Hello and Happy New Year! The first thing that needs to go on this post is one last quilt from Louise. This one has components from Tracy L, among others. It had a dye-bleed issue due to one of the backing fabrics, and due to space constraints on her boat we decided that I would tackle it here. Fortunately, with a 24h soak in Oxi and Dawn it came clean!
I'm so glad Louise made the past two posts and told us about her process for making her beautiful quilts from orphan scraps. I always love what she does as much as you all do!
I recruited my mom to help take quilt pictures recently. Mina has sent in another of her friendly village quilts.
Tina C. continues to benefit Covered in Love with her stash busting. She sent in this wintery sampler.
I had to get a close up of the quilting visible from the back.
She also sent in this lovely, simple saturated blue quilt. I wish I'd gotten a better close up of the fabrics.
Finally (for now) Linda S. sent in this beauty with detailed piecing and quilting. I love the slightly random pieced border.
I had a great trip around Christmas and saw many friends and family that I haven't seen in a couple years. I hope that many of you were able to catch up with your families as well. I am soaking up my downtime at home now and catching up on chores that were pushed aside.
