Here is my current project. My quilting group is doing a calendar quilt with each quilter doing one month of her own quilt and then trading with others until everyone has a piece done by someone else. The pieces are different shapes for differnt months. January's piece is 6 x 36, (mine is straight !!! although it doesn't look it) Most quilts are going to be anything goes, applique, embroidery, paper piecing, patchwork, embellishments, whatever.
I found my inspiration from what I see outside during this time of year. Dark gray trees, with snow on them and bright white snowflakes.
This wallhanging I made for my mom a long time ago. I call it Aerin's Ladies, as my dd, then 3, helped me pick out the ladies dresses. I really like how I did the sashing and the nine patches at the corners. But upon closer inspection, I realized the binding was fused on and not sewn down. Oh, well, she doesn't wash this and no one else knows....
This is really not a project I would pick to do now, but I enjoyed making it. And with fusible web it didn't take too long.
Today and yesterday were good quilty days. I started an Odds and Ends Quilt. I am using my scraps and odd blocks to make a quilt top. I am using 6 inches for the scrap block but including some orphan blocks of any size, just bordered to fit somewhere. So it is easy to work with different sized components. I don't expect it to be beautiful, but full of memories. I received a BD FQ swap. And the fabrics are wonderful! As usual, I am not working on one project but three or four. Tomorrow morning I work, but the can sew in the afternoon.
