Fancy Cats and a Fairy Tale Confection

One of our quilt guild members has made a commitment to finish at least one UFO (UnFinished Object) a month.  I've decided to follow her example.  Of course, I start at least three more projects!  But, progress is being made.

A glimpse of the back

I started the Fancy Cats quilt in August of 2016, and the top and backing hung in the closet for months, waiting.  I finally finished it in October 2018.

I started Fairy Tale Confection ages ago, even before Fancy Cats.  Finished it in November 2018 (although it still needs a label).

I did hand appliqué, machine appliqué, machine piecing and quilting.  All the little appliqué hearts have fairies in them.

Doesn't it look like a birthday cake?

A Shawl is Coming

A new crocheted shawl design is coming soon.  I've been playing around with a prototype, and plan to grab some more yarn, and take better notes while making the real thing.

I've gotten lots of compliments on this along the way; I think it's the beach-y, soothing colors.  The next one is going to be a little more dramatic, color-wise, since that’s what I have in my stash.  This one still needs to be blocked.  All in due course.
