There are a few rules for these goals:
So I looked at my pile of project boxes on the floor and thought "Which ones am I going to work on in the next four months?" Or more accurately "Which ones did I want to finish as Christmas gifts?"
In no particular order, here are my goals!
I finished this table runner in November. Wrapped and mailed in lots of time for Christmas delivery, Yay!
I finished these bags in October - and wrote a tutorial on how I did them too!! All four bags are done - and Bonus - two other slab style market bags were also finished.
My son really wanted me to make him a quilt - and this fire themed quilt has been languishing as a flimsy for over a year and a half. It was time to get it finished!! I custom free motion quilted fire hydrants randomly over the quilt with a loose wavy line I hoped would look like a fire hose, but it looks like ripply water instead.
No progress. This one slipped through my fingers as I was starting and finishing gifts for Christmas.
Finished! This pillowcase project had been sitting on the table for a few months waiting for me to finally assemble it. As soon as it was sewn together, it was packaged up and mailed for a special Christmas gift - Yay!
This project was a long shot at making progress, and I don't think I've even moved the plastic box it's in! I have a few more blocks in the red/white scheme that I found, so maybe I'll have an inspirational setting plan as I work on those.
So I think I did a pretty good job on these goals. Actually the list looks kinda big when it's all written down, doesn't it :) Let's hope I can do as well over the next few months! Thanks for reading along and keeping me on track!
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
