I have been extremely busy lately getting some thing done. It feels so good to get these finished. It has been about a year since I made these if not more. Time goes fast doesn't it?
First.... a Dresden Plate that I made out of some scraps just to see if I could do it. I hand quilted it. Not that great at it and have only tried to hand quilt a couple of times but you don't learn if you don't try!
Second....This quilt, loved the quilt but hubby had bought the quilt frame for me and although I had practiced quite a bit on it I still didn't have the hang of it but went ahead with this quilt anyway. I was not happy with it when it was quilted and debated on tearing it all out and said it can sit. And sit it did but I love the quilt and finally said time for this thing to get out of the UnDoneBox and get Done. So I put some binding on it and it is all done and on the bed. I had a nice flannel sheet for the back of it.
Then I figured that some practice wouldn't hurt on the quilt frame because I have two more twin size quilts to get quilted. One has been sitting here since I can't remember because I couldn't get any backing for it for a long time then the other one has been sitting here about a year. So I made a quilt out of some sheets and am working on that. I am getting the hang of the whole quilt frame thing but have a long way to go on it yet. I can't do anything fancy just some meandering is all. I will have "finish" photos later. The quilt is not anything fancy or great just rectangles but something that was easy and quick to put together.
