Soon after we moved to the Plateau I joined a group of ladies who get together to sew at a church in town. We would sew, have lunch, and share a time of prayer and praise twice a month -- until the Covid lockdown.
Next week we will get together for the first time in over a year (with a few modifications to our routine). Rather than sew that day, we are going to show and share what we have been working on during the time away. So I did a quick inventory to see what I wanted to take to show. Turns out my time of I-sew-lation was quite productive -- roughly 46 projects in 15 months. A lot of what I have accomplished has used pieces and parts from the orphan bin. Bear in mind that a top/flimsy, which most of mine are, qualifies as a finish in my world.
Three wall hangings - My favorite is Everlasting. It started with a fat quarter and grew from there. It is staying with me and will probably get some custom quilting.
Five wheelchair quilts - I realize I never posted about one of my favorites. A couple of years ago I started a mystery quilt hosted by Kevin the Quilter. I got bogged down early in the process but had quite a few units already made (the gold and white in the center) so rather than have them go to waste, I put this together. I think it has a masculine look to it so I will back it with flannel for a wheelchair quilt.
Eleven baby quilts - Most of these will go to the local guild that supports a pregnancy crisis center. My most recent is Ann of Green Gables. I wrote about it here.
Sixteen throws - A lot of what I make is in the 50x60 range so I categorize them as throws. My favorite is Twisted Ribbons, a Cindy Williams design. It has beautiful custom quilting and, even though it is 50x50, it will grace a big blank wall in one of the guest bedrooms.
Five bed quilts - These fall in the 60x80 range, some would consider a throw. My favorite is the RSC Tiny Tuesday sampler started in 2019 and carried over to 2020. This one is going to our new great-grand-daughter.
