I would like to try to keep on target for my goals for 2014 finishes. To do that I am leveraging two link-ups
A lovely year of finishes which is a monthly link-up which allows you to put a goal for that month. It could be finish blocks or finish a quilt top or a complete project. Link-up post is here.
Finish Along 2014 which is a quarterly link-up in which you have a list of projects you would like to completely finish. For example, a quilt that has been bound and quilted (not just a top), the same goes with any other project.
My main goals are to finish two quilts (one being a lap quilt and the second a twin) this quarter:
Almost the end of the year!! Why is it always so chaotic??
I had planned my week of posts and unfortunately have not been able to stay to plan. Mostly, this is due to the fact, I am getting home after dark (~6pm), and I just can’t take great photos. Winter and its short days are not my friend :-(.
So excuse the photo quality, but I really wanted to post about my current WiPs I have going this week.
Zakka Circle Pot holders – these are for a friend for Christmas. Tops are sewn, just need to quilt + shape + bind the pot holders.
Made some progress on the X & + quilt, with another two blocks done only 3 1/2 rows to go to make my December goal.
Christmas Stocking – pulled out pattern and fabrics, I have an idea about the design. I am thinking a 23/24 Dec finish.
Alyce over @ Wonderland by Alyce was the Scrap-bee-licious Queen bee this month. She requested 12 inch X & + blocks with a specific color palette. This was my first time making X & + blocks….I know shocking!!
Here are my two finished blocks:
I loved making them, and I have decided to make a whole quilt using greens, blues, reds, oranges and yellows. I can’t get enough of them :-).
Here is a shout out to the others in the Scrap-bee-licious….
