This is a quilt I have made several times. This is the first time I turned the blocks on point to squeeze them into the backing flannel. I rolled the flannel over to the front to make the binding. This was made for a friend using some of her fabrics from a previous quilt.

At our November guild meeting I picked up a cute pattern from the “free” table. When I pondered it I realized that I had many different left-over strips of Christmas fabric from a woven table runner project that I made for gifts several holidays ago. I started playing around with making little colorful packages, which resulted in two table runners. One I gifted; one I kept for our seasonal table.

Another stash buster quilt for CARES Northwest. It’s such fun when everything, including the batting, in the quilt is from leftovers from other quilts.

Christmas pillow cases, two pairs.
All the thread I burned through in 2022. I haven’t added up the yardage yet. This was a New Years game. From time to time my husband would ask how many miles of thread did you use. I think this year will definitely top the 50 miles one year.

My sister-in-law showed me a panel quilt she was completing and I just loved the Santa image in the panel. It’s my childhood image of Santa. I ordered a kit to get pieces of the fabric line and then changed the borders. My quilts have ‘Wonky Stars’ reduced to 4 1/2 inch blocks. Set the stars on point. Had a great time quilting the panel. Made 2 quilts for 2023 gifts.

‘Winter’. 50×61 inches. Quilt was a struggle because a couple of the ‘cut’ directions were the same as the ‘finished’ pieces. Required some ‘coping’ pieces. Overall quilting with snowflake image. Backing plaid was also a challenge to match. Despite the challenges, I like the quilt.

Thanks to Christie, my neighbors received a Holiday hot pad as a Christmas gift. They were thrilled and said the joypads were too beautiful to use. Thank you, Christie!!Linda Hot Pads
