So, Just What Did I Do?

 

It's time to show what I have accomplished during January and February

I finally got the wedding quilt "quilted" and bound and gave it to
DS and DIL in January. We had a belated holiday with them.

This was a little belated Christmas present for Jilly Bean.

Picnic was my "Word" (or theme) for this year for the CGQC.
Here was my weekend quilt: PICNIC, the cover quilt for
Scrap-Basket Sensations. I really enjoyed making this quilt!
Of course this is the one I had to make. The pattern was called Picnic after all!

Here is a picture of the Fat Quarter Shop quilt sample I made for them, all pretty in it's little vignette.


My goal for the year was to incorporate embroidery into my repertoire
and these tow projects, Henrietta Whiskers  from Bunny Hill and

Birdie Stitches by Little Miss Shaby, her BOM are on my agenda
for this weekend.

Here is my Gone To Market quilt... but even though the top looks finished I have a plan...
I am going to continue working on baskets and turn this small one into the large one...
and I put the piano key border on all 4 sides for the time being... but when I turn it into the large quilt,  I will add what I have on the sides to the top and bottom like it is on the pattern.

Sweet Spot got finished just in the neck of time for Le Petite!

I'll be back to show my embroidery projects, I still have til Monday, right?

You have been busy------very nice. I have been thinking about an embroidery project, it has been a long time since I have done any.

Linda said...

Loved them all! Sweet Spot and Picnic...LOVE them!!

Shelley said...

Loved the show and tell! Did you make the actual quilt that is in the book Scrap Baskets or did you mean you just made one like the one on the cover? Either way, great job!:)

Rita said...

Great show and tell. What fabric line did you use for your Picnic quilt? It looks great.

Linda said...

Oh my gosh! You have done so much (quit! You are making me look bad! LOL!!) and all of it so pretty. Each and every item is really nice. You've done wonderful these last two months. I like your idea with the piano keys.

Carol said...

Good for you Sinta getting so much accomplished. Very nice projects as well.

Cheryl said...

You accomplished quite a bit!! Jan. and Feb. seem to be very productive months for me too. Wonder why that is-hmmm? All the quilts are just lovely, but Picnic intrigues me the most.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

You're making me look like a slacker. Actually, I do a pretty good job of making me look like a slacker. :-) I can't believe all you've accomplished! And everything is gorgeous! I love the Bliss in your Picnic Quilt. And the Sweet Spot quilt is adorable. I think I need to take you fabric-shopping with me!

I'm behind on my blogs, you've been a very busy girl! I love your plan for Gone to Market, it sure looks great now, and with more to come, that will be amazing.

Congrats on the FQS sample, you did an outstanding job! I'm guessing it will be a popular item for Kimberly.

Of COURSE you needed a picnic quilt, I love it!
