A Lovely Year of Finishes
Sometime yesterday I was sitting in my sewing room trying to decide what to work on, when this appeared on my sewing machine.
I'm not one to argue with fate so I started working on the FMQ, which I must say needs a lot of work. This quilt was put together with leftovers from my nieces' Christmas present and was basically a practice quilt to (idealistically) improve my non-existent free-motion quilting skills. Loud and obnoxious-looking quilt that it is, the rectangles make it ideal for trying out several different quilting motifs. Here are a couple that don't look entirely horrible.
30/30 Sewing Challenge
I also decided to roll with the 30/30 Sewing Challenge over at Berry Barns Design. The idea is to spend thirty minutes a day sewing for the thirty days in March. My goals are:
1. Finish the neon electric look-away-before-you-go-blind quilt.
2. Finish the purse I started yesterday.
3. Sandwich, quilt, and bind the Anemone quilt.
4. Borders on the Train DP9 quilt and sandwich and quilt.
I picked four goals because there are four weeks, so if I get busy I could work on one project a week. And when I get bored in between, I can always choose and start a NewFO!
