I need to get caught up and show some of my recent projects.
I'll start with the big one! A quilt for my mom for Christmas.
The quilting was done on my Bernina 530. It was my first time free motion quilting and I was nervous but I'm glad I went for it. I really like the texture it gives this quilt. If you can't see from the photo, I used a loopy all-over design. I was on the fence about whether to purchase the BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator) which helps you get even stitching when free-motion quilting. I finally decided against it because A) It's outrageously expensive and B) I almost never make quilts! I did fine without it, so it all worked out!
After that was done, I felt the need to do some quick and easy projects.
Next I made this cute doll for a friend's baby:
Pattern available here: Dot Dolly by Herbst on Etsy
then this Doodle Jump Guy:
For this one I made my own pattern on butcher paper.
I used fleece from JoAnn's because of the wide range of colors you can find.
I think I can fit one more project into this post,
A skirt for Maura's birthday!
Maura worked at the snack bar for her brother's basketball game, what a nice helpful teenager!
Exactly the kind of skirt I would have rocked at her age!
It's drafted using panels and bustled using elastic sewn into each seam. I got the directions from a tutorial I purchased on Etsy, but it's since been removed.
That's it for today.
I hope you all had an excellent Holiday and New Year!
