I'm starting this post with an oldie. I made this small quilt in 1994 for Mr. Fun's Office in Chicago. It measures about 36" square. I love to visit my earlier quilter self. How organized I was with the placement of the pink and turquoise.
I admit I purposefully mixed up 1 of the nine patches. I loved the look in old Amish quilts so I included it in mine.
Here is the back. I machine appliqued along the print of this funny fabric and
added a red sun to the purple sky. Pretty arty for 1994.
I've been enjoying on my dining room table
Hooray! I finished my first block of hand quilting. I am so so glad that I cut out the back of the applique'. It's going really well.
Thanks for all the nice comments on my newly finished top. This year I'm going to include my inspiration where appropriate. In this way I hope to encourage you to make it your own by using inspiration and not copying.
Coco is taking sanctuary this January in her favorite chair. I rarely see this dog without a pillow under her head. What a princess! Yes, my angel tree is still up. I am enjoying it on these long dark winter nights.
I hope you are staying warm and busy!
