Finishes


Being a grandma means I get to make some of these.
I DO love baby sweaters!!
There's the YARN.
There's also the SIZE.....ha ha!!
And the BEST part....
Is seeing the little one WEARING IT!

I also finished this half square triangle quilt top this week!

It was a FUN challenge working on my color VALUES!!!
Some of the fabric is outdated and
some is downright ugly.
(it was a personal challenge to see if I could make it work!)
It also contains quite a bit of purple.
Not one of my TOP colors.
But...
I do like the design.
The squares are 3 1/2".....
Not quite small enough to HIDE the ugly fabric.

  7. Very cute baby sweater, love the colors. The quilt turned out beautifully, I don't really notice the uglies, it's the play of color that's most noticeable. So mission accomplished.

  9. Beth! You're a genius! I love that quilt top and I'm also not a fan of purple. In fact, I don't really see "ugly" fabric in there (I think there is no such thing as ugly fabric - it just needs to be placed within the right patchwork :)) I'm sure you agree.
