I had no CLUE I would be receiving from the Fantastic Pioneer9 today!

I am amazed at the wonderful Wall Quilt she made for me. 26x20 inches! WOW!!!
*little warning: total picture heavy!!!*



As a non-quilter (I would so love to be able to cut and sew with precision), I am in awe of the stitching/piecing skills here.









In taking the pictures, I couldn't get a good shot of the quotes from the top left and bottom right corners.
The quotes on those are:
"That's clever. Is it clever? Why is it clever?"
"Sherlock Holmes, put your trousers on!"

Like I said, I love this quilt! I'm going to have a fun time figuring out where to hang it that I can look on it often.
Thank you so so much Pioneer9!

Yay! So glad you liked it. I had fun making it... it may be the best thing to come out of Hurricane Sandy, as I don't know if I would have been quite so ambitious if I hadn't had a week off of work Smiley

Our faithful organizer, Alchamy513, received from me earlier in the week and it's been crazy busy for her (in addition to a nasty cold) so we agreed that I could post pictures.

One of the things she said she might like to receive is something wearable, so.....

I made for her a reversible Sherlock/Moriarty Apron and Hot Pad set!



Sherlock side:
The Sherlock Fabric was calling to me in Joann's and the rest just fell into place.


(Pocket)

Moriarty side:
I loved the stylishness of the pin dots on black! SO WESTWOOD!


(Pocket)

The apron pattern was a mash-up of about 4 different ones I've seen around pinterest and been dying to try.

Now for the Hot Pads:



Alchamy513 is the proud owner of the best job I've ever done sewing bias tape!

It was a blast making these things. Our organizer didn't get to have the mystery (because she is the one to set "partners"), I wanted to make sure she got a little extra oomph with the Hot Pads.

I think Mrs. Hudson would be proud!

Oh wow, that's an awesome set! I can't decided which side I like more, and those pot holders are really clever!
