“Christmas M & M’s” I was lucky to win a bundle of fabric in December from the monthly Inspirations. I used those fabrics and fabrics from my stash to make a Christmas table topper using the M & M colors in the Christmas mixture.

“Happy Colors for Claire” This cheerful quilt was made for a family friend using an easy pattern. Everything was great until it came out of its first bath and one of the fabrics had bled. It then had to soak overnight with Dawn dish liquid and take a second bath. Thankfully the annoying bleed came out.

“Orange Peel Pillow Cover” I made this pillow cover using the rich batik winnings from the January Inspirations meeting. I used a medium Orange Peel petal template for the petals. The cover includes an inset zipper with a cover and a bound edge.

“The Maple” I have always planned to make a “fall” quilt with a leaf theme. I picked up Ann Shaw’s Maple Leaf pattern at Fiddlesticks in January. Seemed like the time to do the quilt. I used a fabric applique technique for the central tree. And scraps.

“Dotty” This was my 5th finish in January. The top was made from a jellyroll. I quilted it with a straight stitch and with accents of zig zag using an orange/gold thread. It was finished with a flange binding.

My neighbor is getting ready to have a surgery so I took a Bible verse panel and cut it up. Made it into this quilt. I used Quilters Dream Wool batting, and Minky on the back. For a nice, soft, cuddly quilt.

Five of my Retreat Group zoomed to open our Missouri Star Advent. One day, we received a ‘sweater’ template and a package of small Christmas prints in a charm pack. We challenged each other to make a wall hanging which would be revealed at our Fall Retreat. I used the idea of the UNICEF Christmas cards of the 80-90’s for my quilt.

“Poppy” I love poppies, and love Ann Shaw’s pattern. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make this quilt, but with her methods it was easy. It took a long time for me to tackle quilting the quilt myself. I love it and am very proud.

“Logan’s Long Leaf” This quilt is for my great nephew, Logan Royce Almeida. He is now almost 8 months old but was born at 28 weeks. Everyone is thrilled to have him in our family. A special thing about this quilt is that it has some of the same fabrics as his big brother’s.

“Colorful Sheep” Rainbow Color Challenge blocks for 2023. The black and brown sheep were my own choice for the two additional blocks I needed. On one of the CARES Sewing days, I was working on the black sheep and commented on how the facial features don’t really show on a black sheep whether it is alive or a quilt block. My friend commented, “Why don’t you give her pink toe nails.” Which is exactly what I did.

“Frolicking Fellows” One large kit becomes two quilts. The original quilt was designed to finish at 66″ x 88″. These quilts are for CARES Northwest. I could not picture a young child carting around a quilt that size, so I bought extra blue fabrics and made two the size a child could cart around.

Genius or need for Intervention????
I just refurbished 3 sets of towels by binding them! Each set (2 hand and 2 bath towels) took one yard of fabric, cut in 2 1/2″ strips, all acquired at our silent auction! I used the Clip on Fabric Guide for easily cutting those strips and the Folded Corner Clipper for effortlessly diagonal piecing the strips and connecting them in the end. I now have new towels!
