2 Finishes for 2016

Here are my first 2 finishes for 2016.  Joining this group has certainly keep me on track.  Both my quilts are string quilts and the blocks are made by sewing strips onto a fabric foundation.  All my string quilts are donated to cancer patients in my area.  I love making these quilts and never get tired of trying to make each one a bit different.  Here are pics of my finished quilts.

FIRST QUARTER 2016 FINISHES

The first quarter of 2016 has reached an end.  I found it stimulating to keep at my quilting and I got 6 out of 9 projects done.  I am so happy with this achievement.  I can move my 3 left onto Quarter 2 so it is not a lost effort.  Here are my finished quilts.  Click on the picture for a larger size.

These quilts will be donated to my local hospital for the comfort of cancer patients.  I love making these quilts that average 42×60 even if the design is the same for all of them.  I just never get tired of making them.  I have 2 sets of blocks made for my next 3 quilts that I will do in quarter 2.  I am going to slack off a bit as I want to finish my 3 from quarter 1 and get outside and enjoy some sunshine.

FIRST QUARTER FINISHES

Well I have the first 2 items finished for our Quarter 1 Finish Along.  Item 1 was my first string quilt done in green.  I had most of it done and only had the binding to finish.

My second item was another string quilt and I added a border to bring up the size. See my little dog checking on what is happening behind that quilt.

I have another string quilt ready to quilt with green/yellow center strings; another top finished with black center strings ;    a set of 24 blocks made, so I just need one more set of blocks to make my 6 string quilts.  I think I will make it for the end of the quarter but I don’t know about my other 3 projects I listed.  Oh well, it is fun and certainly is helping me get caught up on some projects for this year.

Moving On

I have been without a blog for a year now so I have decided to make a new one.  My old blog SamanthasHouse had some issue where I could no longer add pictures so what point was there to having one when pictures were the fun part of a blog.

I have chosen Handmades by Jeane as I have expanded my field of crafts.  I still continue to quilt and have added sewn and knitted doll clothes, knitted and crocheted baby items which I will donate to the new Saskatchewan Children’s Hospital being built in Saskatoon, SK and now scheduled to open in 2018.

Be patient with me as I progress through the startup of this site, please!  I am not a very fast learner of this computer stuff and if you want to drop a comment you are welcome to do so.
