I have so many unfinished quilt projects that I’ve started years ago. I’ve decided to challenge myself this year and complete my works in progress (WIP). I’m going to post my progress weekly. I’ll show pics of what it looks like before I begin.
I’ve changed my mind and decided to make this a monthly challenge because it’s all about finishing and completing my WIPs. If I have time I will blog my progress weekly.
This is my first WIP (Work In Progress) that I’m going to complete. I can’t remember if I called this quilt “Metro” or “Metro Lines” it’s sandwiched and ready to be quilted.
I have five more days in Month 1 to complete this baby quilt. I decided to quilt it with my walking foot and make large wavy lines. I posted two pictures showing my progress. I know I will complete this before the thirty-first. I think I’m going to quilt a few more wavy lines between each row.
I’m almost finished. I added the binding; last hand stitch and wash. I’ll make my deadline.
One week to go or should I say, finito. This is it! It’s finished! I did it! A new project every week for fifty-two weeks. I’m elated! I finished my challenge for the year. Below are pictures of my last project. It’s a combination neckwarmer/hoodie (it’s similar to a neck gaiter). Throughout my year of creating, making and sewing projects. I realize that “There’s nothing new under the sun.”
Two weeks to go . . . Still on my quest to make as many gifts as I can. What will I add to my list? I crocheted a pair of Super Easy Slippers byMade With Love By Glama.I loved her video tutorial; tips and techniques were great. She has several videos on making slippers. I’m going to make another pair when I’m not pressed for time.
Five weeks to go . . . continue making gifts. I made another fleece item from Angel Hickman Peterson’s websitehttp://www.Fleecefun.com.She has a lot of free and easy patterns; nice gifts to make and give for the holiday. I made a quick; child size, fleece hat with ear flaps.
Seven weeks to go . . . I guess I should start my holiday gift making. Well, I didn’t start my gift making because I had a very busy week, and my weekend was full too. I took a Nuno Felt Workshop on Saturday withJosie Dakers; sponsored by NJMQG (North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild). I really enjoyed creating my masterpiece. Josie creates beautiful felted scarves; after creating mine, I truly appreciate the fibers of her being.
Nine weeks to go . . . Wow! I can’t believe it! The weeks have gone by sooooo fast. What will I create this week? I decided to make me a pair of slippers. I found a free pattern on Pretty Prudent’s website. This was my first time using Minky fabric, so messy, but I’m pleased with the end results.
Ten weeks to go . . . What will I create this week? Another busy week, so I had to make something quick. Fleece Fun has several free fleece hat patterns; many variations from baby to adults. I made a quick basic fleece hat. Click the link for website and videoFleece Fun
