So I have been off work recovering from sinus surgery, which went really well, the only issue is boredom. I decided to start 3 sewing projects while in isolation ;-):
- Quilt for my Niece for Christmas – Four Seasons Quilt
- Quilt for our bed – Grey and Orange Quilt
- Chair pockets/Chair Bags
This is my first time quilting and I am enjoying it, and I have been pleasantly surprised by my sewing skills. Here’s what the beginnings look like.
Project 1: Four Seasons Quilt
I wanted the quilt for my niece to be fun and have multiple textures. I came up with a 4 panel design that shows an apple tree in Spring, Summer, Autumn/Fall, and Winter. My goal is a 54 x 90 in. quilt. I drew templates for the major material pieces and cut everything out yesterday.

Project 3: Chair Bags/Chair Pockets
