Winter is the perfect month for any and all forms of stitching. Dark and cold outside, warm and glowing inside. I am hoping to get a few things finished before the end of March, and am linking up this list of goals with Katy's Finish-A-Long. My goals for Winter are as follows:
1. To turn this lovely tartan wool fabric my Mister gave me as an anniversary gift into a long skirt. I received this pattern as a gift from Jeri.
2. To finish all the applique blocks for the In My Garden quilt I've been working on for a long time now. I'd be really thrilled to get the last four blocks of the patchwork top all completed by March. As I plan to hire the use of a long-arm machine to quilt some of it, as well as some hand quilting, I will save that part of the quilt finishing until the Spring.
3. ClaireEPoppins gifted me a Moda charm pack, so I bought another one the same and have sewn them into 35 square-in-a-square blocks. I would like to get these sewn together and then come up with an interesting border to make it bigger and to have it bound and quilted by the end of March. It will be a gift for an older lady friend.
4. I'd like to use these Sweet Life fat quarters to create a baby quilt for a dear friend who lives far away. I'd like to try the dresden plate idea for these too.
You might like to think about linking up any jobs that need finishing too, as there are prizes up for grabs for anyone who finishes the items on their list! For more rules and info click here.
