It's time to join the 2018 Planning Party at quiltingJETgirl and I'm excited to start thinking about my goals for next year. I started 2017 really strong, however, the death of my husband's grandpa in August really threw me for a loop. We've been doing a lot of stuff (that needed to be done) around the house and I just haven't been sewing. I'm ready to start fresh and with less planned on the weekends, I hope to be able to sew more.
Three priorities this year include finishing mom's fall quilt to gift to the Terra Sancta Retreat center. All it needs are the sashing strips and borders, but I struggle with them, so it got put away. I'll take this to retreat and finish the top up.
My Farm Girl Vintage blocks are all done and sat all year, so I am ready to sash and border them. Again, it's the sashing piece that I struggle with, so it's just never been done.
My scrappy trip around the world needs about 26 more blocks. It's a top, but I want it bigger, so I'm going to make more blocks this year as I finally have more scraps to make them with.
Other plans? I want to finish my blue/yellow scrappy trip around the world. I simply love making these, but I struggle with doing the strata sets. I also have a blue/yellow Blue Ridge Beauty I want to make for my cousin's wedding and it will need to be a priority this year. It uses the scraps from the TATW, so they are kind of one in the same.
My new start - heart shaped bargello I've been saving the fabrics for over the past 5 years. It's time to make it a priority.
