2016 Update

This year has been a blur. I can't believe November is already a third of the way over. I haven't gotten to do as much quilting as I would like. School has consumed my time as well as dating, which is a new problem for me that I'm still trying to figure out. I have gotten a few projects done though.

 Receiving blankets are the ticket for friends and family who live far away. The top two are for my cousin Emma who is having a baby this month. I would have made her a quilt, but the baby shower caught me off guard and I didn't have time. The four on the bottom were for my cousin, some good friends from my YSA ward who got married and moved to California, a mission friend and one of my best friends from Jr. High.
This one was for my mission friend Pam. She loves Winnie the Pooh so when I saw the fabric I just knew I had to make her something with it.

I've been working on a few other projects. Not sure what I'll actually get done by the end of the year but I'm glad I was able to get these out to friends and family to let them know I love them and their new little additions.

Quilting, quilting

I spent 6 weeks of my life working on this for my sister. I had her pick out the pattern and colors so I could be sure she would actually like it. Even at that, I resigned myself to the fact that she probably wouldn't use it. Hopefully one day it finds its way to someone who will love it. It's definitely the most complex quilt I've ever done.

This one for Denae didn't quite make the baby deadline since my time was monopolized by Julia's quilt. But I got it done in time for his blessing. I think it turned out cute. Just don't look too close and how straight my lines are. :/

I've managed to squeeze in a few receiving blankets as well and I've been working on some other projects. Hopefully I stay on a roll and get some good quilting hours under my belt while staying caught up on book club, work, school and trying to have a social life.
