Applique quilt finish

I appliquéd this quilt for DGD for her first birthday.
The appliqué was needle turned and it was machine quilted.
It was fun to do

Many finishes

I have had many finishes in the last few weeks.
First up was 29 little quilts.
They are  20 inches square ( 50cm) and are used for premature stillborn babies.

 I made several from each fabric

The one below is my favourite.
I fussy cut the image for the heart

 This quilt was made by my mother.
I have quilted it for her and now she is stitching down the binding.

I just finished quilting this sampler quilt.
I used it to teach a class in advanced patchwork.
It was pieced by hand and then machine quilted.

These two crocheted rugs are for Hamlin Fistual Hospital in Eithiopia

ninteen finishes

I thought that I had not been finishing many things but I had really just got behind in publishing things to the blog.
When I looked at the photos I had ready to upload I had forgotten about things that were finished.
The first is a scarf knitted for charity


Five towels trimmed with swedish weaving, 3 to give and two to keep.

Four knitted tea cosies.
Now my pots will stay warm.

I recovered this couch and made new cushions

A cardigan for a great niece

A sweater for a great niece.
The photo does not do the pattern justice.
It has cables and basketweave stitch.

Same patterned cardigan, different great niece

New mitt for DH

Two sleep sacks for granddaughter.
Minkie looks and feels lovely but is awful to stitch.
