Here we are at the end of 2013! I need to show a couple items that I gave for Christmas gifts. This table runner was made for my DIL. She wanted a whig rose in the middle and then something reproduced from Frank Lloyd Wright's windows on each side (she majored in architecture). I did my best, but couldn't really reproduce the window exactly due to size limitations.
Close up of the center. I did do a little more quilting on it after taking this picture.
Some of you have seen this quilt from my "Secret" blog. I made 2 of these quilts and gave them the name of "The Eagle." Here is a picture of me with DS#3 (we spent Christmas with him and his family).
A picture of the whole quilt is below. The quilt is a partial reproduction of the "Lindy" quilt which was made in 1930 to commemorate Charles Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927. Two of my sons are pilots, so when I first saw this quilt several years ago, I wanted to make it for them. The alternating blocks have an eagle embroidered on them. The quilt appears in "Word Play Quilts" by Tonya Ricucci. I would never been able to piece the words without that book.
BTW, I won the blue ribbon at my September guild meeting for the President's challenge of making a two color quilt.
We spent a week with DS#3 and family. Here are a few more pictures of the boys. Jonah got this scooter for Christmas.
Eli's chore is to set the table for supper.
Two sweet boys with their bikes. Eli received his bike for Christmas.
Here is something that I received for Christmas! I have been thinking about this quilt for several years and I plan to get started on it. I hope to join a group for encouragement. Of course I still have several UFOs that I need to finish. I need to review my list from January to see how I did and will report in another post.
Happy New Year, everyone! I will be looking forward to seeing what you plan to work on next year.
