Biting the (proverbial) bullet

It's time to stop procrastinating and list my 2015 quilting goals

I have two daily quilt block goals, the Somerset Patchwork Star a Day blocks and the Farmers Wife Sampler blocks

Bricks and Stepping Stones is my current leader/ender quilt

I want to finish three Block of the Month Quilts

Pies and Tarts


Citrus Sweet Love

I'm swapping two blocks a week with two friends (so making two sets of three blocks).  They are Scrappy Sisters Choice blocks reduced to 5 inches.

I would also like to

Make a Tardis Quilt

Finish ONE hexagon quilt this year

Quilt one Charity/donation quilt per month

Only buy fabric for backings or to complete a specific project

Start a Millefiore (La Passacaglia) quilt

Make a quilt for myself from my Tula Pink stash

Finish the quilts I promised to my kids/partners/grandkids


If I get this accomplished, I'll be SO happy

um, hi...

"tap" "tap"

is this thing on??

Whew, can't believe it's 2015

Where did last year go?

Quilting, illness diagnosis, drs and specialist appointment and quilting.

Can't forget that a grandson entered the family

 Also quilted, sewed, hand pieced.

Demonstrated hexagon English paper piecing four times, finished the second Insanity quilt top in Kaffe Fassett fabrics

Finished three quilts for me.  Disappearing 4 patch in Terra Australis fabrics, Omigosh in Civil War repros and my own design, Nana's Pansies.

 Nana's Pansies and a ball I made for my grandson won prizes at Pakenham Show

All my kids and grandchildren got together in September (eldest daughter, and her family traveled a LONG way to get here)

Other than that there was the usual family stuff, a broken arm (Mr 11), birthdays, school camps, kids growing up way too fast..

I'm looking forward to 2015 being a little quieter so I can quilt and blog

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts
