Juanita here. This will be brief. I finished up a couple of quilts late last year that were intended as gifts. One for my sister and one for my granddaughter. Also a small Christmas ornament project which I didn't start until about the 19th of December. Crazy, right? Anyway, just wanted to show off a little.
The quilt for my sister is a variation on a log cabin and I named it Gail's Log Cabin. This was small enough for me to quilt on my own machine.
The quilt for my granddaughter is a project that really started about maybe 2 and 1/2 years ago when I found some fabric I really liked at a little quilt store up in Long Beach, Washington called Boardwalk Quilts. I purchased 5 fat quarters. I then proceeded to supplement those with about 12-15 additional fabrics. I wanted it to be "scrappy" and I think it definitely is that. It is a big quilt, measuring about 72 wide by 92 long so I enlisted a very good Long-Arm Quilter here in Port Orford to do that quilting for me. I was able to give it to Livie in person at Christmas. That is what makes all the effort worthwhile.
Those Christmas ornaments were a last minute little project I found on YouTube and were a lot of fun. I played around with different buttons, beads and charms for embellishment. I want to try to make a few more later this year.
Here is Gail's quilt being shown at a small quilt show up in Bandon.
