A Lovely Finish

This past year I have had a hard time actually finishing things. I have finished five good sized quilts and several wall hangings/charity quilts. I have about a million works in progress. Projects that I have started and for one reason or another stopped. When it comes to completed quilt tops my biggest, number one reason for not finishing is I can never decide how to quilt something.

In December alone though…I picked up the pace, I finished 2 quilts AND I made 5 blankets for my nieces and nephews, not bad since I am 800 miles from my sewing machine (thank goodness my mom was able to loan me hers!). Here is a link to the group quilt I helped make. Here is another link to the commission quilt I finished.  The past 2 weeks I have been sewing like crazy to finish 5 minky cuddle blankets for my nieces and nephews and I am so excited to say I have actually finished them – BEFORE Christmas!

Finishing is an important part of quilting, sewing, crafting, etc., and I was recently talking to my friend Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts about how it feels like we are always talking about what we are working on but never about things we have actually finished. Well 2013 is the year that all changes!  We have teamed up and decided to launch A Lovely Year of Finishes.

We have set a goal, 1 finish per month for the next year giving ourselves a grand total of TWELVE finishes!  AND…we are inviting you to join us!  We have lined up some awesome sponsors and will be running regular linky parties so you can show us what you are working on and a Flickr Group too! Oh wait! Did I mention there will be prizes too?

So go check out our page, grab a button and join the Flickr Group for A Year of Lovely Finishes. While you are at it, make sure you head of to Shanna’s blog to see her finishes from this month!

Since I will not be back before Christmas, I hope everyone has a lovely holiday, filled with family and happiness.

    Yay for you getting all that done. Hope your Christmas is everything it can be for this year, and there are many wonderful moments for you and Anne. I’ll check out your finishes. I might have one or two things that fit that category. =)
