I have 3 different things going on in this posting.
1st is the finished Fair Isle quilt I made for my friend Pat for Christmas. I gave her the top on time but had to take it back to send out to the quilter. I finally got it bound the first week of the new year.
Pat is the person who pushed me into knitting as I pushed her into quilting. This quilt tied the 2 together so nicely.
She knits me Christmas gifts and I quilt hers.
After all of those solids I had to get some dots for the backing.
I just love the way it came out. For me this pattern was challenging primarily because so many of the pieces were 1 1/2 inches. Way smaller than my comfort level.
Love the colors
this pattern is by Lee at Freshly Pieced
you can find it there.
2nd, I am retiring at the end of this month. While cleaning out my desk I found this tiny little cross stitched ornament. It's on perforated paper.
And last but not least
I have finished the tops for the 2 Little Letters quilts I started on September 7. The pattern is by Temecula quilts and can be found here
The patterns for the letters were released every Wednesday and Sunday for 13 weeks.
The blocks were so easy that I decided from day 1 to make 2 quilts The one with the lime green inner border is from the kit I purchased from Temecula Quilts. The one with the the dark dots in the outer border was made from my scrap bin. They measure 39 by 45
I thought it would be a great day for photographing them but the white outer border on the one with the green inner border kind of got lost on the snow and when I used the pines as a contrasting background the breeze wouldn't cooperate.
It's OK they will be back once they get quilted and have a little more weight to them. Hope to get to them some time next month.
I've also made a couple of post cards for a Valentine swap due to go out in the mail next weekend. Can't post until they get where they need to be.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
