I'm Getting There

Quilt top is finished - whew!

Now I just need to finish up the quilt I have on my frame and get this one quilted.

I had set a goal to have it done by the end of January for The Lovely Year of Finishes.  But, now I'm thinking that I'd like to work on it 'after' I take classes by Judi Madsen and Lisa Sipes in Phoenix the first week of February.

Camber is wondering what the heck I'm doing!

I don't know, though. I hate to not make a goal.  And I did say I'd get it pieced, quilted and bound by January 31. What the heck was I thinking?

It feels good to make progress like this.  If I can truly finish up a project of my own, once a month, during 2014, I will be feeling quite accomplished!

And wait until you see my scrappy block quilt called Freedom Quilt.  It's all together and is waiting in line to be quilted.

Remember to quilt with a smile,

  9. Wow, that is gorgeous! I would love to comment on quilting it, but with the stacks of UFO's in my room, I have no room to talk about when anyone gets theirs done! LOL!!
    Can't wait to see it all quilted up though!

  10. This is pattern that has been popping up all over and it never fails to please! Beautiful job on this one!!

Remembering All The Little Things

I have let my blog side away in lieu of posting photos and updates over on Instagram. For me, it takes less time, and is a faster way to doc...
