    A few more makes

    Here is a Linus quilt, I SITD with a wavy line. Still practicing FMQ before I feel it is good enough to give away.

    I also made 2 bowl cosies, took me 2 hours - so much for a 10 minute make!!

    Mary they are beautiful and believe me, those people who receive your quilts don't know how to sew so it doesn't matter as long as you do your best.

        Very nice! Love the fabric for the cozies. Kudos on the Linus quilt.

              The quilt is adorable and why would anyone "not" love it! Great work.
              The bowl covers are so useful and once you get the hang of it, you will be able to make them with your eyes closed (well, almost...but keep them open!) Thank you for sharing.

                Love that Linus quilt! Super cute. Your bowl cozies are wonderful. They are so nice to have.

                  Thank you for your encouragement. I had intended finishing the rest of the bowl cozies, but got sidetracked (what's new there then) by the left overs from the FQ bundle so I've made pinwheels to make into placemats and there are some scraps which I can do a few mug rugs. It'll be a first for me to use up every bit!!!

                    Your work is beautiful. Just think a little one will be wrapped in love with your quilt. They'll just love it!

                    I'm already getting hints that we need different cozies (just because the ones I made were Christmas fabrics). I just keep telling them you're supposed to keep that Christmas spirit all year long. They aren't buying it.

                      It occurred to me yesterday when I was in my sewing room that what makes the cozy go so quickly for me is that I made a cardboard pattern similar to the one below. With the cardboard, you don't have to pin! All I have to do is lay it over the square on the batting side and mark the darts.cosy.jpg

                        Your projects tuned out lovely. I need to make some bowl cozies but I need to get the proper batting first.
