I need to set some quilting goals for this year ... One comes from my 52 list and the others are things that I know I want to get done.
1 - Christmas stockings - find pattern, buy fabric ...
2 - Quilt for S - she's having a baby in August, I think. They aren't going to find out what they're having ahead of time so I'm going to make a green quilt. I feel like yellow is too girlie, so it will be green. Not sure what pattern yet. I've seen a few cute ones.
3 - Blue (the other) pinwheel sampler quilt: I need to catch up on the blocks. I think I need to complete 9 blocks before Saturday when the new block comes out. I also want to chart/diagram it out on the computer so I can decide what layout to use. I can't really put it anywhere on the ground because of its size. I need to get more fabric for the sashing, the border, the binding and the backing. I'm leaning toward flannel for the backing because I think the husband (aka hubby) will really like that.
4 - Pinwheel Sampler Quilt - I need to get border, binding, and backing for this one, though I may be able to piece together the border and binding from left over pieces from the "layer cake". As for the sashing, I am going to use the cream I've been using for the background fabric (I think) but I am not sure if I am going to put little pinwheel blocks in between each larger block - they're cute but it might be a little busy for me.
5 - Purple quilt - I have this cut out, but I just need to get to work on it. It is a little frustrating because one of the fabrics is a knit and thus really hard to work with - I will need backing, binding, border, and batting for this one. Oh, and I probably need batting for all the other projects as well.
6 - thank you gift for my wonderful friend who gave me her old sewing machine. I have something in mind but I need to get just one thing from the store to complete it.
7 - rag rug made from t-shirts. This is really cool. So far I have about 4 inches done. I'll work on it on Thursday night. Making the strips is time consuming and kind of messy but I'm actually really excited about this. I just haven't spent time on it lately.
Guess that's it for now though I am thinking of other things too ...
