It’s Been a While

I’m finally feeling better, but my blog has been sadly neglected. 

This was my last finish for 2009.

Quilted Bag 007

The pattern for this was in a recent issue of Quilts and More, and while it wasn’t difficult, I wouldn’t rush to make another one. 

My first finish of the year was this quilt:

Kit I Won 001

You might remember (who am I kidding, I don’t even remember what I had for lunch yesterday) I won this kit a few years ago at a Shop Hop.  When I put it together, I really didn’t like it – but now that it’s quilted, it’s growing on me. 

I used a new to me panto called Ambrosia and I really like this panto and I can see it being used a lot in the future.

Kit I Won 003

We had a real treat at our Guild meeting last night.  Carol Goddu, a member of our Guild and an award winning quilter, gave a lovely presentation of her pictorial quilts and we got to see a lot of them up close and personal.  Her website doesn’t do any of her work justice – the detail in her quilts is amazing as is the variety of fabrics and the different techniques she uses.
