Hello friends, how have you been? I've got the ick. It was bound to happen, seems like everyone at work has it. Just a matter of time. Any who. Before I had to go back to my full-time job, (shock! horror!) I tried to get as much of my stitching done as I could.
My mother-in-law Ann commissioned me to make her mother, Jeannette Knight, a quilt. The photos are of a cross country trip she took last year with one of her other daughters, Cathy. There's a lot of Knights... I think Jeanette had 10 or 12 children and still has SO much energy! You can imagine she hasn't had much time to do a lot of traveling over the years. So, Ann wanted to commemorate the occasion with a memory quilt. They got some GREAT photos! Looks like she went to DC, New York, Hershey, PA, they caught a Kenny Chesney show or at least saw his tour bus! Looked like they had a grand time & I hope she enjoys the quilt for a long time! I had been putting that off until after the holidays, my December was packed. I was really excited to use that Cherry Mint fabric, I'm so in love.
Hedwig got a revamp and I'm SO much happier with him! I used a solid for his book and I got his feathers in the right place! If I was going to be super picky, I'd put the feather direction going down but there's no way I'm re-doing him a 3rd time. It took about 2 hours to do the one block!Fandominstitches.com. You can find any kind of paper pieced geekfest quilt blocks imaginable! So great!
Lucky the tiny bus. I will share more on that later. That was on my list of things to finish before going back to work but it didn't happen. He's gotten so much done so far and it looks amazing. Yes, I'm bragging up my kid but he's mechanical like his dad without the ADHD and artistic like his mom without the laziness. It's pretty great to see. Check out their blog!
