Every problem being an opportunity, I think we’ll review the projects completed in 2020 because of the opportunity to spend much more time at home 😀 In fact, I got so much done that I’m splitting it into two posts so my head doesn’t spin. Here’s part I:
I designed the quilt above based on a barn quilt I saw every time I drove to town. The design was created in EQ8 and Eileen Fowler at McCall’s Quilting transformed it into a design of her own, giving me credit for inspiration.
The above quilt was designed in EQ8 and made with scraps. Studio Stitch offered the pattern free with purchase. I loved using all my colorful scrap strips.
I made a bunch of postcard-sized art quilts as samples for a class I plan to teach on making landscape quilts. COVID happened, so the class hasn’t been offered yet.
I made a bunch of donation quilts, including the two above constructed from orphan blocks. Several quilts went to a local at-risk infant project, and there’s another pile waiting to go to Ronald McDonald House.
That is surely enough for one post! To be continued…
It’s remarkable how much we can accomplish when we’re staying home more, isn’t it? Looking back at 2020 creations almost makes one feel tired! Your quilts are great, and it’s good to see you making up your own designs after being inspired by what’s available to look at on the Internet. I think too many quilters are making patterns to sell for designs that are simple to make. So I appreciate your ability to figure out, on your own, what you want to do. Well done!
I’m making a plaidish quilt too. Hardly makes a dent in the fabric I have. Lol.
It’s a well-known fact that fabric multiplies when we aren’t looking 😁
What a remarkable procession of quilts. Looking forward to part 2
Thanks, Mariss 😀
Wow. You have been busy. Love the work. Looking forward to seeing more.
Thank you 😊
Well, now this one allows me to post a comment with my new name and doesn’t ask for a password…..(I didn’t actually post a comment but it gave me the space to do it under that stupid username I wrote down!)

It’s a computer, which explains a lot 😆
