There were some other finishes, however. I started small with this tiny Spring quilt, measuring 6x6". It was done in time for Easter, but barely.
Our Easter guests brought these beautiful roses. They continue to get prettier each day. This pic is for you, Allie!This is one of my favorite quilts, and I actually finished it in February, but didn't get it photographed. It took me a couple of years to find just the right pattern for fabric I bought in New York when I went to visit my friend, Di.
The pattern is Star Gazing from The Pattern Basket. I pieced this at the fall retreat, and I think everyone else loved the pattern as much as I did. And this was my first ever all-over free motion quilting that wasn't stippling. It's not perfect, but I'm getting better!
Charming Stars was made with red and white fabric that I acquired in a swap a few years ago. I had 15 strips of 5" fabric that I could not decide what to do with for the longest time. After joining a SAL for this pattern and making one quilt with shirt fabric, I decided this was the perfect pattern for the strips.
I decided to make a star from each fabric rather than making it scrappy. It's a very happy quilt!
My final project for March was a pillow cover. The old pillow case was ruined and trashed a couple of years ago, so I've been looking at a naked pillow. My original plan was for a simple pillow case, but then I decided to put a little more effort into it and do some quilting. The fabric has been hiding in my stash, and is finally seeing the light of day.
And I already have a finish for April!! I had to do some stitching for FNWF, so I finished this small wall hanging. This was given to me crumpled in a bag, and I was thrilled to see that it had all been cut out and fused. I merely had to applique and quilt for a finish.
I don't have the pattern, but I think it may be a McKenna Ryan?
I continue with my efforts to clean and organize my sewing room. And this means cleaning up small projects that have been started. More good stuff to follow!
Keep on stitching....... Sunny
