making a start on finishing
I'm off to visit the quilter on Monday to pick up this (not so) little baby and drop a couple more quilts into her capable hands.
The rainbow quilt was intended for my mother in law, but I'm having second thoughts now - I think I might get too attached to it when I see it quilted. Truthfully, I'm a bit like that with every quilt I make. I struggle to let them go and even regret it a little bit each and every time. Then I vow I'll make a replacement to take it's place (and never do).
This year (yes, I am going a bit crazy with the good intentions and resolutions) I've made a list of things I want to do (or finish) and stick to it. So here goes;
You know already about my stash pact and the vow to not buy any new fabric (with a few caveats -backings, bindings, sashings if I have nothing at all suitable in my stash)
I will finish the Hexy MF
I will make a Denyse Schmidt single girl quilt (I've been saying that for a while - this time I'm sticking to it, I've already got enough fabric for the background)
I will make a bee quilt or 2 - I've got a heap of bee blocks laying round that haven't been sewn together. Time the poor things got sashed and made into a few tops
What are you planning on doing this year? Any quilty/crafty goals that you really need to scratch the itch of?
