I finally finished the binding on my December mini, which you will recall was made using Janet O's scraps (with the condition that I only add one or two fabrics!). I did only add a light and the binding. Otherwise it was all Janet's scraps.
I think this is called a bar quilt. I forgot to wash off the markings for the quilting patterns ...sorry. This was a fun project, especially using someone else's scraps, which I always think are more attractive, right??!! Thank you Janet for sharing your leftovers!
I have started a new project (note that I'm not working on something I already started or identified! That would be too easy). I started doing this block a day being published by Jessica Dayon. I'm going to do it in purple and aqua for my new granddaughter, Leia, who is living in Virginia now. These are just the first two. You can join in at her blog: jessicadayon.blogspot.com. I think the blocks will slow down after New Years.
When I took the picture of the mini, I realized I had some fun things to share on my sewing table. It's kind of an international collection!
I love the clock. I ordered it from Moda. So cute. But the strangest thing is that when I hung it on the wall, it didn't work. Didn't keep time. On my sewing table? Worked great. Hung on the wall? Not so much! STUMPED
The little star pin cushion was made from fabric I bought at the quilt show in Nantes (France) several years ago. I love it.
And the Hawaiian "box' in the back is my "trash" holder which I found at a quilt store in Kauai. I've bought them for all my friends! It's perfect and even folds flat!
One closing picture of my Zeke, which gives you another idea of how large my dog is! Here's he's "standing" at the window seat looking out the window where he thinks he sees some people snow-shoeing out back of our cabin. He does this all the time at our kitchen counters, scanning for something to sneak! The sweetest dog but oh so strong!! He's been loving the snow, too! Buries his face or just plops down in the snow banks!!
Hope you are all healthy (this new variant is scary!!) and having a great holiday. I am sending you lots of love and hugs for a wonderful new year 2022!!
Much love to you all!
