Some year end projects...

It's that time of year when all the normal routines fall away and the busyness of the season takes hold. I have been sewing and finishing up some projects, but haven't taken the time to share here on the blog. Maybe some of us Instagrammers are getting a little lazy on the blog front. And it hasn't helped that there's been so little sun here for picture taking in maybe a month?

So I'm dropping in today to share a few photos of some recent finishes.

Cheerio pattern by Thimbleblossoms, quilted by Crinklelove.

Peppermint Float in Cotton + Steel, quilted by me...

A mini quilt made by me for a Christmas exchange. Tutorial found at Modern Handcraft...

I love the Cotton + Steel Feather print binding on this one...

After you make something for someone else, do you end up making another for yourself? More Hexagons...

And that's a wrap on the sewing for this year!  I'll be back with some year end collages and some thoughts on the future of the blog {and there is a future}.

I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday. Enjoy every single little minute!


  1. Happy Holidays to you too and love the quilts! especially the hexagon mini!

  2. Such pretty quilts! Thanks for another year of inspiration and PLEASE DO keep blogging!

  3. Beautiful finishes. We're suffering from he same gray sky problem. And I'm so glad to hear that there is a future for the blog. :) Can't wait to read all about it. Have a great holiday!

  4. Love the last quilt in this post...the simplicity of the design and the use of a single colorway. Where might the pattern be found? Thank you.

  5. Your quilts certainly light up gray days! The "background sashing" in peppermint float is simply wonderful! Enjoy your holidays!

  6. Wow, you have been busy. Everything is so beautiful! Have a wonderful Christmas!

  7. I just adore the colors of your projects. That hexie one is a winner, for sure! I'm a bit guilty too of slacking on the blog front, as I've been sucked into Instagram in a big way! But it's good to still have the personalization that comes from blogging. Thanks for sharing, and have a blessed and merry Christmas!

  8. Beautiful projects! What a great finish for the year. Looking forward to reading your thoughts of blogging going forward. Happy Holidays!
