I love a good goal. That's why I signed up over with Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap to finish up a couple UFO's in the new year. There are even a bunch of awesome prizes to be won (another goal of 2012, win more!)
So here's my stack of fabric that I've been talking about since August, July...who knows. But this quilt has been in the works for at least 6 months. It's for a dear friend of mine on commission and I have to get it done this month. It's his birthday month.
Small bits of progress have been made this week. 5" squares to start.
A pattern to go on...which I've already changed! Here's the new one which I like much better, more movement more modern!
And blocks to fill in the blank spots. Since it's for a guy (who requested no flowers on the fabrics!) I thought the bold, geometric shapes of the summer sampler series would fit. As a bonus I get to make the summer sampler blocks which I'd been drooling over most of 2011.
The other project that needs to be finished up stat is a shirt I started for Hubby that was going to be a Christmas present. Well go figure I kinda over extended my Christmas sewing and this got pushed to the back. Hoping to get this one done for his birthday month of February. The fabric is some yummy, yummy Pendleton wool from right here in Oregon.
So that's my list and pretty lofty I'd say..a whole huge quilt this month...it's already the 3rd, I'd best get cracking! Good luck to all the ladies! Let's get motivated!
