I finished my quilt for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap 5 and I am excited to share it with you. It is always a fun thing to do a swap but for me it is even more fun when my sister is participating in the same swap. We usually talk on the phone prior to making the quilts and have a great brainstorming session. It is really fun to share that with her.
My partner picked Spring and yellow or red and I was really excited after talking with Tina about the direction I chose for this quilt. The whole monochromatic thing was quite a challenge but I was up for it.
Who else can say that they planned world domination while hand binding their quilt? Luckily my family was understanding that I had to make a deadline.
I made cheery yellow umbrellas with hand embroidered handles...
I just couldn't help but throw in a red one...
They say that April showers bring May flowers so I picked out a sweet floral for the back of the quilt.
I sure hope my partner likes it! I had a lot of fun making it and like every swap, I wish I would have made a second one to keep.
Here is the little gift I made for my nephew. I thought another sweater was going to be my second but this one snuck in. I guess it could be sweater 1.5.
Pattern: Baby Yoda Sweater
Yarn: Bernat Cotton Tots
Needles: size 6
Size: 0-6 months
This was fun to knit and pretty quick. My first sweater was a top down raglan with no seaming so this little sweater was good practice for me in knitting in pieces and then seaming them together. I learned a lot! I can't wait to see it on my little nephew when he has grown a bit.
