This month I set a goal to make a baby gift for a friend. It’s all finished and gifted yesterday. Here are the pictures of the front and part of the back.
This quilt was a joy to make. Faux Rag quilting is fast and produces great result. I love it!!
Update on my quilted Christmas ornaments. When I first planned for this project, I thought it would be fast and I would make tons of them in no time because they were only 4 inches small. The reality hit when it took me over a week just to make 4 pieces. Anyway, I managed to make 15 ornaments last month. These are for my own tree and giving away to family. Here they are.
Confession, I made only five ornaments with FPP technique, see if you can guess which ones. For the rest, I used improv and made them up as I went. It was more fun for me to make improv blocks. It would be better if I had used the paper designed especially for FPP blocks, I think. With regular printer paper, I found, it's hard to tear the paper without splitting the seams at the end even though I used very, very small stitch length.
I'm a little sad that the year is coming to an end but I'm hopeful for the new year to come. These are the last projects of this year. Now it's time to think about and plan for next year’s projects. I was disappointed that my 2 entries to QuiltCon didn't make it. I didn't join in the QuiltCon Rejects event on Instagram, I feel it's a bit pessimistic to call them Rejects.
This is the time that some of us celebrate the birth of Christ. I'm so grateful that I'm a Christian.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year everyone.
