Starting the Year with Finishes

I finally got around to quilting NYC Scraps.  I made it last spring at Victoria's.

I used an overall squiggle with colorful thread.

Here's the back and binding.  It's good to finally get this done!
I think Malti approves.

My son's corduroy quilt was all tied up by Christmas, with my husband's help.   It has wool batting and a plaid flannel back.  I'm happy to say that he loves it!

I made a little flannel quilt for a new baby boy who lives in Brooklyn.  It includes scraps from flannel pants that I'd made for my son when he was a toddler.

It's pretty easy to make a cute quilt with sock monkey fabric!

You've been a super busy quilting bee! I love your zig zag quilt. Every time you look at it you'd see a different combination or favourite colour of the day. Your son is going to be SO happy with his quilt!! The tying looks wonderful. Your husband is a star for helping you, how lovely to work on something together like that. Lucky baby!! Sock monkey's are the cutest!

I love this quilt. You photograph your quilts so well too. I should get organised for photographing quilts but never seem to find the time.

The baby quilt is gorgeous and so is your dog - what a smile!

WOW!
You've been busy!
Fantastic foursome........gotta say those sock monkeys are just adorable.

So is the flannel from over 20 years ago better than todays flannel?

Happy Sewing, I gotta get some stuff finished before I start more....I always want to go onto the next thing!

Your NYC Scraps quilt is fabulous! I love all the prints and the zig and zags going vertical....fantastic! And the corduroy and tumbler quilt are wonderful as well. I love a tied quilt :) So precious.

Hi, LeeAnn. You're starting out the new year ambitiously! The corduroy quilt is cool and I really like the NYC Scraps. I think it's the reds that make it dance.
best, nadia

I especially like this zig zag quilt because I can see some of my scraps in there. I love how you put all the fabrics together in such a happy combination. What a good time we had at that retreat!!
