I decided to not go with One Monthly Goal (OMG) and instead I am switching to 17 in 2017 as this fits my projects and UFO’s better. So here is my list.
Nanette’s 17 in 2017 Projects (see my 9 January 2017 Post for additional information).
For January I have completed all my goals, well with one exception – quilting my Oh Glory quilt. But it has now been moved over to February and hopefully finished soon.
Finished projects for January 2017. Cross off quilting of Dear Jane Quilt; Circa 2016 – Modified; Sewing Machine Cover; and Xmas Place mats for Doug and Jean.
I will now be working on catching up on A Bountiful Life – I have 4 blocks ready to prep for applique (selecting fabric) and have finished Block 6 in January – Yipee! Upon finishing the next 4 blocks I will then be half-way through with this project. There are a total of 20 blocks. It is similar to the Australian Version of Civil War Bride. I am saving the more difficult blocks for the end!
I am currently working on Section 4 of Stonefields by Susan Smith; Margaret Potts Quilt – a BOM with the Baltimore Applique Society, Brinton Hall (EPP project), and Handful of Scraps (EPP project). All of my applique projects will be on going and hopefully will have Stonefield’s and Brinton Hall completed by the end of the year. I am almost finished with Section 4 of Stonefield’s and have 6 more Sections – there are 121 blocks in the quilt. This is my center medallion for Brinton Hall. I am doing it in batik and need to sew all the hexagons around the 7 blocks. I am used Asian prints for those blocks. I am going to re-design the remainder of the quilt, just need a nudge to get going on completing the center!!!
For my new projects I am going to work from my list of 13 “Waiting in the Wings” Quilts See above list. I am also adding the Quiltmania 2017 Mystery Quilt 2017. (I am not endorsing Homestead Hearth – they had the pictures of the first 2 blocks). I have the first 2 blocks prepared and ready for reverse applique! Think I will be seeing a lot of dots when I finish it because I could not purchase enough of the background fabric that the Designer used. Quilt stores are holding it for kits. Hope I did not select the wrong fabric for the background! Time will tell.
When we are under stress in our lives – applique saves us because it is so calming.
Have a great Super Bowl week-end I would like to thank everyone for providing me comfort at this time in my life.
