I have decided that this is my year for quilts!
I have planned the whole year with deadlines for myself, as well as room for a few fun things in between. I find that I work better under a time constraint knowing that it needs to be done by a certain day just makes me focus on it that much more.
Maybe for me this will mean less UFO's and more completed projects.
Remember this quilt from last January?
I did get it finished before the end of the year, just in time to gift it to my sister when she came up. (she will kill me if she knew I put this here, but it's the only photo's I got) Boo!
She loved it! However I learned a big lesson using cross-weaves in a quilt. One of the pieces unraveled in the wash and had to be re-sewn by hand after the quilt was gifted. If I do use them again (not likely) I will add an extra seam allowance to them to hopefully ensure it doesn't unravel.
Quilt Measures approx 65x50
Main background - Kona in Ash gray
Fabric line for prints - Washi by Rashida Coleman Hale
Moda Crossweaves in Aqua
Free spirit solid in Azalea
Moda Bella solid in Ochre
I used up scraps to complete the binding, and Kona on the back in Charcoal gray and Pomegranate color block.
When my sister came over, we also had a shortage of blankets in the house. Her remark was, "don't you make quilts?" Ummmmm... Ha! All I could do was laugh. Yes! I make quilts and this year I plan to make many more.
What about you? What's your goals for the new year.
P.S. I have new hair for the new year! :)
I will blog about how I did it soon.
