Okey Dokey... this seems just made to order for someone like me. Well, truth be told, apparently i am not alone, as there are already over 80 linky's for Rhonda's second quarter linky; check it out. Bloggers can be SO ingenious! I didn't know about this in the beginning of 2012, but I just found it yesterday, just under the wire.... so I'm signing up. Here's my list, oldest to newest:-
#1) Ye Olde Bento Box:
The pattern is by Tracie Brookshier. Here's link to images: Other Bentos Mine is a biggun: 90'x105. Not sure how old this is... I had made it for my son & his wife, presented the flimsy as Christmas gift anticipating getting to quilter after the Christmas rush... years ago. Surely, this one can get a back, sent to long arm quilter, sleeve added, bound & label by the end of June!
#2) Karen Poetzinger rug hooked hot pad:
This is my first, ok my ONLY rug hooked project. (Photo is wonky as to orientation, sorry.) Karen, an incredibly accomplished rug hooker, wool dyer and artist, taught a class here long ago. I took the class, then took forever to finish... and yes, if you look carefully, there is a date in it... 2009... really? really? Told you I needed this blogging inspiration! I just need to bind it.
#3) Bee Skep wall hanging:
This is the first block of a 2012 project in a monthly applique workshop group I have been attending for @ 7 years. Now, everyone else (who finish their projects) is doing a whole quilt, but I am only doing a couple of the blocks... This one was started March 19, 2012. I'll add a couple more bees & make it into a pillow.
#4) Hand pieced mini quilt:
Hmm, this one looks a tad over-exposed... still, you get the idea. It is 9x15. I took a class April 3, 2012 with Froncie Quinn in hand piecing, and I got the best results I have ever had in those tricky little places where 4 pieces meet. Here's a site for Froncie's pattern website. Among other things, like learning a lot about antique quilts, we made a couple of little nine patches in class; I came home, made some more, then added the little borders. Now it needs to be quilted, bound etc.
So, a relatively short list, long post tho. Thanks to Rhonda for her wonderful Finish Along 2012.
Happy Stitching all! Becky G in NC
