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.

New Beginnings . . . Week 52

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.”

 

 

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.
