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.
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.
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.
Five weeks to go . . . continue making gifts. I made another fleece item from Angel Hickman Peterson’s website http://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.
Six weeks to go . . . This week I’m going to work on gifts. I found some quick and easy gifts to make with fleece, so I made a neck warmer, hat, mittens, and fingerless gloves.
You can find the tutorials on the following websites. Fleece Mittens Free Pattern
Fleece Hat and Fingerless Gloves and Fleece Neck Warmer ENJOY!
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.
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.
Twenty weeks to go . . . What shall I create this week?
Pressed for time , so I created an eyeglass holder from my scrap fabric; added my own twist.
Twenty-one weeks to go . . . I’m going to incorporating quilting in my weekly project.
Oh well, I didn’t do what I wanted to do, so I opted to make a quick change purse/pouch. Front and back pics of the project.
Twenty-six weeks to go .. . ?
I had another busy week, so I’m posting another bucket hat that I made. It’s a Kitsch Bitsch bucket hat pattern and it’s reversible. The free pattern can be found at Lost in Paris. This was a quick and easy tutorial.
