What have I done in 2016 ? Lots are unfinished projects, I think.
In no particular order;
Humble Quilts). I had some issues with the last border but managed to finish it.
Suebee's World) and made these totes.
What's a year without a RSC? This quilt came together thanks to Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The block is Peace and Plenty. Needs border or just quilting?
Oh and I forgot Westering Women. The first six blocks are done; need to do six more in 2017.
Phew! Not too shabby. Now this being said, what do I do in 2017 ?
Well, first let's think about the January OMG. I want to work on my MIL's table runner. I need to piece a backing for it. You might be thinking it doesn't take a whole month to piece a little backing of 18 X 36 inches! and you would be right. Since my plan is to applique some autumn themed shapes on it so her table runner will be reversible, it will take me the month ... or maybe more! Have to play with the design some more but I am getting there.
In January, I'm participating in a different kind of quilt-along. Cécile (Patchwork Inspiration) and Béa (Une aiguille dans une botte de foin), in France, are offering a Log Cabin Blocks Quilt-Along, where you decide the colours, the fabric, the size, etc. It needs to be a Log Cabin block though; traditional block we link with Cécile or for modern blocks we link with Béa. You need to make at least 8 blocks a month for a minimum of 16 blocks. (But you can do more) The reveal is in March. This sounds like a goal for me. :^D
As I've said before, I don't do resolutions although I have a feeling 2017 will see a lot of red fabric.
Oh and the last year finished and this year started with some surprises. I won a prize from Lee Anna (Not Afraid of Color). I received some fun fur in the last week of December.
Yesterday, I had to go out on errands in the freezing rain. I decided to stop at the post office too and ... Oh My! a squishie envelope! Gayle (mangofeet) wrote a little note, saying this little piggy wants to see Canada. It was so happy to be here it jumped out of the envelope and licked my nose.
Until next time .... pick up a needle.
Oh! yes! Linking with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for OMG. Gosh! Almost forgot again.
