Linen Leaf Yoke Top

I knit a top once before using this pattern, but this one I did correctly.  By that I mean the yoke pattern is properly centered.  The pattern is #14 Leaf Yoke Top by Angela Hahn.  The yarn is Rowan Creative Linen

 
Here is a photo to more clearly show the yoke pattern.
 
The sweater has a turned hem.

Elis Cowl

This is a quick project that I knit using yarn in my stash.  The pattern is Elis by Reiko Kuwamura.  The yarn is  Berroco Ultra Alpaca.  The yarn color is Dijon.  I mailed the cowl to my college roommate who lives in New Hampshire.  I thought she might need a bit of sunshine considering the record breaking snow they've had this winter.

Another Scrappy Baby Crazy Quilt

This quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  I gave it to friends who just had their first baby.  I mostly know these two from online but have had the privilege of dining with them once when they pasted through Little Rock.  The quilt measures 37 in X 47 in.

 

As you can see from these next several photos there is much of interest to find.  This one has girls dancing, a motorcycle, a robot, owls, and more.

 

This one has elephants, a duck in a Santa hat, a poodle, and sewing items.

 

This one has words (boo, US 66, motel court, eek), a cat, and lots of colors.

 

This one has another robot, a tractor, a motorcycle, and more words.


 
The back is pieced also using an alphabet panel, pink fabric, and blue fabric.

Intersections

I made this small quilt, 15.25 in square, as my entry in the ALQS9.  It was inspired by the art cover of JAMA back in July 2010.  The art piece is "Night Intersection" by Charmion von Wiegand.  This first photo has the front JAMA page I had saved along with the pieced quilt top.

 

The small quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  Here is the finished quilt.

 

Here is the back of the quilt.  I will add a sleeve for hanging and a label.
