A Belated Happy 2016

I haven't posted for a few months for various reasons, but none of them very awful or worrying.  I just didn't have anything to share and also got tied up with personal things.  I have finally been able to get back to making quilts and would like to show them. 

I did complete the quilt I was working on for my sister and gave it to her for Christmas.  She was very pleased with it which is very gratifying. 

A few weeks ago I began work to finish the PatchKats quilt (by Denise Russart) and have the top done.  It's very big, I think the largest quilt I've ever worked on.  I had to purchase 3.5 yards of 105 inch backing.  Quilting this monster is going to be a trip.

I went back to making the blocks for Jacquelynne Steves' Sew Sweet Simplicity
quilt from last year.  I'm working on that while I wait for the fabric I've ordered for a quilt I will be making for my sister's middle granddaughter.  At Christmas she asked me to make her a quilt; I love that. 

 I used my Sizzix for the apple applique. 
So now I have two blocks and either 2 or 4 more to go.  I'm going to use this as a table cover.
I hope you are all well and enjoying your time to create lovely things.
God Bless!
