Quilt #4

is a wall hanging from a pattern by Mary Stenros of Willow Bend Designs. She lives here in Soldotna. I did the top years ago before she started laser cutting them, so it's now much easier!! I finally quilted and bound it last month.

#1 quilt for 2016

This quilt which I named "Kaffe's Bakery" is at the shop. The large print is a Kaffe fabric and the pattern is from Modern Relish called Bioche and Bagguette. See where I got the name?!?

is from Bonnie Hunter's pattern, Dancing Nine Patch. Instead of scrappy 9 patches, mine are 2 colored, er, patterned.
This post is numbered 38, but I didn't include aprons, bags, etc. I finished this year. My grand totals are....(drum roll, please) Starts for 2015: 38 Finishes for 2015: 42 Hooray! I finished more than I started!! I am starting 2016 with only 23 WIPs---down from 36 in 2013 (my highest). We will see if I can keep up the momentum...don't hold your breath!

This one is on the spare bed now--in time for Christmas!
Now I've got to get the one for my bed quilted and bound.

is made from Moda 10", 5" and 2.5" squares sewn together with raw edges out, higgledy piggledy. The line is French General, hence its name: French General Squared. When washed a few times it will be all lovely and fray-y.

Friday visitors

I looked out the kitchen window and saw these two at the front door, so grabbed my phone and took pictures through the glass in the foyer. I'm sure the little bull won't be around when he's legal!!
And thanks to them, my pansies were cut back!!

These two are in the shop--fun patterns!
I've been at camp for a crafter's retreat this week and was very productive (for a change!) The blocks for 4 quilts were pieced, a 5 year old started on hand piecing and much fun and fellowship was enjoyed.
