2018 is here! This is a post from January 2017. Two of these quilts have been completed. I have added quite a few tops to this pile in 2017.
This is my first completion of 2018. I took a "hawaiian bag" class from Common Threads Quilt Guild. This will come in handy for my upcoming trip to Road to California Quilt Show. This bag can hold alot of fabric buys!

Our challenge (theme) for the year was to make something with a traveling theme. This is Janice with her quilt

Kathy made a pillow out of one our past year's challenges. It was the dresden plate challenge from 2013. Great finish Kathy!

We also included a challenge to finish any quilt older than 5 years. I have had this kit since 2012. It is hand appliqué.
This was my traveling theme. Tea towels with retro campers! Quick and easy.

I made another Baby Quilt for a Great Nephew due in December. I think I will be making more, my sister said her son and DIL plan to have more children. Love how our family keeps growing!
I also had fun visiting with family. We went to Superior Dairy Ice Cream, our favorite place to visit when my Brother is here. In the picture is my brother Kevin, me, Sis in law Cheryle, and cousin Lynn.

This pillow was made from lace and gray flannel that was gifted to me. My Mom has a friend from Thailand, who recently moved back. She had to sell everything in her house, including her house. She was so generous in her giving. She knew I sewed so she gave me many items.
I have been trying to learn embroidery on my new Bernina. It has been a slow process. But I think I have finally figured it out. My colors are not correct, but fall has many colors!
The next few pictures are items made for The Common Threads Quilt Guild boutique. This fabric I found at one of the quilt shops on my recent trip to Sisters Oregon.
I thought this could either be for a man or a women cook! Who loves fishing??
I had enough left over fabric to make a pot holder to go with the apron.
Another Table Runner.
Coin purses, or card holders
I found this lipstick fabric at Road to California last year, and fell in love with it. So fun!
This was a "pop up" bag I made. Pattern is by "The Fat Quarter Gypsy".
