Working on numerous projects, some for giving, some for the Etsy to replace a few things I may remove since they haven't sold (why won't folks buy beautifully hand quilted, high quality pieces at almost giveaway prices????), some for no reason whatsoever.
Disappearing Nine Patch that was supposed to be random florals. Well, during construction of the blocks, I hated it more and more. Random was just too haphazard, using only fabrics from my bins. Changed plans from twin quilt to lap quilt because I just could not stand to continue with it, slapped a bright spring green border on it and stuck it on my design wall to work on something else. Except for one patch that is really too dark, it started growing on me and almost, if you squint, has a watercolor feel to it. I may quilt it after all, LOL. I've named it "Floral Chaos".
Tried the French Braid method for the first time. Super easy. Did two small table runners that I'll give as gifts to family. Yes, I've suspended my "no quilts to family" rule for this year and we'll see how it goes.
And this "use whatcha got" super simple lap quilt is for my BIL, who suffers from COPD and I just know will be sitting in his apt with the heat off to save $$ this winter. This has a flannel backing in a fishes and lures motif (he and his dad were avid fishermen years ago) and I used cheapie poly batting so it should be a nice thing for him to throw across his lap while watching TV.
