So, here goes -
1. Back, baste, quilt and bind Briar Rose - and then give it away.
|I like this photo better than the quilt top one.|
3. Finish piecing my hexies and turn into a quilt. Must be done. I've given myself a deadline. Seriously!
4. Turn this pile of cut fabric into a quilt. I've started the cutting and it will be an easy and simple make. It will be backed with the spare Ikea fleece blanket and it is destined to go to Alison for her quest for quilts for street children in Mexico. You can read more about it here. All the fabric was languishing in my stash, including the fleece blanket. Much better that it be put to good use.
5. I can't show you more than this fabric stack at the moment, but it will be a quilt in the not too distant future. Another one that I wish to get done by a set date.
And I am stopping there. Realistically I could put all my WIPs on here, but we know by now I will not get them done, so why bother. I have listed the items I must continue to work on. They're for charity. They are gifts. I need to do them and not distract myself. (Okay, the Christmas quilt doesn't have to get done but I would really like to not put it off until next December.)
The past few days have been a flurry of fabric pulling, quilt designing, and a huge pile of fabric cutting for three different quilts. I have ended each day exhausted, because obviously real life is happening too, but with a great feeling of satisfaction for actually accomplishing stuff. I like feeling like that.
Now, if you will kindly excuse me, it looks like I might have some sewing to do. Linking up with Katy, because that's what this is all about.
