I’ve managed to complete a few more quilty things. I made a wall hanging for our family room and also a scissors holder. I liked the scissors holder so much I made some for my friends.
I’ve managed to finish a few wool appliqué projects this year. I took a class a few years ago and decided to pull it out and finish. After I got started I couldn’t stop.
I want to create some small quilty projects this year so I have been making the free patterns that Pat Sloan puts out each month for her Button Club. They are smaller wall hangings that fit perfectly on the door of my antique bookcase that I store my antique quilts. They are each embellished with buttons. I started in January and have managed to make one each month.
I like to try to make something patriotic every year. This 1/2 square triangle quilt I saw thumbing through the latest issue of McCalls Quick Quilts caught my eye. I also am getting LOTS of use out of one of my Bloc-Loc rulers. I can’t imagine doing this quilt without it. I might just get this finished before Memorial Day!
