I’m embracing 2022 with optimism and rose colored glasses.
I made this block size quilt in May 2020 inspired by a block from the National Quilt Museum’s second Block of the Month series for January. We still have so far to go. Perhaps my hope will have started to be smudged up a bit more in 2022.
My hope is to take the remnants of joys and struggles throughout this pandemic, and turn them into something lovely.
The South Florida MQG hosted two curves workshops in 2021, one with Cassandra Beaver using a ruler and another with Cindy Grisdela using freehand cutting. We also have a curves challenge. My freehand block uses ombre fabrics.
I’m not really a so-called quilter. I sew… this is my gist appliqué. It’s ragged edge and bejeweled .
My hope for Christmas is that families will be getting together the way they used to with love and joy. This block is made from scraps of Christmas dresses I made for my daughters 30 years ago when they were just small children.
“Spring Fever” designer Jacqueline DeJonge. I started this quilt in 2018 for my grand daughter. I had to stop for 4 different neck surgeries over the next two years. I’m healed and completed it last week. Just in time for Christmas!!
My hope is for a healthy 2022 for all. I think of the 4-H pledge including healthy living for club, community, country, and world. With healthier conditions, we’ll be able to do our best for all.
Hopes for MMXXII

Based on the most recent full moon boating trip on the Helena Holding Reservoir with my wonderful husband. Last year I spent 52 days in my kayak, the Pooh Trois. More next year!
I am new to quilting. I want to share my love of sewing and love for family and friends by making them bright and cheerful quilts. I hope my quilts will lift their spirits.
