Well... most of them have been picked up by now.
For Amy -- Christmas Dresdens
For Kelly -- we got to pick our block; she's making a quilt for her Grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary (they were married on Christmas day)
I did LOTS of little 1" squares (196 to be exact)
I was trying to add some symbolism with this block --
I'll explain my thinking --
- I decided they needed some good old fashioned patchwork
- the bottom is mostly aqua (we'll say that represents Grandpa), and the top is more pink (we'll say that's for Grandma)... the idea isn't perfect because I had more aqua fabric than pink, but the idea is that though they may have started separately, you can no longer tell where one life begins and the other ends... also...
- in 50 years, one collects so many little pieces of life all sewn together.
And another Dresden for Kelly -- it's beautiful in Bliss
The tree was made a la "Girl on a Swing", with my hand as the trunk. Summer was the season I was depicting.
And finally -- a little house and little tree for Sue in our Bee Splendid group.
I'm waiting on fabric for one more set, and then have a few more to sew, but then I'm done for the year!
