I can’t believe that apart from my In flight Quilt a Long blocks I haven’t shown you any crafting. Although this year is a slower one due to other commitments I have still been doing as much work as I can. I just haven’t blogged about it.
This year for me is all about helping a friend on her Cancer journey, so lots of hospital appointments and being there for her. But I still get plenty of days to quilt ;-) At the moment anyway. We have to just take each day as it comes as plans change depending on the response to each treatment.
Want to see the quilts I’ve made this year?
I made and ANZAC quilt. This is now a wall hanging at my house. I didn’t have any relatives at ANZAC, but my Great, great-grandfather was at Ypres and Paschendale during WWI.
A Batman quilt for a customer.
A crosses queen size quilt that was sent to Australia, surprisingly only $5 more to send to Australia than to the South Island of NZ.
A quick strip quilt for a wee girls bedroom, the fabric matches an earlier cot quilt the customer bought.
This was a special quilt, for my best friend, to keep her warm during all her hospital treatments and recovery.
A quilt for an Au Pair, a gift from the employer. Favourite colour blue, The mountains of NZ.
Pretty scrap quilt, it feels good to use every last little bit sometimes.
Double-sided Out to Sea quilt, a match for the one I made Cameron a few years ago, which went with this one down to the South Island (we have so many quilts, Cameron was happy to give this one a new home, I’ve promised a Darth Vader quilt for his bed instead).
Today I’m just about to start a custom quilt. It will be a present for an 80th birthday. I made my MIL one for her 80th a few years back, she loves it. A good idea for someone who probably has everything.
I have another block done for the quilt a long, so I’ll post that later.
