my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

Current Projects

A friendgave my daughter craft kits for Christmas, and I finally broke down and started the Raccoon assembly process. Kendra’s not quite old enough to sew, although I am going to require that she help with some of the stitching and the stuffing!

This pile is evidence that quilting has driven me crazy.  I have a dozen (or more) other projects, and yet I could not resist the temptation of starting a mystery quilt for Quilts of Valor.  LeAnn designs great patterns, so check out her website.  I haven’t finished clue one yet, but the end of the school year is approaching so maybe this will be a June finish.

The football quilt is a commission project for my neighbor’s son.  I have about half the blocks done with the first round of sashing.  There will be a second round of sashing sothe red squares are sort of a chain between the blocks.  Does anyone know of a good football-themed pantograph?

And some shopping…our guild had a meeting last weekend and the vendors enticed me with sales like “Fat Quarters…Buy 5 and get 1 free!”  I’m trying to keep my selections tone on tone since those play well in scrappy designs.  I bought full yards of the red, blue and gold in the bottom right – good colors for QOVs.  And the purple and green on the top right were part of my raffle winnings!  Yep, lucky me, I got the “Lavender Blooms” basket with 5 half yard cuts.  Not bad for the cost of the tickets.
