I’m still working on this project that I started around Halloween (jeez, was that almost 5 months ago??) Last Thursday night I finished cutting the squares and started assembling the blocks…
So that’s what’s on my Design Wall today! There are 100 blocks in this quilt, but depending on the size (I’m not a great planner ) I may cut that down and make it a bit smaller. We’ll see.
I’m linking up over at Patchwork Times. Head on over and see what others are working on!
Cutting, cutting, cutting and I have tons of little squares to show for it!
I’ve actually started putting blocks together, too. I’ll be posting what I have so far on Monday for Design Wall Monday.
I wanted to get an entire row done before I stopped for the night last night, but I didn’t feel like sewing anymore around 8:30. After getting totally burnt out on quilting at the end of 2011, I haven’t done much quilting. I finished 11 quilts that year and then in 2012 I didn’t even get to half that, only 5 completes (honestly, I’m surprised it was that many!).
This year I want to build my love of quilting again, doing it not because I feel like I have to because someone is having a baby or getting married, but because I really WANT to. So little of my life is made up of things that I want to do or enjoy doing; I don’t want my hobbies to become a chore, too.
Look out for the finished blocks on Monday!
2012 was a crazy year for me. Our catering business really took off and I had almost no time to myself during the summer. After my crazy amount of finishes in 2011, I got a little burnt out on quilting and took somewhat of a break in 2012.
Here are the quilts I did manage to finish in 2012… (even if this post is a couple months late )
And finally, the Granny Squares Quilt
I have to say, I’m proud of the way my skills progressed over the year! I was extremely happy with how the last two quilts turned out. Here’s to more finishes in 2013!
