First Friday Finishes for 2018

Since it's been so freezing cold here and it's not conducive to being outside much, I've gotten a good start on my goals list.  Staying in the sewing room more does wonders for finishing up things.

My first QOV top is done -- totally from scraps.  One down and 9 more to go.

#1 QOV top for 2018
The pillowcase in which to present the quilt after it has been hand quilted by our QOV Eastern MO group.

And there has been a little more done on my scrappy sock using leftover yarns from previous finished pairs.  They are not the most beautiful, but very functional and warm; anyway, no one will see these much.  They will be hidden  in my boots on those cold snowy days.

Now if I can drag myself to the cold, cold basement, maybe I can get busy quilting on one of the UFOs.  Wish me luck.


  1. Love the coordinating pillow case! And those socks are so fun!

  2. I find the socks lovely....... A great use of unused yarn with warm feet in the bargain.....

  3. Your QOV is great! I so admire those of you makers that can do socks. I am envious!

  4. Oh! That's lovely, Dar!! Any veteran would be lucky to receive your quilt.

  5. Oh, the sapphire stars is so pretty. Will you be keeping that one?

  6. Hope you’re warming up this week! Looks like you’ve had a great start to the year.

  7. That's a great QOV quilt. HSTs make great patterns. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF.

  8. what a GREAT start to your year! What size did you make the HST's?

    1. The finished size of the HSTs are 6 inches. It was a quick and easy top to put together.

      PS- you came up as a noreply blogger when I tried to reply to your comment by return email. You might want to check this.

  9. That's a great use of scraps, Dar. It turned out really nice.
