It's that time when I like to look back on what I accomplished the year before. Despite all the craziness of 2020--including moving to a new state--quilting was an integral part of what kept me focused--and sane :) So here it goes . . .
Dutch Panel was the first finish of the year :) Rachel had given me the panel many years ago but I only started making this quilt in 2017.
By this time I had already made 12 blocks for the Ella Maria Deacon quilt--a 21-month BOM offered by Gay Bomers at Sentimental Stitches. I welcomed new techniques including foundation piecing, something I had only done once before.
January's Mini was inspired by a little quilt on Pinterest.
I used a reject Deacon block for February's mini. This one ended up being too small for the quilt.
March mini was really quick and easy. I had just about packed up everything in my sewing room but figured I could squeeze in just one more thing :)
I did machine applique (a close zig-zag stitch) for this broderie perse Deacon block.
We moved the end of March and this was the first quilt I made in our new home. These Churn Dash blocks were from Barb V's swap.
One of many Deacon block applique challenges.
Finally piecing together patriotic leftovers for May's mini. . .
. . . and choosing pre-cut scraps from my bin for June's little quilt.
That's it for now. I'll continue with the rest of the year next week :)
I can't wait to stitch the binding on my Basket Quilt and I'm going to do that today!
Have a great week!
