I found a round tuit pattern at Paper Panache so I just had to make one. I turned the little trinket (48 pieces total) into an ornament for the Christmas tree because I honestly did not think I'd ever get "a round to it" when it comes to making ornaments! 😜 I may make some larger ones with different colors as mug rug/coaster gifts.
I made this little wall hanging for a friend. The goal was to make it look a bit like a framed portrait.
The pattern was created by Kaitlin Sekeres. It is freely available at Fandom in Stitches

I created this mini quilt wall hanging for my daughter's birthday. She is a teacher that loves her cat and has been extra dependent on her coffee to get through the issues caused by the 2020 pandemic. I hope it brings her a smile.
The foundation paper piecing pattern was purchased from Quilt Art Designs
Here are a few more pictures of the process:

My First Paper Piecing Pattern
I made this paper pieced pattern to represent Al Bundy's football jersey from Married with Children. The yellow background was the closest I could get to matching the Bundy's couch. I used it to make an envelope pillow as a gift for a fan of the show.

A Christmas Story Leg Lamp
I made a couple of leg lamps as Christmas gifts. This paper pieced pattern was fairly simple but adding the fishnet stockings and frill was a bit more challenging. One hangs with tabs and the other has a hanging rod sewn into the back.

This is my first attempt at working with bold curves to make a winding path quilt for my daughter. I struggled to get it "good enough" and learned a tremendous amount along the way. I almost chose to scrap it because it was not perfect but then I was reminded that done is better than perfect so I finished it. I am so glad I did!
Pattern was found in the book Circle Pizzazz by Judy Sisneros
