borders and
don't have any other fabrics of hers in my stash.
With her fabrics being so bold and different,
I'm thinking I need to continue with using hers for the borders.
This might mean some shopping is in order!
On the Knitting front....
I finished my "Socks that Rock" socks
and I love them!
These were made with #3 needles,
casting on 60 stitches.
They are loose on me, but they will be so warm.
These are going to be anklet socks....
something I have not made before now.
They will go together more quickly though!
It's a hodge podge of projects today,
but it's been fun to bounce from project to project this week.

and Patchwork Times to see what others are working on this week.
