Let’s not forget all the sewing I did

4 01 2009

In my last post I did a quick recap on what I knit in 2008 but I forgot to show all that I sewed during that year. As you will see, I have a lot more finished sewing projects than I had knitting projects.

Sewing and Quilting FOs of 2008

I sewed 32 box bags, 8 pillow covers, 3 quilts, 2 bags, 1 apron and a few more little pouches and coasters. I feel  more and more comfortable with my sewing machine and I hope that I will learn many more skills in this new year, including making buttonholes!

I made 2 sets of coasters since the beginning of the new year as well, and I finished my pinwheel quilt yesterday. On Friday, I finally decided to tarry no longer and start hand stitching the binding. I worked many hours but by the end of yesterday it was all done! I took the quilt outside this afternoon and got a few pictures.

The first photo I took out in the snow, the colors are a little washed out but you can see it in full. It’s not quite big enough to cover our queen size bed but I think it would fit nicely on a twin size bed.

This one shows truer colors, even if you can’t see the entire quilt.

I’m really happy with this quilt. It will make a nice lap blanket in the spring!

I love the pinwheel quilt but the one for your mom with the greens and pinks is my favorite!

That quilt would look perfect at my cabin!

You accomplished a lot in ’08. The quilt is beautiful and would be very cozy on my lap right now (it’s a little chilly here this morning).

I’m taking a class starting next week to learn how to use my sewing machine. I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile. I’m hoping there are some quilts in my future!
