I finished 2 quilts in March! I can only show one of them at this time. Stay tuned for the other one at a later date. This is my Skittles quilt. I quilted it at a retreat put on by my local guild. Used a walking foot and one of my standard designs. I am happy with the way the quilting turned out.

I used a flannel print for the borders, binding and backing. It should be a very cozy lap quilt! Eddy approves!

Yarn Barf
I knit the qualifying round of Sock Madness. I was having yarn barf issues. I think that there was more yarn that barfed than was left in the skein.
New technique
I learned a new stitch technique. It involved several rows with 2 colors and slip stitches.
I was just a few hours short of making it to the next round. But since I was close to finishing the qualifying round pattern, I am a cheerleader and will get to knit the other patterns for fun. My project page Here.







  1. Oh, your quilt sounds so cozy with all the flannel you used! And it's so pretty with all those colorful hexies. Ha! I've never heard the term 'yarn barf' but I'm glad to finally have a name for what happens to my yarn too! LOL
