FAL 2018 – Q1

New year, but it’s a pretty familiar list…

1. Mom’s Stash Quilt, #3

Quilt 1 and 2 were so loved that a third is requested. Mom’s stash of fabric is still going, even after making King and Queen quilts… maybe the third will be the end of the suitcase of fabric?

This quilt is my #1 priority, and I’m spending at least 30 minutes a day working on it until it’s done.

2. Night Sky Quilt

I loved this quilt the moment I saw it. I have 9 of the blocks assembled…

I started with the blue blocks

3. Blue Lucky Star Quilt

I bought all of the fabric to make the quilt top for a friend. Then he stalled and so did I. I want to get it done and out of storage.

4. & 5. Gravity Quilt C & D

I had so much fun with the Gravity Quilts I decided to make more. I bought the Kona kits… which are now hogging valuable storage space.

Gravity Quilt C has all but ONE of the center blocks completed. This is priority #2 once Mom’s Stash is complete.

More Gravity Quilts

6. Downpour Pullover

I went to a yarn night at my local knitting store and discovered Sugar Bush Drizzle yarn in Aqua Frost. I was doing okay at resisting temptation until I saw that colour. Then I KNEW I had to make that Downpour sweater!

Aqua Frost and mohair. Apparently my yarn downfall combo.

7. Gravity Pillow B

I keep forgetting that there is a pattern for matching pillows for the Gravity Quilts, made out of the scraps. This Gravity Pillow is for Morgan’s mom, to match the quilt she got last year.

Time to deal with the scraps

8. Rainbow Quilt 3

I have so much left over from the first rainbow quilt that I figured I would make a second one… and now a third! I have about 30% of the blocks assembled. Part of the problem with this one is figuring out what layout to use for the HST blocks.

Just playing around with different layout options … which leads to too many options!
