I finished a quilt. Yes, you read that right. Well, sort of. It’s pieced, but not quilted.
I started this quilt several years ago and quickly got bored making star blocks. I’d pack it away and every time I’d pull it out to work on it, I’d realize I didn’t have the pattern book with the quilt. I’d search for the book, make a few more star blocks, and pack it away.
Last week, I pulled the bin out yet again, and started a google search for the pattern. I think what finally yielded a photo was “Christmas star quilt”. Score!!!!! It’s a Brenda Riddle pattern from the book Comfort and Joy. I ordered the book and finished the star blocks while I waited for the mailman. Then I finished the quilt, and didn’t do it quite like the pattern anyway, because I was going to run out of fabric.
I think this will be one of the prettiest quilts I’ve ever made when it’s quilted
which will probably be two years from now. The fabric is Roman Holiday by Three Sisters for Moda. Don’t even bother looking for it. It’s long gone. I think I saw somewhere that the fabric came out in 2006.
And….another finish, though not nearly as major. I started a scarf last fall with some squishy soft yarn that I actually spun worsted. It should have been a quick scarf to knit, but for whatever reason, my ball of yarn seemed to go on forever. I pulled it out the other day and decided it had to be finished. Frankie had a band concert the other night.
Yep, that’s him playing the tuba.
Anyway, I finished the scarf!
It’s a big squishy roll.
It’s finished and I really like it.
And….there is weaving.
Only it’s not mine. The Genius got a loom for Christmas….a little early. She’s never had a lesson and this is her third project.
We call her The Genius for a reason.
And now I’m off to see what else I can finish.
