I've been working on several projects since Christmas. I'm showing them in no particular order!
I really shouldn't have started another EPP quilt as I've already got 3 on the go but I just could not resist this - Ice Cream Soda quilt by Tales of Cloth - have a look on Instagram, there are some amazing quilts! Having started it I haven't got very far as I keep getting distracted by other things!
I finished this '2nd Avenue' wrap by Amy Millar, a paid for pattern on Ravelry. I enjoyed knitting this so much! The yarn is all 4ply hand dyed yarn by Tracy of Norah George and Jane of Hedgerow yarns.
We went away for a weekend to the Yorkshire Dales at the end of March and I got it finished in time to take it away with me.
Fabric line is Walkabout by Beth Studley for Makower
From February to the beginning of April 'Then Came June' ran a quilt along for the Meadowland quilton Instagram and I joined in, in my usual fashion I didn't complete the QAL but I've got all the blocks cut out and I've made a good start!
I've cut 2 quilts out using this pattern, one using 'Walkabout' and the other using Moda's Pepper & Flax. The 'Walkabout' Quilt will be lap sized
Moda Pepper & Flax by Corey Yoder
but the Pepper & Flax quilt is for our King sized bed.
These are the blocks I've got completed so far.
The above photo shows that knitting I've been doing in the last couple of weeks - Rose City Roller short socks, one is complete and the 2nd one is on the needles. The peach & grey top is 'Edie' by Isabell Kraemer, knitted in Scheepjes Whirl, colourway 'Watermelon Hell Raiser' and the yoke is for the Branches & Buds jumper by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I'm knitting it in Drops Flora. All the patterns are on Ravelry.
I got 'Edie' finished on Monday and I washed and blocked it yesterday but I won't wear it until I go to Buxton Wool Gathering on 12th May. The Buxton Wool Gathering is a new yarn show put on by the folks that do the Bakewell Wool Gathering that is usually held in October
After Christmas I was still in Christmas making mode so I took advantage of that by cutting out 2 Christmas quilts and some table toppers to give as presents for next Christmas. The table toppers and one of the quilts are being made in Moda Wintertide by Janet Clare, the other quilt is the same fabric line as I used for DD's Christmas quilt, Winters' Lane by Katie & Birdie. Again the quilts are cut out and a few blocks are made but have been put aside. The table toppers need layering and quilting.
I've also been working on a quilt that I've had cut out for ages that is for my best friend. All the blocks are made and several rows are put together, it won't take much to get the top finished and as i will only do fairly simple quilting on it I should be able to get it done for her birthday in a month's time if I pull my finger out!
The fabric line is Paintbrush studios 'Budding Beauties by Ro Gregg, not my favorite colour palette but my friend really wanted her quilt to have purple in it.
Writing this blog post has made me realise I've started a lot so far but haven't finished a lot so it is high time to get some stuff completed!
