After I showed you how many table runners I made in the past year, I started to think about how many quilts I made. I did not make any last year, but during the past five years or so, I have made all of these:
Two of the above are not yet quilted.
Oops, forgot this one.
It's still waiting to be quilted.
I also made this blue jean quilt a couple of years ago. I collected jeans for what seemed like forever before I had enough for a king-sized quilt.
I painstakingly hand quilted it. Yes, I was NUTS. It took forever.
I was thrilled to finally finish it and I immediately put it on my bed to sleep under. It did not take more than a few days for me to realize that it was just too heavy to sleep under.
I folded it up and took it to the basement where it still lives a lonely life in a big Rubbermaid tote.
I keep thinking I should cut it up and make something else from it. I just have not yet figured out what. It's a real shame to have wasted all that time quilting it, but if I don't cut it up, I won't ever use it. I thought it might make a nice picnic blanket, which it probably would, but I never go on picnics. Maybe that should be a goal for this summer -- one picnic with the big beast--before I take the scissors to it and turn it into shopping bags (that's about all I can think of to make from it).
Oh, by the way, I went back to Joanne's yesterday and they still had that second jelly roll. Now I am all set for the little pink, brown and orange baby quilt. I sewed another 9 of the 3-inch blocks last night. If I really put my mind to it, I could probably make all the star blocks by this weekend. I think 3-inch blocks are my favorite size to paper piece.
Happy Halloween - Here it is Halloween 2015 and I have done absolutely Nothing! No table, no Halloween décor...............so sad......................... Last Halloween...
