PHD in 2021 Wrap Up

Hi Quilting Friends,

Welcome 2022, and so long to 2021! It was another “interesting” year, wasn’t it?

Today I’m taking time to look back on all of the quilt projects that I’ve finished this year. Here we go!

Project #1: Make the “Southwest Critters” Quilt

No progress for this project, although I did sort through and set aside yardage for backing from my stash. It will join my 2022 PHD list.

Project #7: Make a throw with my “Diamond Star” blocks

Not finished. I’ve finished stitching blocks, so I’m ready to continue with the next steps for 2022.

Project #8: “Thangles” HST foundation papers
Rulers and foundations

No progress. Perhaps I’ll get to it in 2022!

Projects #9 through #12: Colorful fabric baskets from scraps
  • Green Scrappy Basket B by Sharon @ Ms P Designs USA
  • Scrappy Baskets by Sharon @ Ms P Designs USA

I’ve created GREEN, AQUA, BLUE, and VIOLET scrappy baskets this year, which completes my rainbow of scrappy happiness! It was fun, digging through my scrap bins and finding forgotten “treasures”.

Project #13: Mariner’s Star table runner and place mats
Mariner's Star Quilt Blocks by Sharon @ Ms P Designs USA

All done! The pattern for the “Mariner’s Star Place Mats and Table Runner” is available in Ms P’s Pattern Shop.

Projects #14 and #15: Christmas stockings for the Grand-doggers

We are blessed with two beautiful Grand-Doggers, Naomi and Ruth. Here are the Christmas stockings that I stitched up for them, since they are both very good girls. The Christmas applique patterns are both available in Ms P’s Christmas Shop.

Project #16: Finish the teal, purple, and gray quilt
UFO by Sharon @ Ms P Designs USA

All done, but not perfect, after a lot of wrestling. Done is good, and it took slightly less than 30 years from start to finish, LOL.

Nope. Perhaps I’ll get busy with this project in 2022.
