Hi Quilting Friends,
One of my personal goals for 2020 is to participate in the online quilting community, and so I’ve chosen to work on my PHD in 2020 with Gail at QuiltingGail!
After I chose my UFO projects for this year, I made a little spreadsheet and added information about the steps that I will need to complete in order to finish each one. I even color-coded the spreadsheet because I’m fancy that way, LOL. Project #12 needed just two easy steps and Ta-Da! Finished. Other projects have a much longer path to completion, but having everything broken down into manageable steps will make it easier for me to “chunk” the progress.
I’m a full-time high school teacher, so I took advantage of my winter break and made some good progress on several projects. Don’t expect this much progress every time; it won’t happen again until summer break.
Project #1: Family Reunion Signature Quilt
All done! I had nearly a week off from work at the start of the month, so I did some sewing! I’ll write more about this when I link up with “One Monthly Goal” at the end of January.
Project #2: Make something with these spare HST squares
I’ve trimmed up the red & white squares to make a little table topper/ wall hanging for Christmas. (My own design!) It needs to be quilted, so it’s still in the “unfinished” category. Progress is progress though. I haven’t touched the blue & gold squares yet; still thinking about them.
Project #3: Lazy Log Cabin Blocks
In progress. I’ve started making the additional blocks that I’ll need, and will make more during the next couple of months. It is an easy project to pick up & put down again, so I’m in no hurry.
Project #8: Finish the Under Construction Quilt
The applique worker blocks are finished! Sew cute, and I’m excited to get started on the vehicle blocks.
Project #11: Wonky Halloween Sampler Quilt
The drawings are finished and I’ve printed the piecing diagrams. I’ll start sewing this after I’ve finished project #8.
Project #12: Finish Great-Grandma’s “Lone Star” Quilt
I’ve added a deep red binding to finish the fraying edges. I love red, and it made the red in the rest of the Lone Star really “pop”! The rest of the piece is in pretty good condition, so Great-Grandma’s quilt can be enjoyed again (carefully and gently).
Until next time!
And here’s me, linking up to the mid-January update linky party!
