New month, new goals

Continuing on a theme, I'm aiming to have this quilted and bound by the end of the month.  It's another quilt top that's been hanging out foreEVER.  I'm pretty sure this one has been a finished quilt top in five different houses now.  I've moved 4 times since I pieced this.

You may have noticed a vacuum hiding under my ironing board in that first picture.  That goes with my second goal.  Tidy this place up.  Mostly in preparation for my nieces and nephews to sleep in here over the family day weekend.   But also so I can find things when I need them.

This includes deciding whether or not I'm ever going to use that bag of denim I have hanging out there or if I should just go donate it to the thrift store in town.

And finally, this stack of fabric is going to be made into at least one pillow for a housewarming gift for my Mom.  She painted the basement in adobe-type colours and this group of fabrics jumped out at me from the remnant bin at my LQS.

And since I'd perfected my half square triangles and pinwheels with the pinwheel sampler, I figured why not keep going.  I need 3 more of these 9" blocks.  And then I need to figure out if I'm going to do a zipper or something easier for the back.

So that's what I've got planned for the month.

A Lovely Year of Finishes


  1. Thanks for linking up! I'm also trying to finish up a few quilts this month - I made THREE sets of binding today! Now I just need to get quilting! :)
    And I love those fabrics that you found in your LQS remnant bin! The one print looks like Fandango - I love that line!
