Choices

 

The wall hanging top is finished,

all pieces fitted together,

phew…

Looking for a name is

just as difficult as thinking about

how to quilt a quilt,

many options….

Spinning Sea glass…

Blueberry Ice…

Glacier…

Ice Floe…

Arctic Flower…

Diamond dust…

I’ll let all these names

and associations “percolate”…

Who knows…

I might come up with

a good idea for quilting, too.

Soft and cuddly yarn,

love the color combination.

But first,

I have these socks

on the needle ;-)

I baked another cake…

It’s my “one weakness”…

Looking for a name

 

Hi there!

It’s been cold,

snow shoveling,

again and again…

Call me crazy, but

it looks beautiful to me

when it’s all white!

When I looked through my stash last week

the shades of blue was the color combo that appealed to me – not really a surprise I guess…

And so I started cutting,

and cutting.

Slowly getting into shape…..

If you look close,

perhaps you can notice that I changed the dark blue,

I found another one that matched better.

I’m pleased with the colors,

but I don’t have a name

for this wall hanging…

Any suggestions?…

Before sewing the last pieces…

I had to bake a cake yesterday,

don’t you feel hungrier

when it’s cold?…(or is it only an idle excuse?…)

I assume the rest of the cake will be gone this afternoon,

DS2 said “it tastes good, mom,

you can bake it again!”

Have a lovely and creative week!

Sewing with love for the tiniest ones


Hi there,
it was about time to make more preemie quilts
so that was a good idea to start the year.
Preemie quilts are fun to make, you can use so many scraps and also try different patterns.
When I saw the Peek-A-Boo Street pattern from Stephanie I instantly thought it would be lovely as a baby or preemie quilt.  It’s well explained , thank you dear friend! :-) Take a look at her site, she also has great patterns for bags!

Then I made this one using stripes and appliqué:

A panel and coordinated fabrics:

These motifs are so sweet:

During the last weekend I made two more, what a good feeling!
Three quilted in a row:

Aren’t these Teddies sweet?

I’ve sorted out part of my stash,
looked for the fabrics for my next project,
and I’ve just started something.
The pictures will be on my next post.

Wishing you a cozy and lovely weekend!
