I'm joining forces with:
to make 2014 a productive, fun quilting year!
I'm a goal setting, list making kind of girl. These two link-ups are perfect for me!
Here's a peek at a few projects I have selected to get 2014 rolling:
I want to quilt this story quilt I made two years ago.
I've always wanted a heart quilt. See it finished here: Crazy Hearts
I've been making these little hearts over the past few years.
The pile is growing. I think it's time to put them together. I'm totally looking forward to this February project. I will also be including a tutorial on how to make these cute little hearts. Warning: You'll get addicted...they are so fun! Click here for the tutorial.
May (My birthday month)
(Made this CHEVRON QUILT instead for my May goal.)
So I still have this fabric I've been collecting to remake
this Hexagon Quilt I made last summer and gifted away. These are my colors and I really liked how this one came out. I would enjoy one for myself. HappyBirthday to me!
June and July
I found these fun layer cakes in my "stash".
Summersville (STILL HAVE)
and Lucy's Crab Shack. (DONE!)
See it finished here: Beach Houses
Truth be told, I have absolutely no idea what pattern to use with them. I just loved the fabric and thought they'd make into some fun summer quilts. Any ideas?? I know some of you are pattern makers, do ya have a pattern to recommend? I'm open to suggestions. Please comment if you have any. (Thanks!)
And finally....ugh! (DONE!)
The kit in the box, that has not made the list...yet! This kit contains a wonderful assortment of pretty pinks, reds, and browns to make this pattern of scrappy baskets:
See it finished here: Mom's Chevron Quilt
My intention was to make this quilt for my mom. She loved the quilt and it would be perfect hanging in her livingroom. Confession number two: it's still in the box becausee I just don't think I have it in me to make all those triangles. (Actually, while writing this post,bearing my closet full of fabric confessions to you, I'm realizing I don't have it in me to make all those triangles! LOL!!). WoW! That confession felt good! Whew! Okay...so now what? My mom is open to anything. I purchased this kit couple of years ago when I was taking classes and learning to quilt. I was doing a lot of piecing then. I've come to learned THIS is more my style. So what would you recommend? I still want to make a wallhanging of sorts for my mom, just not something with so many little pieces. Please comment if ya have any ideas and/or links to share. (Thanks...again!)
I'm looking forward to turning this pile of "projects" into a pile of finishes by years end!
