This year, I didn’t think I made any New Year’s resolutions, but I inadvertently did.
But it’s not exactly a good resolution – I am planning for “no quilts in 2014.”
Although I love quilts and, overall, do enjoy making them, Christmas put me over the top.
I made three quilts for Christmas presents. I crammed the making of the quilts into about three weeks. It was too much.
Anyway, the quilts I made were for two baby boys and one toddler girl.
The girl one has a black and white chevron-type design, a grey backing, and a nice bright pink trim.
Both of the boy quilts use the same colors – grey, red, blue, and yellow. One has a black backing, and the other has a grey backing.
This one I call the “Lego” one. The colors don’t touch, and it’s trimmed with grey.
This one is the “Tetris” one, with some of the colors touching, and a colorful blue trim.
The quilts should be quite nice for the little kids to sleep with, and once it becomes a little too small for them, it will be a beautiful couch blanket.
Only time will tell if I stick to my resolution or if I break it…
