42  Downton Abbey in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: January 10, 2015 08:46:15 PM
I have to laugh when I read my subject line - Downton Abbey - I know nothing about it except that it's a British television show.

I have a friend, though, that loves it and when I told her last March that I had seen Downton Abbey fabric, she joked that I should buy some and make her a quilt for her birthday.  I thought, why not!  I purchased it in April planning to have it done well before her December birthday.  Yup, that was the plan but it didn't happen.  So tomorrow I'll be giving her a late birthday present.  I never would have dreamed of making her something, let alone a quilt, but when she gave me that idea, I took the opportunity.

Disappearing 9 patch with a pieced border.


First, and probably last, time I've done a pieced quilt back.  It was hard to get it centered and if anyone were to measure, you'd discover I'm off by an inch.

The 9 fabrics I used from this line - what a hard decision to make.  This is no where close to my style so I tried to think of her house and what would go well in it.  She's very Victorian and has said many times she was born in the wrong era.

44  January's Little Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: January 06, 2015 03:21:45 PM
I recently joined an on-line quilt group and we are making Little Quilts each month.  I decided it would be best to try and finish them the first day the patterns are released so that I actually make them.

This is January's and it's 15" x 16".

My first project is finished!!  Actually made it January 1st but have washed it several times trying to remove the marks I made when I chickened out to free motion quilt the snowman.  Hasn't completely gone yet but I don't know what else to do so it looks like I'm stuck with a pink tinge on it.

I decided on December 26th that I couldn't let the year finish without hitting my goal of 14 in 2014.  It's a stretch to call these 'quilt' projects but this is how I justify it ... quilts have a top, a middle of batting, a bottom and are sewn together ... that's what these are  Grin

50  Teapot Cozies in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Homerof2 on: December 28, 2014 08:28:47 PM
I've had a teapot cozy my MIL gave me many years ago but I've never really liked it because the creator didn't pay attention to the fabric and the objects on one side are upside down.  I finally decided to make my own by taking that one apart and using it for a pattern.

The green snowflake one was my first attempt and when it was finished I thought it was a little too snug.  I then enlarged the pattern and made the sunflower one.  Once I put that on the teapot I realized it was too big.  Back I went to the snowflakes and with a bit of figuring I was able to make it fit, which I'm very happy about because that's some of my favorite fabric.

The center layer of each cozy is heat proof batting, like you use in oven mitts.
