What’s Next

Naturally I have started work on Christmas projects.
First, a “big boy bed” quilt for my younger grandson, which is ready except for binding.  Here are some of the cute fabrics and the cozy flannel backing:

I made a set of Christmas place mats for a quick place mat class I’ll be teaching in December.And I’ve finished the top for this quilt to be given to some special people who presumably do not read my blog!This is a modification of a pattern I found in a Quilter’s World publication called Autumn Colors:I kept the size of the squares and the idea of wonky stars. I love wonky stars! However, I added a row of squares all the way around, repositioned the stars, and eliminated the big borders. I’ll show it again when it’s quilted and bound.
What are you up to?

  1. We’re having friends for dinner this evening, so I’ve been doing a bit of housecleaning (freshen dining room, open the table and dress it, etc.), checked the status of bills, …. normal home stuff. I haven’t managed to work on any quilting/sewing since getting back 2 weeks ago. I think that will happen this week. No plans to make or quilt and Christmas presents this year.

    Your projects look like a pleasure. Love the stars quilt, and it’s always fun to make that first big-bed quilt for a little one!

  2. Lucky grandson. His quilt looks so cosy.
    Your star quilt is stunning — such a clever modification of the original pattern. Love the way the pale stars stand out from the background of squares. Looking forward to seeing the finished version.
    Also like the placemats.

  3. Hello! Your Christmas projects are absolutely wonderful! Your grandson is going to love a nice, soft, flannel backed quilt in those fun colors👍🏻. The placemats are very festive and your Christmas rendition of Autumn Colors is spectacular! Your Christmas appears to be well on its way:). I am busily working on shawls for my mother and mother in law along with a few charity blocks. It is nice to meet you:). Have a great day!! —Tracy😊❤️
