The first finish for the week is a little pillow for the sewing/guest room/office. Nothing fancy here except for the very lovely fabric...such great texture. My bad, I only purchased enough to make this little pillow. A bit more would have been nice to match the pattern. Oh well, next time. I did follow this tutorial from Svetlana for the zipper closure. Quite straight forward and much easier than an invisible zipper.
Do you remember the first cat quilt and cat bag? Well, I think that cat fabric had more than nine lives in my fabric stash! So, I decided to make this quilt for my dear sister-in-law Kim who is a SERIOUS cat lover and has had a tough year. I am calling this quilt Cat Smiles and I hope it brings a smile to her. I used this Moda tutorial by Amy Smart and added a border for a little extra size.
I did a loopy meander quilt with an occasional flower. I really love the quilting part!
Finally, this week I finished my recap of my First Year of Quilting! These are just the quilts:
Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Fridays!
PS I have a LONG list of potential projects for Year Two. Do you ever run out of ideas for projects?
