I'm Still Here! Quilts of 2012
Hey! I'm thinking about giving this blog a proper go. Anyone still out there? As 2012 comes to a close, I'm seeing some year in review posts and thought I'd do one of my own! First up - my Giant Starflower Quilt inspired by this quilt by Jeni of In Color Order.
It was started in 2011 but not completed until February of 2012. It was given to one of my sisters. Made completely of vintage sheets. Second - A quilt for my niece Olivia, finished in April (I think!) and mailed to it's new home in Florida. I tried to keep it simple to showcase some of my favourite prints, but to be honest, it didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped. I still like it though!
Third - A quilt that traveled all the way to Russia. My husband spent 2 weeks there this past summer to help with construction on a church and this was for the Brubacher's. They are missionaries in Russia and it was such a privelege to be able to make this for them. It features some of my most favourite fabrics :)
Fourth - A quilt for my Dad and step-mom Karen. This quilt was for their 25th wedding anniversary, which we celebrated with them in Myrtle Beach!
Fifth (and last!) - A quilt for my great Aunt Marg, who was in a very serious car accident in October. She spent about 5 weeks in hospital and still has a lot of hard work ahead of her. Hopefully this quilt brings her some comfort!(Made using this tutorial from the Missouri Quilt Co.) I've been busy being creative in other ways in the last year too, but that will have to wait for another post! A belated Merry Christmas to all! Bethany
