WRAPPING UP 2020........................literally in quilts.
Not the best year I've ever had and feeling quite down at times, never seeming to know what would be around the corner and not being able to see family was very trying. Over the last month, I've been at a loss to think about much at all and had decided several times to close my blog. Somehow I've managed to hang in here & then wondered what on earth I'd actually done all year. I picked up the notebook I keep beside the big machine (Bubs) and went through the 2020 section & realised I had achieved more than I thought, so this is a rundown of what has been quilted & also made & quilted this year.
At the beginning of the year this old quilt came off the machine and then bound & finished in February.
I actually pieced this quilt from a QNM in 1999, the year I was made redundant from the bank. As you can see from the pic on the right, mine wasn't quite the same. I took the photo of it yesterday while we were out on a "photo shoot" in the countryside.
As February drew to a close this one below came off the machine. One of my own designs using fabric on hand, one which was some my late Mum gave me years ago that she came by from a friend. It depicts the Tour de France.
In May I made 2 more baby quilts. One for the lady across the road who had a girl in January & another friend who had her little girl in March. I used the same pattern for each, which I'd again designed on Quilt Wizard as an introduction to new quilters, which has happened yet. They make up quick which was a bonus.
May also saw me quilt a QAL I joined in with Sandra from mmmquilts. I really enjoyed this challenge.
Taken yesterday whilst out and where I had wanted to capture this quilt in a hilly setting.
