First I'll start by saying sorry to all my good bogpals, that I've been a little wayward of late, but this last lockdown did my head in & I lost all my mojo for anything basically. I kept busy just pottering about doing all sorts, but nothing worthy of a blog post.
I'll start by ..............."wrapping up 2021 in quilts". Beware, you've seen some of these before, but it's a bit for me as an online diary of what I achieved this year in my favourite craft.
Block patterns by Alyce Blyth and set my own way.
Gifted to our eldest grand daughter for her 25th birthday last year.
A pattern by Sandra Walker of mmm.quilts
|Ooh la-la Cats.|
One of my own designs to use up some fanciful cat fabric.
Gifted to a little girl whose parents are in our car club.
A QAL run in conjunction with friend Joy.
I gifted this one to Windgap Foundation for their Xmas raffle.
One of my own designs, just because I could.
Another of my own designs using the attic window blocks I've been playing with for years for the highlight border.
My own design using a variation log cabin block and done in colours that matched
my mood at the time.
My design and another to use up some stash & just because.
Don't you love DH's little car that matches the centre green.
This above and the one below were done with Sandra in her annual QAL and I had so much fun,
that I had to make two.
|I Did it My Way.|
These blocks were started many years ago as part of a QAL that never got very far, due to me miscalculating the fabric I needed, so I finished it as a baby quilt and gifted it to a friend who became a grandma for the first time.
Leftover pieces turned into pinwheels and set together my way.
This was gifted to one of the doctors at our clinic for her first baby.
Also made with my friend Joy this year and put together in our own settings.
Another QAL I joined in with from Jo Avery in Scotland.
Enjoyed doing this using just coloured scraps from my myriad of bits and the backgrounds and sashing from the stash.
Another 2 of my designs made from my stash.
