Winter Fun

This has been a busy winter, fondling fabric and a trip to Alberta to look after my two youngest granddaughters for a few days while Mom attending a seminar and Dad was working.  We had too much fun feeding animals and building an ice and snow castle.  We also began our first sewing lessons, and Charlotte and Ruby were having a grand time choosing fabric.

I’ve been teaching again at our local Guild.  My monthly quilting group have each been working on various quilting projects and we had three beginners start quilting projects this year.  Such fun sharing the love of fabric with young moms.  When the quilts are done and hung for our spring show I will get pictures.

Our members decided they needed a Members Day learning Raggy quilts so of course I had to get busy making some examples.  I did a traditional quilt with 8″ squares in lovely cottons.  It found a new home with one of our members newest granddaughter.   It’s pictured above.   I also did a fun Churn Dash raggy quilt with some fun leftover border print flannel.  This one became a present for my new great niece.  I hope Jenny likes it because one of our Guild Members wanted to take it home with her!

Then I had to play with some leftover bits of flannel; a Cathedral Window Raggy Quilt made from leftover train fabric.  This is slated to be for my great grandson; he needs a new car blanket.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
