Get It Done January Report

It’s time to check my goals for January.  Out of 4 goals I completed 2.  Frankly, without this challenge and a deadline of the end of the month, I wouldn’t have 2 items finished.  So I am very, very happy about this.

The Guild’s Quilt of Valor was quilted.  As a matter of fact, it was finished today.  Just in time for me to report that it was a completed goal!  (See how this challenge makes me get things done!)  I had to take pictures at night which is the very worse time to photograph quilts, but it had to be done.

Quilt is quilted with Patriot pantograph.

I also finished Ashley’s signature quilt.  It is the worse looking quilt I’ve ever made (Well, I guess I can remember one that was worse) but the point of it is the wishes written on the blocks from family and friends.  Hopefully, feather meander quilting will improve it a lot.

The Drunkerds Path quilt will be moved to February.  I will definitely quilt it.

The Wrenly Quilt-I asked my granddaughter to let me know if she would like it on her bed.  She hasn’t come over to see it yet.  I will definitely get her here and make a decision about this one.

Heart Wall Hanging-Finish applique, quilt, and bind.

Stepping Stone Blocks-Finish for Queen Bee QOV and piece Fourth of Judy tablerunner.

Thanks Judy for giving me this challenge.

Time To Return

I have definitely been missing around here. Christmas preparations just took over along with customer quilts and suddenly here we are at the middle of January. Since one of the family Christmas get togethers wasn’t until Jan 8th, I was still sewing gifts until then. Combine that with 2 laptop computers going down and I’m surprised I still have a mind to think at all. I can’t access any pictures I saved to disk since I don’t have a working laptop. This post is being done on the IPad. Si I do have a couple of pictures I took after everything went haywire.

This is a double size quilt which my husband and I made for a teenage grandson. The lighter gray areas have drawings he drew. They are lightly colored so they really don’t show in this picture. The pictures are of a ninja man, gun, monster, snake, soldiers, etc. the outside border is Army fabric. The pieced block is called “musket ball.”. Thought that was appropriate given the type of drawings. Not an exciting quilt to me but our Grandson was pleased.

Also made 2 of these totes for ladies in the family.

Hopefully I’ll make a decision about a laptop and be able to post more recent quilt pics.

Thanks for stopping by.
