Finally some new quilts

I had been itching to finish a sewing project. I'm working on a bigger quilt, using 2½" squares from my stash, but that seems to take ages. While going through my pre-cut stash I found a box of leftover bits from some really old projects. One was 1½" squares from a  QAL Between Charming Friends in 2010! Some rearranging was needed, but soon I had a sweet little quilt for dolls. I used some flannel for batting so the quilt is not too stiff for play.

In the same box was a huge collection of HST squares from the Shadow Play quilt you can still see in my header. First I made these two little quilts,

and then one more:

Naturally pillows were needed too:

After I had sewn pillowcases and sheets, my Susan tested the sets:

The HST quilts were all the same size so we only tested one.

I was going to show my newest sock in September but never had the time to take decent photos of them. Sock selfies are not easy!

"Fake Cable" pattern on my Autumn heather.

Bright colors for the coming dark and rainy days.

I like to try new patterns for my knitting but usually end up knitting stripes with yarn rests and coming back to my trusted favorite patterns for interesting surfaces. 


  1. Some very sweet doll quilts made from your leftovers and some lovely sheets and pillow slips too.
    Love your bright socks too.
