The Lattice Quilt is finished! from Jan's Quilts

The Lattice Quilt is complete and I'm a dork. This one is going to my daughter Carrie in N.C., and I was getting it ready to mail; the box was taped shut, then I realized I hadn't taken any photos!  Must take photos! 

For the quilt back I used the left-overs from the layer-cake.  The quilt measures 48" x 57".

May your bobbins always be full,

What time is it? from Jan's Quilts

It's binding time!  These six quilts need binding!  Two are queen-size and the others are lap quilts.  I better get busy because my LAQ has six more; three will be ready at the end of June and three will be ready at the end of July.

 The top measures 48" x 57.5".

May your bobbins always be full,

When looking ahead there seem to be so many long, time-consuming steps to finish a quilt. Between that and anxiety about our quilting, it's no wonder we set tops aside. This one is finally finished. It's a perfect size to snuggle under during this cold weather. I'm keeping it.

The Square Deal quilt

As I mentioned earlier I divided the quilt into three sections: the Square Deal center, the sashing, and the outer border. After simple SID around the sashing, each section was quilted with its own designs. The ...

Wrapping Up 2019 So We Can All Move On from Quilty Folk

I always think this end of the year retrospective should be a quick post, but somehow
it never quite works out quite that way. Oh well. Time for a glimpse of whatever finishes 
managed to come to fruition during the past year! It always surprises me how it stacks
up. Never quite what I imagined somehow!
2019 Finishes (1)
It's been a surprisingly productive year. So many times it felt like I was just sort of spinning my wheels, or at times, chasing after ever single squirrel that popped around the corner. Some of the oldest quilt tops did ...
