I need to get back to this one. It’s coming along nicely though – right?
Needles: sz 10.5 double pointed Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Superwash Bulky (less than 1 skein white and 1 skein dyed).Cast on 68 stitches evenly over 4 needles (using the 5th needle to knit). You can really cast on any number of stitches you want to get the size hat you want – this frees you up to use […]
I’d never knit a baby gift before – but when the occasion arose, it was time to find the perfect quick, easy and (most importantly) cute baby bonnet for the soon-to-be-born babe. Mom-to-be tells me that a girl is expected, and so the internet search for an appropriate pattern began. It ended several hours later […]
This top is still in the design stages. The plan was to start with a centered 9-square block, and then move out from the middle with variations on that block.
After babysitting for a soon-to-be 4-year-old boy we made a visit to the Asheville Cotton Company. He asked for a space robot blanket so I made this one for his birthday today. I hope he loves it!
This quilt was made from a Layer Cake pack I picked up on sale at FatQuarterShop. I really, really love this shop. I haven’t yet backed and quilted this one; it’s a top only for now.
My best one yet. I’m really getting the hang of this free motion quilting thing. Next up? It’s a mystery really; I’m reaching the point where I have fewer “must finish” projects, and more time to finally contemplate my own quilt. Oh, oh! And I have to set up my NEW QUILTING ROOM! But you […]
Elspeth’s quilt is finished. The big thing I learned: using Singer brand machine quilting thread on Singer brand bobbins and as the upper thread on. Singer 9960 machine (optimized for quilting) doesn’t work. If I’ve ever used crappier thread in my life I can’t recall it. Gutermann from now on -always!
By now, Moira’s housewarming quilt should hand arrived ( along with a few other goodies). And so here are photos of it. :) I am really pleased with how this one turned out! In making this current series of quilts (the Housewarming series), I’ve specifically chosen 5″ blocks for each person, but also allowed for […]
I finished a quilt last weekend, and used free motion machine quilting in a spiral pattern over the whole top. The quilt was a gift for a friend’s daughter who entered hospice care recently. Finishing it was an emotional experience (Marc graciously helped me through my meltdown). The quilt is well appreciated by its new […]
