What I made

Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

The last thing I made is a basic knit hat. Wool yarn. # 6 circular needle.

The last two things I finished (already begun) were a baby quilt and a dog coat. The quilt is a rail fence quilt with three primary fabrics and two border fabrics. Fabrics are cotton as is the batting and backing. The picture shows the quilt folded and draped over the boards for my dining room table.

The dog coat is made from the arm of an old sweater. I loved the sweater but it was mouse-eaten, so I felted it and took it apart to make dog coats, a hat, and a headband. The top of the coat is wool, the bottom and collar are fleece. There is webbing, a “D” ring, and buttons. The dog is a dachshund.

I want to make a queen size quilt for my bed. I have the material. I need to make the time.
