New quilts

Did you watch the whole game? If not, you missed a good one. Now I know I said I was rooting for the Steelers, but, after watching all the pregame hype, I wouldn't have been sad if the Cardinals won. I wanted it for Kurt Warner but Larry Fitzgerald will get another chance. And, how about that former Buckeye Santonio Holmes! What a catch!!!!!

Ok, enough of that. I told you when I started this blog that I liked football and I'd have to sneak it in.

Here's what I did this weekend. This first little quilt on the left, and when I say little it's 11" x 12 1/2" and used 80 - 1 1/4" half square triangles, is for Jo Morton's Little Women's club. They are going to love this one. We are starting the new group of quilts in March and if you want to learn some very accurate methods for piecing small quilts, this club is for you. These techniques can be used in larger quilts too, but they make for very accurate little quilts. I am just loving this so much.

The little quilt on the top is about 9x12. The pattern is from Fit to Frame: Set Twelve using the new fabric Olde Glory IV by Windham. I used the paper piecing method. I am in the process of quilting it and then I'll probably frame it.

The last little quilt on the right is about 17x20. It's also from Fit to Frame: Set Twelve and uses the Olde Glory fabric line.
Did you know that if you click on the pictures, you can get a closer look? Just don't look too close as you'll see the dirty floor beneath. No matter how many times we clean, that pesky snow just keeps sneaking in here.
