Finish; Complete . . . Month 1

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.

 

New Beginnings . . . Week 51

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 by Made 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. slippers

New Beginnings . . . Week 49

Four weeks to go . . . WOW, I can’t believe I’m almost there! This was a journey and I loved every minute of it. Let’s see what this week will bring; something out of the box. Maybe! I decided to make another fleece hat with ear flaps, so I used the Crafty Gemini’s DIY tutorial. I also made more reversible fleece neck warmers, and reversible fleece cowls.

New Beginnings . . . Week 46

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 with Josie 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.

New Beginnings . . . Week 39

Fourteen weeks to go . . . I took a bag making workshop with Michelle Reiter @njmqg (North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild); excellent instructor. So, I finally completed my Noodlehead Market Bag. I’m not too happy with my design choice for the binding and handles; too eager to finish, but I plan on making another one. The pattern is by Anna Graham. Click here for website.
