Pansy Quilt start

Originally uploaded by Tanya&Troy.
Yesterday I started this Pansy Quilt. Troy's great aunt Bertie made 20 of these pansy squares and has since aged a little past her quilting prime so I've taken on the challenge of making a quilt with them. This is the first start at it. The squares are 11.5" and I'm placing them 4x5. The sashing is cut 3.5" so will be 3" when completed.

Storage Rack

I found this great storage rack in my back shed. I cleaned if off and it's perfect for storing material and yarn in. The best thing about it is that when I walk into my craft room the first thing I see is all my material and yarn out on display. Nothing more inspiring than that!

Snowman Wall Hanging

I decided to start Christmas projects early this year and made this wall hanging with my new found quilting skills. I learned a ton during this project... from machine quilting, applique to binding... all in this small little fun project. It only took a couple of nights of work. I think it will make a good Christmas gift for someone.

This is my first quilt I've made so far. I started it back in April and got about this far within 6 weeks... taking a class helps to get things done. Since the class I've been hand quilting it and I haven't been going very fast. Really should have a floor rack to do this proper but so far I'm just using a round wooden ring. Not ideal... I'll finish it some day.
