I did purchase 17 yards of fabric - 12 yards of handed dyed fabric from Vicki for a quilt that will be finished in January or February.
I sent Vicki a picture of the above rendering of a quilt I wanted to make and she helped me choose the perfect colors I needed to make my quilt sing. I made my quilt with 11 columns to fit our bed and picked a brown for the background. I do have the quilt top made and will be sending it to Alycia for some custom quilting in January. So I won't count the fabric as used until I get the binding on it next year.
I also purchased 5 yards of this fabric, just couldn't resist it.
My granddaughter was here for a few days and wanted to help make a quilt. She picked the pattern and fabrics. I did the cutting and she did the piecing, which had to be redone each evening after she went home. She came back today and with her mother's help, quilted it. I put on the binding. It measures 71 inches square before washing. It is going to Alycia.
Does anyone else think it looks like a giant Swoon block?
I got my new quilt rack. Deanna's dad made it for me (and for a bunch of other folks). I love it! My quilt rack is holding 4 - 100 square inch quilts. It is so sturdy and looks great and is really well made. I was worried that it wouldn't hold 4 large quilts but it does and I couldn't be happier. I am ordering another one.
The heart quilt in the above picture is the 5th quilt I made. I gave it to Bill for Valentine's Day and named it "With All My Hearts". Each heart is made from heart fabric, which was really hard to find in 1996. Bought most of them at the Ben Franklin store.
I feel pretty good about accomplishing most of my goals for this year. I still have a few weeks left and maybe I can check off a few more finished quilts.
