Sooooo, I’ve been away. Mainly health issues that are under control for the time being.
However, that did not stop me from being all quilty crafty, okay, it slowed me down quite a bit but looking back I was surprisingly productive.
The real news is the big finish. (Not the best picture, I know, we took it at night to be sent out first thing in the morning).
That sucker, aka Blue Oasis, took about a year to finish due to the health stuff. It was promised and started at Christmas time 2014 and got to the recipient by about Christmas time 2015. The recipient is my brother in law who chose the pattern from a Pinterest board I created for him. The pattern comes from this book:
Which can be purchased and printed on demand from C&T Pubishing
I managed to make some coasters out of the scraps from the quilt as well. I loved doing that. I think I might make that little extra a habit. . If you are wondering where the UNC fabric came from that was on the back.
…and in case you are wondering it was a foundation paper pieced quilt so all the little pieces had to be removed once the top was finished. Yippee, or as I like to say “it’s about the process”.
So, there’s a little something to welcome you back to my world. I think for the next little while I will be skipping back and forth from current projects to things I accomplished over last year. That should give me quit a bit to write about for a while.
