My daughter is an avid quilter. She just graduated with a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering, and is home for two months until she starts her new job. In that time, she has sewn several tank tops for herself and pieced two quilt tops. Here are some of her completed quilts that she has made over the last few years.
This quilt is made from the scraps from the Indiana Puzzle quilt shown on the bed below. She makes a lot of small quilts and donates them to the Linus Project. That rocker was bought at the All-West Crafts Fair in Harpers Ferry West Virginia many years ago when we were living in Virginia.
I love this ‘bookcase’ quilt. She made this one summer when she was home from college. I like the bright colors. She might hang it on the wall in her new apartment.
This quilt was a wedding present for college friends. Because the husband is now an aerospace engineer, there are all kinds of rocket ships quilted into the border. The top hasn’t been quilted yet in the picture above.
Here’s the older daughter in the green shirt, finally finished.
Here is part of the results of our efforts this past week. I still have two huge bags full of plums, but the spouse is going to take them to the office and try to give them away. That usually works.
So far this weekend I have cut out two aprons in a zippy orange print, and a summer top for the oldest daughter. In addition, I spent this morning sewing a knitting caddy for the bed to hold my project bags and keep them from falling all over the bed when I am knitting and watching TV in there.
I see that it is past three o’clock, so I better go load up the breadmaker for the pizza dough. We are going to have pesto pizzas for Sunday dinner.
