Catching Up and Fabric Report


It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I finally have a little movement in the stash numbers to report.  This week I got around to quilting another baby quilt.

This is the last of 4 of the baby quilts that I made from my Leader/Ender last year.  I pulled squares from the 2.5" drawer for the pastel 9-patch blocks.

My free motion is not as good as I'd like it to be, but hopefully a baby won't mind that they are all not perfectly proportioned.  Just the binding to go and it will be done.

On the knitting front, I finished the Drops Fabel socks.  These were started at the end of January! Why it took so long, I can't say other than I've been busy with other things, I guess.

Now, I get to play with all those luscious scrappy leftover sock yarns from Carol at The Polka Dot Chicken.


I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times


  1. I like the quilting on the baby quilt. Nice socks!

  2. I love nine patch quilts and I'm sure a baby would love yours. Great socks, the vibrant color will be fun to wear. Sock knitting is rather addictive....

  3. I love your quilt, and the quilting is lovely.

  4. Your quilting and your socks look great! I look forward to seeing what you make with all the yarns!

  5. It is always nice to get something in the used column. Leader/Ender projects always seem like a free quilt.

  6. Good use of scraps in the quilt. Love the socks!

    1. Thanks. I do love a good scrap quilt and soon will be trying some scrappy socks, thanks to a generous blog reader. Can't wait to see them take shape.
      P.S. You came up as a no reply comment blogger, just in case you didn't know.

  7. Beautiful baby quilt! The quilting looks great. Congrats on both finishes. What plan do you have the scrap yarn?

  8. I love the baby quilt, and I reallt like how you quilted it. It added so much texture to it. Just keep practicing, and you'll be perfectly proportional in no time. (At least that's what I've heard...😀)

  9. Cute baby quilt, and I WISH my machine quilting looked as good as yours does!!

  10. LOL...we all either need to find a way to quilt and knit in our sleep or add more hours to the day in order to get all of our projects done.
    That is a darling baby quilt - I've never seen a 9-patch quilt I didn't like and I'm betting the baby will love it!

  11. Are all of those curves from the quilting?! I can't get over how gorgeous that looks. And I'm pretty sure you've made up my mind which skeins of Fabel I'm casting on with next. :-)

  12. Love the colors and the quilting looks great!! No baby will cry over a few funny curves
