Last quarter I finished two of the nine items on my list of goals. Not exactly inspiring numbers but I finished several other projects that weren’t on my official list and I certainly did a lot of sewing. The two items from my list that I finished were my 2015 Pantone Challenge Marsala Quilt (I won second place in the quilt category so I’m thrilled about that) and the birthday club item for my friend Rachael. So while I’m not exactly racing through my goals, I am finding that these lists keep me focussed. Especially when one project comes to a halt and it would be so easy to start on something new, this list reminds me that I don’t need to do that!
Here’re the projects I plan to work on this quarter..
1. Wagon Wheel Quilt
2. Pack Patch Mini
The more hand quilting I do on this quilt the more I decide it needs, it’s turning into the never ending project! I’m really enjoying practicing my hand quilting though.
3. Birthday Club Swap
Deb’s birthday falls in this quarter so I’ll be making something for her. Maybe something from ‘handmade Style‘ by Anna Graham (I’m pretty sure Deb won’t be reading this).
4. Ocean Waves Quilt
I’ve almost finished making blocks for this quilt, I’m waiting on my bee blocks to arrive then I can start sewing them all together. This is quilt three in my Quilt the Book project.
5. Floral Applique Quilt
This quilt is on the list because I’ll be working on it this quarter but I’m expecting it to be a slow burner, it’s unlikely that it will be finished in the next three months. This is quilt four in my Quilt the Book project.
6. Private swap with Aylin
I made a start on a tote bag for Aylin last quarter and would dearly love to finish it this quarter.
7. Sew Together Bag for mum
I’ve been working on the theory that mum won’t mind waiting but it’s getting ridiculous, I need to get this made!
8. Pillows for my sister
See 7 (replace ‘mum’ with ‘my sister’)!
9. Swedish Bloom quilt
This quilt has been on every list this year, I’d like to make some progress on it, but it’s fallen into the non-urgent pile so don’t be surprised if it’s back on List Four!
10. Quilt the Book
Quilt the Book has stolen my quilting mojo! I’m having such a great time plotting to make all the quilts from ‘Denyse Schmidt Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration‘ that I could happily work on nothing else. There will definitely be progress on this project. I haven’t decided which quilt I’ll start next, maybe the Snake Trail quilt…
