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!
Sometimes I need a deadline to keep me motivated to complete a quilt. What better motivation than participating in a bloghop?
While the snow and cold temperatures keep you inside, why not work on projects for this year's fair? The full listing is available to download now!
This month's block used paper piecing technique, one that all three of us were familiar with and happy to assemble!
My favourite customer, Ashley asked me to make a quilt from her daughter's baby clothes. I have previously made her quilts for her sisiter-in-law, her boys and she won a school quilt!
August's quilting technique was English Paper Piecing (EPP), a method I was skeptical to try at first.
