The last couple of months have been very busy! I’ve been to California to visit my daughter, taught multiple classes, quilted some quilt tops for both guild charity projects and co-chaired the vendors at the 10th annual Bits N Pieces quilt show. The quilt show was a big success!
I’ve done more knitting than quilting because it’s more portable. I finished this pair of socks after spending many, many hours sitting at the San Francisco airport and on airplanes getting to and from my daughter’s house.
I used Manos del Uruguay Alegria yarn in the Fondo Del Mar colorway. The pattern is Basic Socks from juliesmitten. I’ve made several pair from this pattern and find that it fits really well.
I also finished this cowl. The pattern was the Appia Cowl by Hilary Smith Callis. I used Holiday Yarn Silver Sock yarn in the Black Widow colorway. This interesting yarn has actual silver fibers spun into it for a bit of sparkle.
I fired up the Handi Quilter Sixteen and quickly quilted two children’s quilts. One was for the Piece Mill Quilters guild and the other was for the Bits Cover our Kids charity project. These came as kits that included the top, backing and batting. I also did a quick machine binding on both. While I was warmed up, I went ahead and quilted a top that I had basted in January! This is the Cancan quilt from Aardvark Quilts using the Kaleidikite Ruler. I used a fat quarter packet that I’ve had on the shelf for a long time along with a few additions. I call it Citrus Cancan.
