Here is the finished stuff from week 2 and 3 of my May Challenge. In the first picture you see the coasters I finished. I had made one and prepared the three others, but it has taken me three and a half year to do that. The black and white stuff are scissors cases. Originally it started out as pot holders, but the batting was too thin. The pink stuff is a jewel bag that was a tri-recs project. Didn't finish that as I planned either, so I chose to make jewel bags of the few blocks I did. The colourful stuff is a makeup purse and the red and white mini-trip-around-the-world was my summer project from last summer. It is totally handsewn
The second picture is my first handpiecing project, started right before Christmas 2002. I have made several projects with this design, but this one has taken long to complete. The small quilt on the right is what I call the Quilting Etude #1. It was merely designed to practice handquilting and I like how it came out. It's still bleeding red, due to my laziness (didn't prewash fabric) so I have to run it in the washing machine on a wool cycle with no spinning
On the last picture you see the second table mat(matching my husband's). To the right is a small wallhanging that I've called Dictator's Chessboard. I've used some of my bali stash together with black solid border. The title of the quilt? You see, if I was a dictator, I could decide how my chessboard would look like. By the way, the only pieces allowed on this board are pawns :-D. They are quilted in the border.
All pictures are taken by my husband.
