Messaline Sweater

It took me a long time to knit this sweater, almost a year.  Mostly because I keep putting it aside to work on other projects.  I do like the finished result.  The pattern is Messaline by Bristol Ivy.  The yarn is Cloudborn Fibers Highland Fingering.

Pear Still Life Quilt

This small quilt is the result of an online quilt class I recently enrolled in (Translate Photos Into Fabric Art by Leni Levenson Wiener at iquilt.com).  It is machine appliqued and quilted.  The small quilt measures 9 in X 12.5 in.  I have mailed it to a friend who admired it.

Latest Child’s Crazy Quilt

Recently finished this child’s crazy quilt.  It is machine pieced using scrap fabrics.  It is machine quilted.  The quilt measures approx 40 in X 44 in.  No one particular in mind but thinking I may give it to a colleague for her grand-daughter who is just over a year old.  This first photo shows the entire quilt.

These next three show details.  There is much for a child to find.  Colors (red, green, etc), shapes (strips, dots), things (sail boat, girl, Minnie mouse).

In this one — peacock feather, sailboat, horse, dogs.

 In this one — owls, horses, angle, razorback.

Nurmilintu Scarf

I love how this scarf turned out.  Just finished it earlier this week.  It was knit using yarn Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock.  The pattern is Nurmilintu by Heidi Alander.  After blocking the scarf measures approx 77 in along the longest edge and 18 in at the widest point.  The two other sides measure 37 in and 49 in.

Theirs

I made this quilt after reading about the use of they as a singular pronoun by many trans individuals rather than he or she. My thinking for this piece was a monogrammed towel as a simple gesture of welcome and acceptance.  I chose the floral background fabric to try to elicit wallpaper.  The dark gray/black strip at the bottom was meant to be the counter top which I chose to leave empty (thought of adding soap, hair brush, etc but decided not to do so). The quilt is 20.5 in X 22 in.  It is machine appliqued and quilted.

I quilted pronouns (he, she, they, his, hers, theirs) among the background flowers.
