2014 Project Summary and 2015 Plans

Finally got around to reviewing my 2014 Project work.

During 2014 I had 57 projects on a list..... Suprise!!!  I did not get them all done.  Lol

Of the 57 projects:
15 totally done
8 tops done
4 projects have the blocks done but not assembled into a top
2 projects were removed from the list

So for 2015 my list is smaller - only 49 projects!!

8 of them are finishing the tips from 2014 and 4 are assembling/finishing the blocks done in 2014.  I hope that I don't bring any of these projects forward next year

I actually already got one finished this week and another one has binding ready to sew down!  (They are both small baby quilts!)

My other goal is to use as much fabric out of my stash as I can on these projects without buying more fabric.  That maybe hard to do but I am going to try.  

Wish me luck!!

Happy New Year Finishes!!

Between the holidays, family issues and work I have been too much away from sewing and blogging.

I do, however, have three finishes to share. 

The first is a lap quilt that will be a gift to a friend and is the first that I quilted with the Pro Stitcher computer on my aunt's Longarm machine. 

Here is a closeup of the quilting - which was a swirling pattern with dots

The second and third are baby quilts for several other friends

I had fun making the backing for this quilt as I was trying to use up the fabrics that I had leftover and was able to do it!!  I even found a way to use the rest of the red and some of the brown for the binding!

Just found out that another friend of the family had a baby boy so now I am off to make yet another baby quilt!!

Watch for my 2014 Summary post and 2015 Goals - hope to do in the next day or so.
