Q1 FAL

I know it is a finish along but I like to list all the things I want to do.

1. Skull quilt
Love this and want to finish it for our bed.
2.Emu cross stitch
I really need to finish some cross stitches I have started. I am still pinning new ones to make!
3. Finish 9 patch quilt
This a very old one.

4. Start quilt for brothers 60th
I cant believe I found the perfect pattern already. The sundance quilt by Melissa at polkadot chair. It is a new free tutorial which is exactly what I was looking for.
A free quilt pattern for a squash blossom quilt. A southwest style simple quilt pattern and free tutorial. #freequiltpattern #quilts #quilting #southweststyle #southwest #squashblossom

5. Make bags
I have been wanting to make several different bags for ages and never get around to it.

6. Finish Breezy Day quilt top

Six things. I think it is a doable list. Let's see how I go.

Q4 FAL:Twin Quilts Done

I finished the two quilts for my twin nieces. The pattern is a freebie at Me and My sister designs.
It uses a Jolly bar so I bought a layer cake and cut it in half to get two quilts.

Q4 FAL Baby Quilt

I finished a quilt for my soon to be born great niece. I cant believe I am going to be a great Aunt! Scary thought. I used a free tutorial called jungle lattice by Craft buds.

January OMG

Now I have finally finished my sewing for Perth I can sew any of my million WIPs. Only a slight exaggeration.  My January goal is to make some more skull blocks. My filing system means I just need to grab the drawer with this project.



Here are the blocks I have already made.

December OMG


I decided to finish the baby quilt first as I really want to take that to Perth with me to give my niece so I didn't finish the Hawthorne quilt. I am up to hand sewing the binding down so it is very close to done.
