I had been making quilts, that's for sure - it's part of life for me, a big part. And in the midst of all the chaos in the world, creativity that is also productive seems more important than ever.
So the first quilt I was very keenly using up scraps with a Bonnie Hunter pattern, one she made when she was experiencing what she felt was like the plague back in 2019. It seemed appropriate to me in 2020.
It's a Courthouse steps, but the strips are various sizes. I had fun with the quilting on it too.
The next one was one for an expected grand baby of a friend. I also wanted to take the opportunity to try a new free- motion pattern before using on another quilt.
The pattern I was trying for the first time is in the white sections. I always doodle on paper first of all, but like to practise on small areas, often a placemats or similar, before using it on a quilt. I was pretty happy with how this went.
The backing, not quite enough of one fabric, so the pieced cross shape worked well.
Very pleased I got to practise the pattern before launching into this quilt. Happy with the result.
So they're my finishes, until the next time,
