5  Mini Quilt Swap ... send by Feb 11 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Homerof2 on: January 08, 2017 09:38:02 PM
This is a Mini Quilt Swap, not an Art Quilt swap
there is a difference and I'd like people to understand that before signing up

A Mini Quilt has a pieced top, batting center and backing.  It's quilted together and bound around the edges.  It does not have embellishments.  Use applique sparingly if necessary

6  Keepsake Ornaments from Mom's Jewelry in Winter Holidays by Homerof2 on: January 03, 2017 10:28:47 PM
My mom passed away in July of 2016 and while I was helping dad go through her stuff, I discovered she had many Christmas themed pins.  I decided I would make each of her grandchildren a Keepsake Ornament using these pins.  Dad wanted one and then I decided myself and my brother should have one too.  I have not made mine yet because I ran out of time before Christmas.

This collage shows the front and back of each ornament, with the exception of the bottom middle and right, which are the ones for my own sons.  The top left is my dad's and it's quilted.  The next three are rag quilted and then three are in plastic balls.  

Everyone loved them and I know they will remember their wife/mom/grammie/nana every year they are hung.

7  T-shirt Quilt for Son 2 in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: January 03, 2017 11:51:00 AM
I've been planning to make t-shirt quilts for both our sons for a number of years.  Son 2 moved across Canada a few years ago and when we decided to spend Christmas with him this year, I decided to make his quilt so I could deliver it rather than mail it.  I made this plan in October but it wasn't until December 12th that I actually started it ... who starts a quilt like this 10 days before they leave!!  Cheesy  One day before we flew east it was finished.



I had to use our garage to lay it out.  Based on one my mom had made me, I used as much of the front of each shirt that I could and sewed them to a flat sheet:
                     
     
When that was finished, I laid the top over a heavy flannel sheet and tied the two together rather than sewing it.
                     

He loved it, as did Son 1 - I told him his would be made this year and delivered (thankfully he lives close)

I received from Inselaeffchen today and since we are leaving for holidays tomorrow and don't have room to pack it, I opened everything.  It's all adorable and so me  Grin


Isn't the snowman stocking so cute!  The other snowman is a cuff for a coffee cup.  I adore penguins and will make good use of all those items as well as the knit cloth, which are my favourite kind.

THANK YOU Inselaeffchen for being a wonderful swap partner.

I received 2 ornaments this week ... one from our wonderful organizer (THANK YOU) and the other from noooitaremybirthday (she didn't sign her user name but my detective skills helped me figure out who she was)

noooitaremybirthday sent this wonderful birdie, which is perfect for me as I'm a bird watcher and it looks wonderful on my tree.

I received today but I don't know who it's from as it only had a first name and address. 



Thank you.
