2017 was a year of making quilt tops. I finished a few small projects, quilted on my Austen Album quilt, but mostly I did a lot of applique and created a lot of UFOs.
My big achievement was completing the 1857 Album quilt, a pattern offered by Gay Boomers of Sentimental Stitches.
Completed projects were small wall hangings. I completed several 2015 Row By Rows.
|This row was from The Pincushion in Imlay City, MI|
|This row was from Waterford, MI.|
|I bought this Jane Sassaman pattern and fabric when she spoke at a local quilt guild.|
I just made a printed panel into a wall hanging for my son. He received the panel from a friend at Christmas.
I repaired several quilts, including the first quilt I ever made. I replaced worn areas.
And I did extensive repairs to a quilt made by my grandfather's Aunt Carrie Ramer Bobb, which belongs to my Aunt Pat. I appliqued hundreds of 1" squares over fabric that had decayed and resewed seam after seam.
I made a number of mug rugs.
After finding some fantastic Neverland fabric I bought Marion Cheever Whiteside Newton's Story Book pattern of Peter Pan. I have been working on those blocks. I will next add embroidery.
And I am back to working on my Great Gatsby Story Book quilt. I am embroidering the completed blocks now. The designs are based on 1924 fashion illustrations.
I made Icicle Days from Bunny Hill using fabrics I won.
I only was able to do a few blocks of a Christmas quilt sew along.
And I finally made the vintage sheet quilt. I have had the vintage sheets for years.
This coming year I am going to break down and hire a machine quilter. I have too many quilt tops languishing in the closet!
