OMG! It’s December!

Hi Quilting Friends,

December is (almost) here! I’m posting my goal a little early this month because we’re going to be busy on the blog with our “12 Days of Christmas” series, starting tomorrow. (You’re invited to come back and see what’s up, of course. We’d love to have you join the party!)

My One Monthly Goal for December is to create an Orange scrappy quilted fabric box for storing scraps! I’ve made three boxes so far, shown here:

I had considered choosing a more involved goal for December, but decided to take it easy on myself and save my other project for a time when I won’t be as busy. Self-care is important, especially during the holidays.

My long-term plan is to use my existing scraps to make a box in every color of the rainbow, to be utilized for scrap storage. My scrap “collection” has grown beyond the capacity of my current organizational system, so it is time to “thin the herd” and use up some scraps. Look for some major scrappy quilting from this girl in 2021!

Speaking of scrappy quilting, if you have a ton of fabric scraps then you might want to join us in January for our “Stash Bustin’ Scrappy Sampler Sew-Along! Stay tuned for more information.

And away we go!

Happy quilting,

Sharon

I’m linking up with Gail at Quilting Gail for the PHD in 2020. Here’s my tally sheet for November:

Looks like I have some finishing-up to do in December, unless I want to put the unfinished 2020 starts on my UFO to-finish list for 2021.

  1. I do love your rainbow baskets goal. This year I am focusing on unfinished projects dating back to 2004. Its difficult as I am easily distracted and then off to another project. I have mountains of scraps. Maybe 2021 can be an opportunity to reduce this volume.

    1. Thanks Lynn! Good luck with your UFO projects. I seem to get distracted too, and I still have several large unfinished quilts that I need to quilt. Too many ideas and too little time!
