Quilts, PJs and Bags!

During the COVID-19 SIP, 

  • I made over 250 masks for ANMED (Anderson County workers, family, and friends scattered all over the country).
  • I made dust covers for my Bernina 880 and 570
  • Six in-the-hoop notebook covers

I’ve also completed five quilts and have five quilt tops ready to quilt or put together. I make quilts for my doctoral students when they graduate, and am finishing up the last of those. Pictured are two of the last few quilt tops I need to quilt. I have a sort of pattern I developed in which I use blocks designated as a state block or named as such (like the Ohio star or Road to California, or the Oregon Trail) representing states in which my students have either taught or earned a degree and fill in with blocks that have animals found in Wyoming (where my students earned their PhDs) fussy-cut for the center of the block. Below is pictured the quilt I made for a student who brought back batik fabric from her vacations in Alaska (in the churn dash blocks).

My recent projects. Summer Pj shorts I made for our daughters back in New York and New Jersey. I put a hanging loop on back. The 2 pot holders & Jam for my sister in New Jersey.

When you weave your own fabric, You need to use every little bit of it.

Now a whole set made from the one piece of fabric. A purse, a wristlet and a checkbook cover👍🏻. Still leftovers so will make a coin purse.
