Firstly two sets of foot pedal mat, scrap bucket & coaster - for Birthday gifts for members of KQ Girls.
Last year at Baradine - I received a bundle of flannel scraps as a mystery gift. Never one to shy away from a challenge...LOL....I decided they had to become some sort of a quilt. The sizes of the bits were quite random, so I cut 2.5" and 4.5" squares and made 4.5" blocks from the 2.5" ones and then set about trying to organise them,...It is probably not as symmetrical as I would like - but I ended up with only one 4.5" square left over. I found the brown check flannel at a cheap price and - again - probably not my first choice - but it went well enough with the other fabrics.
Voila - a quilt!
and I also bought this flannel for the back - really love this one!
DD2 loves monkeys so I might keep this one
...in case...one day...maybe...(no pressure Bec!)
Also last year at Baradine we received a kit to make a tote bag - a lovely stitchery of the logo was included and a charm pack...as well as some EPP shapes. I started off with gluing the EPP shapes at retreat....but upon consideration,decided a tote bag was not really my thing - so I made a zippy pouch, a scrap bucket, a coaster and a pin cushion. I used some of the fabrics on the back of the zippy pouch. I still have a number of covered EPP pieces.....they may be sitting around for a while....maybe a needle book????
At Baradine this year - one of my projects was to make a Jelly Roll race quilt. This jelly roll was gifted to me by a friend, so I thought it was only fair to "pay it forward" and this top will go off to a group who make quilts for charity groups - so a finish in my eyes!
My swap present for this year was a scrap bucket, pin cushion, coaster and a machine foot pedal mat...I do like to repeat myself....LOL
I have also finished a baby quilt for the daughter of a friend. This pattern is so quick and easy - I can see a few more in my future.....
So, I will count that as 7 finishes so far...
not too bad I think and there will also be a pile of crochet blocks to add after Sunday
none of these are on my SS UFO list...for that I am woefully behind . . .
