My final 2010 finish (literally, at 9:30pm on New Years eve) was Alex's cuddle quilt:
This was a simple quilt that I should have finished long ago. The section of squares was purchased as a single unit in 2008, and I intended to do it as soon as I found out my daughter was having a boy -never happened as I wasn't feeling the sewing mojo then. Move ahead a year and half, and I decided to make it large enough to cover a twin bed, bought some flannel for the top and bottom which didn't quite match, started tie-quilting it - still not feeling it, put it aside for another year. Flash forward to Spring 2010 - I have a spare room for the first time in years, I painted it, bought some new tables, etc. and I now have a craft room. When I was pulling out boxes and bins, I came across this and made up my mind I was going to finish it in 2010 come hell or high water and I did! Done is better than perfect!
I decided to make pyjamas for Alex; I used an old pattern that my mom used for my brother. Alex modeled the pants for me (somewhat relucantly):
They must have made kids differently back then - the pants would have fit a 4-year-old, but the tops barely fit a 1-year-old. Alex used them to dress a teddy bear.
Shoulda caught that when I was cutting them out ;o) So I went back for more fabric. Of course I couldn't find it so settled on some solids and made bottoms to match the tops for gifts for my new grand-nephews!
