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.
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!
