spring has come

After a few false starts the spring is finally here, so it's time for the Winter Stitching wrap-up.

These you've already seen finished in the previous Winter Stitching post:

1. Finish the Australian quilt.
2. Sew my first ever skirt.

3. Make a baby quilt for our friends' little boy.

4. Make a new quilt for my sister.

 These are still in progress:

5. Prepare more blocks for the wonky kites quilt and of course make the quilt. - top completed, still no backing.

6. Make a quilt for my little sister's (i.e. cousin's) wedding - blocks for the top are ready, but no peeking yet.

7. Make the red/pink/brown diamonds picnic blanket/smaller quilt with the ex-hexies from Lynz. - I'm afraid you're going to laugh at me, but it's back to hexies, with this stripe in the middle and a bit of space on each side. This is just the design, but I'm halfway through with piecing the top now.

(the Australian quilt was used as a design "wall" here)

These are the new (or rather not-yet-summarized) finishes:

8. Make a mini quilt for Modern Mini Challenge

9. Make one more quilt about which I'm not going to reveal much until it's finished - i.e. the not-so-secret quilt for my Dad

10. Finish the wavy quilt for my friend - there's just the binding to be hand stitched now, so I hope you won't mind my putting it in the finished section.

On the whole - not splendid, but not too bad either, don't you think?

(Of course there were also a couple of fails, as the making of 241 totes as gifts my friends has moved to some very distant future and I totally gave up on a mugrug for Quokka Quilts Mug Rugs of the world, but let's not dwell on this too much, ok?)

  1. I think that is a very full list because they are all big, and beautiful, projects.

  2. Great work! I love everything you've been doing. xx

  3. Great work on the list, but my absolute faves have to be the mini modern and the wavy quilt. Beautiful

  4. You have finished a great deal, I love all of your projects.

  5. I think you've done lots and your quilts are just lovely! Thanks for linking up :-)

  6. Lovely projects. I'm partial to your dad's and the friend's wavy quilt, though, because I just love teal, aquas, greens and blues. :)
