HQAL - December 30, 2018

Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for any handwork to be shared and to motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. Click on the HQAL and it will take you to see what everyone else has accomplished. There are some really talented people in this group!

This is the final post for 2018.

It's been a good year as far as crafting is concerned. In fact, when I did a post earlier this year of my year in projects I was surprised how much I'd accomplished because there were so many days when I didn't feel like I'd anything.

So for my last few weeks, there really wasn't much hand work because of working and Christmas preparations. But here is what I'd been working on.

These silly boys are just two of my great nephews. I made pajamas bottoms for Christmas again this year. The "hand" part was running elastic in the waist bands for 14 pairs. 

I did manage to squeeze in one more project before the year rings out.


I found this charm pack of baby prints on eBay. The border and backing are from my stash. I machine quilted on my Janome and hand stitched the binding on the back.

Thanks for stopping by.

Verse of the day:

If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, 
God lives in them and they in God.

1 John 4:15 NIVUK

I do like that quilt more every time I look it. Do those boys know they're on your blog with their silly faces? LOL I love it!

LOL those boys are so cute!!! My friend Shirley makes pajama pants for all the boys in her family - mostly great-grandchildren now! LOVE that quilt!
