These are the blocks we’ve made so far at the quilting class. It’s for beginners, but she has given us other projects to do for people who already know how to sew.

Here is a baby quilt I finished last month for a friend who had a little girl. I love it, she wanted something "really girly" I think this fits the bill!
I am in the process of making a huge quilt for my mom, I think you'd call it a sunshine and shadow. There are 80 blocks to it. I have them almost complete, then I can sew them together and finish the top. I post photos of that as well tomorrow!
I started the Mermaids of the Deep Blue by Mirabilia in February. I am stitching this for my friend in Utah, and I just think it is gorgeous. I have been kind of doing a rotation, so that is why they aren’t done yet. This was a project of many firsts, first time using linen, and first time using metallic thread. I love it though. I think it’ll be hard to give them up, but it’ll be worth it to see my friend freak out and fall in love with them even more.
This project has been in my life for about 4 years now. It’s HUGE and was one of the first ones I really started and wanted to finish. I work on it sporadically. It’s beautiful, and I am getting closer to seeing it finished. It is The Four Seasons by Marjolein Bastin. I can’t wait to hang it on my wall.
This project is The Snow Catchers by Fanci That. It’s so cute! I’ll probably have this done in the next few weeks, I’ll make it into a wall hanging for my house during Christmas time.
