I was so excited to see all of the the One Little Word quilts at the BMQG meeting this afternoon! Everyone did a great job and I love seeing how all of the mini quilts were so different from one another! No one had the same word, either. I didn't bring my camera, but hopefully Heather and/or Dawn will post some pictures soon.
I am in love with how it came out. I love the wonky stars, I love the paper-piece letters, and I especially love the new (to me) FMQing. LOVE. I am hoping to partake in a bit of Leah Day's FMQ Project this year.
We also started a Round Robin Quilt this month. Here is my center block, which has been passed on to the first participant to add a 2-inch border. I won't see this fella again until June, and I'm so excited to see what he turns into!
I was also able to finish up my socks over New Years...they're a bit tight now that they've been washed, but I love them nonetheless. Not bad for a first effort, eh?
I signed up to take a toe-up sock class at The Knitter's Nest and we had our first class yesterday. I chose to work with this yarn for this project:
Can you say, LOVE????? I am so excited about these socks I can hardly contain myself! They are made with Judy's Magic cast on and the Magic Loop technique...MAGIC MAGIC socks! I have the toe done for one and am working my way up the foot right now. I already like this technique better than top-down. I will share pictures of my progress soon.
