2017 Trunk Show

In November of 2016, I stumbled upon Soma of Whims and Fancies, who had the brilliant idea of hosting an online trunk show so bloggers can virtually display their quilts and other sewn items. I put together a trunk show of my 2016 finishes, and now I'm going to get a start on my 2017 trunk show by posting photos and links to posts here.

My first finish of the year was made for a little guy born the day (shy of eight years) before my son. Zeke was adopted by D's dance teacher at school and her husband. She has instilled a love for dance in my son I didn't think possible is such a science and math obsessed kid, so I had to make her a quilt! I had the idea of making a quilt that could be used for monthly photos, but the numbers were a perfect fit for someone who counts to eight all day! 

Quilt #74: Russian Spinning Squares

My second finish of the year is a charity quilt I was able to put together quickly for our church quilt ministry. I was able to use the Russian nesting doll fabric I bought before we went to Russian family camp. This quilt will be making it's way to an orphanage in Russian where I pray it will bring comfort and cheer to whoever claims it.

Quilt #75: Weaver First Year Milestone Quilt

So many people I know are having babies! I wish I could make quilts for all the little squishies! Alas, too many babies, too little time. When I found out that another teacher at D's school was having baby, I had the perfect opportunity to make a second milestone quilt. I tweaked it a little bit from the first one I made and I like this design even better.

Quilt #76: A Team en Provence

On the last day of February, I finished my first Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. I started in November and kept up with the weekly clues until we went out West at Christmas time. I finished a little too late to make the finale link up, but I finished just in time to know that I needed to send this bit of cheer to a fellow December 08 mama, Angie, who, along with her girls A & A (thus, the A team) needs a little bright and cheery these days.
