Projects 2016

January

My first finish this year is to make a needle case from my 2015 TAST Stitch Sampler.....






February:

My first February finish was made for the Patchwork with Stitchery SAL hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting.  It is a cute little pincushion designed by Gail Pan.





I also finished my 'Cactus Table Runner' which was designed by my son and his girlfriend and made for their flat.





Another finish in February was this cute little Doll Quilt which I made as part of a SAL held by Katrin. The pattern is from the book 'Red Home' by Natalie Bird.




March:

My only small finish this month was a place mat which combined a small amount of applique with free motion quilting.  It was made as a practice piece.



April:

My first finish this month is my Mrs B Sampler Quilt.  I have had this waiting for the fourth block for several years but I decided to piece together the three blocks that I have made and finish this off as a wall hanging.  It is my first quilt that I have free motion quilted.... I was very pleased with the results!











May:

My first finished project this month is a picture made from a sampler of stitches learned during the TAST Challenge run by Sharon Boggon of Pintangle.



My second finished project in May is a quilt made from the practice squares I pieced for an online free motion quilting class by Christina Cameli for Craftsy.  The blocks were all individually quilted and then pieced together using a quilt-as-you-go technique.



The next finished project is a cute little quilt-a-long mystery quilt which was designed and shared by Lori Kennedy at The Inbox Jaunt.







The last finish for May is another mini quilt which I practised my free motion quilting on.  It is a flying geese mini quilt. I took my inspiration for the quilt from one that I had seen on Pinterest.



June:

A mini table topper which I pieced to practice my free motion quilting on. I took my inspiration from a quilt made by Lori Kennedy at the Inbox Jaunt.






July:

This month I finished a needle case to take with me to a workshop as a swap item.  The embroidery was designed by Lynette Anderson.



August:

No projects...... moving house and organising my new sewing room!

September:

This month I have made a quick drawstring laundry bag made for my youngest daughter from some lovely Tilda fabrics!



A fun 'tuffet' cushion made for my eldest daughter.




Another circular cushion made from my CQJP blocks




October:

This month I finished an embroidery it is a 'secret project' which will be a Christmas gift for a blogger friend and will be revealed at a later date.



Here is the finished embroidery now that it has been received.....



November:

This month I finished a baby quilt made for a friend to give to her daughter. The full quilt will be revealed after it has been given to the new mum after her baby is born.



Here is the finished quilt now that it has been received.....


I have also finished a mini-quilt which was part of a challenge set by Lori Kennedy at the end of one of her Craftsy classes which I am following. This was a framed composition.




I have now finished three more mini quilts for the challenge set by Lori Kennedy at the end of her first Craftsy class which I have been working through. The first of these is a grid composition.




The second is a diagonal composition.




Lastly, the third is a medallion composition.




I have also bound my free motion practice piece into a mini quilt so that it can be used for something!




I have finally finished my QAYG quilt.  This is made up of twelve blocks of different free motion quilting designs which helped me to practise my quilting.  The design for the quilt is based one of Christina Cameli's designs from her book 'First Steps to Free Motion Quilting'.





The last few weeks Lori Kennedy has been hosting a Sunflower Quilt-a-long which I have been following.  I have completed two Sunflower Quilts.





My last finished project for November is a Poinsettia table runner which I quilted following a tutorial by Lori Kennedy of 'The Inbox Jaunt'.





December:

My first (and probably my last) project in December is a Christmas Quilt called 'Winter Wandering'.  Made following a blog hop at the blog Ellie's Quilt Place.
