This year moved at lightening speed for me, so fast that sometimes I couldn’t keep up with blogging and quilt making, along with parenting and working a full-time job.
Today, I’d like to share with you a few of the projects from this past year that I did not blog. Each project deserves its own post, but in the interest of time, I’m compiling the major ones into this one post.
I’ll start off with Ascend. I made this one at the end of 2014, but it didn’t get its debut until QuiltCon 2015, where I’m happy to say that it took home second place in the Minimalist Design category.
On the back of Ascend, I did a little improv play with some scraps.
Another project is Balanced Triangles. This one was featured in the summer edition of Modern Patchwork.
It has a soft pastel color palette and an asymmetric design of triangles. I went a bit crazy with the dense diagonal grid quilting, but oh, the texture!
It now lives on my dining room wall.
I also had a project featured in the Quilting Arts Holiday magazine.
Silver firs is a table runner designed with trees of low volume fabrics and lots of straight line quilting.
With Sliced, I was experimenting with large-scale piecing. It was quite a challenge, but something that I look forward to trying again soon. Sliced is quilted in straight lines with some minimal matchstick quilting in some of the slices.
I’ll be back to share a full review of my 2015 makes soon.
Happy New Year!
