Week 6 Goals 2014

Wow! We are already in the 6th week of the year (Yes, I am counting the partial week at the very start of they year as a week).  For this week I have 2 simple goals. I need to sew the binding on my Riley Blake Star Quilt. The binding is already sewn to the front but now I need to do the hand sewing part. Normally I do not hand sew my bindings down but I am seriously contemplating entering this one in our local county fair this year so I want to go the extra mile and hand sew it.

I also need to cut some 6″ squares for the first ever quilting class that I am taking!!! Well that statement isn’t entirely true. I have taken several Craftsy classes, but this one will be in person with my guild. I am so EXCITED!  The class is about color value with Sew Katie Did. I am so very excited!  I need to cut 36 squares, all prints and NO solids. This will be quite a challenge for me. I have a hard time making decisions when it comes to fabrics, so I have a feeling I will be bringing about 60 squares and then cutting them down as I learn more from Katie.

What are you all up to this week?

    Hopefully I get my February goal quilt on the machine this week. I know how I want to quilt it. Just need to sit down and do it.

    Love your challenge piece, and so jealous that you’re getting to take a class with Katie, enjoy!

    Better to have too many and not need them than too few and wish you had more choices! Have a wonderful time. There’s an energy in real-time classes that is so good for one’s creativity! I’m plodding along. =)
