Monday Making

It is SO, SO nice to see the quilts I've given being used.
Ooooh! So nice.
Nothing, I think, makes a quilter happier
than when she knows her quilts are USED and loved.

The first was a wedding quilt for my older girl.
It's a Jacob's coat pattern that is ALL hand appliqued.
yes. It took me a long time to make it queen siZed!

The second is a wedding quilt for my second girl.
I pieced hexagons and then appliqued the edges onto a white border.
I really like the look of it on their bed and am happy BOTH quilts
are being used.
:)

I just finished this sweet little vest.
I loved adding the extra color to finish it UP
The ball of variegated yarn I had wasn't quite enough.
I think I'd like to begin another this week
JUST using my yarn stash and creating
a lot of stripes of color!!!

I think quilters knit like quilters.
Haha.
what are YOU making this week???

  3. Beautiful quilts! I agree, it's so nice to see your quilts in use and being loved. The SIT refers to her quilts as hugs from home, which is nice. The vest turned out beautifully. Happy stitching and knitting this week.

  4. I made that first quilt you show too - all by hand - love that pattern but was a challenge for sure - it is such a great feeling to see quilts we make by hand I so agree with you on that

  7. I couldn't agree more! I don't want anyone to be scared of using a quilt. That's one of the reasons why I always wash my quilts!
