Gwen's Quilt

Christopher & Jamie finished Gwen's bedroom & she was able to sleep in her own room.  Jamie had picked the theme Owls for her room, so I was finally able to make a baby quilt for her.

The quilt finished at about 45" x 54".

 I also made a pillow to match the quilt.

It is 14" square.

I had wanted to try making & putting on piping & inserting a zipper for easier removal to wash the quilt.

Hearts & Stars Quilt

Finished this Hearts & Stars quilt in January.  It was a Craftsy course by Anne Petersen called Continuous Line Quilting.  I had gotten the course and material in 2014 and finally got around to getting it done.

The materials was Kaffe Fassett Shot Cotton - different and I used various variegated threads on the front to complete the free motion quilting and just one variegated thread on the back.

It finished at 40" x 45".

Candle Mat Swap

Quilting Group had another quilting swap this past quarter - this time it was a Friendship Candle Mat Swap.  Michele Foster provided the group with two designs & we were to choose one and send it.  I also made two coffee mats & two wine coaster to match - I had also included some candles & Canadian  souvenirs.  (I had forgotten to take a picture of the back this time…)

 Angela Torlop, from Tasmania, Australia was my swap partner & this is the mat & goodies she sent.
