If you were with Shanna and I last year we did a mid-month check-in. These were fun, but some work for us that wasn’t heavily linked-up.
This year we’re trying something new.
For the middle of the month, we’re going to highlight a person that participates in #ALYoF so we can encourage everyone to visit one another. You all are what makes this link up so exciting.
Okay our fantastic sponsors help a bunch too!
Sew BitterSweet Designs
Green Fairy Quilts
Honey, Bunny and Doll
This will fall in the middle of the month so you don’t forget us and the goal you chose during the beginning of the month.
This month we are going to highlight a long-time participant of A Lovely Year of Finishes

What’s your ALYoF goal this month? To finish my project for the Mosaic Tiles blog hop from the Modern Bee book
How do you approach your sewing goals? I try to make my goals do-able,and as well, I set little progress goals on more than one project at a time so I don’t get bored. One day I might chain-piece HSTs for one project and iron and trim something from another project.
How do you organize/prioritize your projects? I keep the pattern (whether printed or a book) with the fabrics and any templates either in a baggie, or a plastic storage tub depending on size. I keep any hand-sewing or embroidery projects at my computer desk, as well as small things to trim so I can do them while watching tv or checking emails.
What is your current favorite project that you are working on? Will you share pictures with us? My favourite project right now is my newest and most unplanned one. On the same day that a friend released a great tutorial, another friend announced a pregnancy… it had to be done! The tutorial I am using can be found here http://euphoriajessica.blogspot.com/2014/01/scrappy-slice-o-pie-blocks-tutorial.html
What is your dream project to work on? I have almost all of Jen Kingwell’s patterns. Any one of them would be a dream really… I am just working on convincing myself I can do it 🙂
What is your favorite time of day to sew? Pretty much anytime other than late evening… I go to bed early, and if I am still sewing it tempts me to stay up, so I have to stop myself lol.
What is your favorite quilting/sewing accessory? Hard one… probably my Best Press and seam ripper… with those two I can fix almost anything!
What is your number one quilting/sewing goal for 2014? to actually make more quilts. I normally do so many swaps that I don’t get time to make quilts, and I want to return to more quilts, less smaller items.
What is one technique you really want to learn? I would like to learn FMQ… I figure with making more quilts this year that shouldn’t be a problem!
Thank you so much Katy for joining us today! We loved learning more about you!!!
Don’t forget to link up your finishes during the last 7 days of the month! We can’t wait to see them!
That is cool idea! I like that.
This is a great idea! I’m looking forward to reading about fellow participants. 🙂
What a good idea to get to know each other better. I’ll visit Katy in a minute.
Thanks for sharing… This is a fun addition to ALYOF 🙂
Very nice I will give it a try
Great idea for mid-month inspiration and encouragement!
Fun interview! I am making progress… but very slowly!
thanks Katy for sharing. I like your tips for staying organized.
This is an awesome idea 🙂 Thank you Katy for sharing a little bit of yourself with us.
I like this idea, thanks all!
