Sarah, is one of my co-workers who recently caught the quilting bug. She says I inspired her with all the things I bring in to show her. I also share the photos from QCA with her. She is 21.
This is her first quilt, a present for her boyfriend. She was very excited about it throughout the entire process. I couldn't wait to see it. I think she did a wonderful job and her BF will love it.
She is already planning the next quilt which we will be making together.
Another holiday wall hanging. This one was a breeze to make. It took me less than half a day from start to finish. The center is a panel from Moda's "Crazy 8" line by Sandy Gervais. When I saw it in the LQS I knew I wanted to do something with it. I think the dark borders really complement the panel. Once again I used a decorative stitch on the binding.
Valerie is a co-worker of mine who has been busy making baby blankets for the holidays. I'm always interested when I find another person who likes to work with her/his hands. The blankets are adorable. She makes holes all around the perimeter then crochets a border onto the blankets. She's thinking of making a quilt with fleece blocks connected with crocheted sashing. I think that will look great. Here are two of her blankets, one for a girl and one for a boy.
