Update, update! UFO completed!

WOW!  It's been a long time since posting and A LOT had been going on.  in Sept 2013 I moved into a house with my mother in town... we both have our own sewing room but we share our stash of fabrics... 

I've been doing a lot of quilts and have gotten more into patchwork quilting then I ever thought I would!

I shall endeavour to post pics of some of these quilts along the way, but my most recent completed UFO is my sewing machine cover and instead of the planned over the arm pockets I made a pad with pockets for in front of the sewing machine to keep things within reach.

Here is a pic of them both:

Crazy Quilts long over post

These quilts were all completed in the Summer of 2012 but I never got around to posting about them.  Today I was looking at a blog post about scrap quilts and to comment if we'd made any. Well these were all made from scraps (other then the background of course.  Even the border of the blue one is done with scraps :)!

Sweet Dreams quilt

I have finally completed this crib size quilt.  I had my mother layer the batting, top and backing and machine quilt  most of it and then add the binding.  That was before I came across a tutorial that made me realize I could do small quilts on my own kitchen table using painter's tape.
Once mom was done she returned the quilt for me to do the hand quilting around the angel and the words which are quilts with a cloud shape around them.
Sweet Dreams
This quilt will be travelling to my new Great Grand Nephew come Friday when I can make it to the PO.
