I’m so excited for the new year! I plan to do a lot of quilting and hopefully make some money in the process. I’m doing two “firsts” this year. I’m participating in a mystery quilt along and a crazy quilt along. I also just finished another “first”. Sometime in November I signed up to test a pattern for a quilting magazine. Last night I finished the quilt and it is so cute!! I cannot post any pics until the pattern is actually published in the magazine, which I believe will be in April, but I’m sure you’ll agree that it is adorable! I am so excited w/how it turned out. Stay tuned for pics. Along with all the new quilts I plan to make this year, I have a few UFO’s I’ll be concentrating on as well.
Wall Hanging – it’s currently basted and awaiting quilting.
Mia’s Quilt – This is a quilt for my granddaughter which is still waiting for borders.
Summer/Spring Quilt – I really would like to have this done by May…but it’s on the back burner because it’s so big and I’m not liking where I’m at with it.
After taking these pics tonight I’m thinking about doing a complete overhaul and it makes me ill to think about all the seam ripping I’ll have to do. = (
Check Mate! – top done, needs to be basted and quilted. This is one I plan to sell on Etsy. If anyone has pointers or tips about selling on Etsy, please send them my way.
4-Step Flagstone – got fabrics picked out and 10″ squares cut.
Oh yeah I almost forgot! Last night was our 1st Quilters Anonymous meeting of the year. I won this basket o’ goodies in the raffle!
