A Lovely Year of Finishes – January Finishes

alyof2015Is it just me or was January a bit horrendous?  I came home to a disaster in my house and have been grappling with it ever since. The good news is that amidst the chaos, I managed to be fairly productive. I pieced 4 quilt tops, quilted and bound 4 quits.  Here is the last one fresh off the machine.

Final Preschool Quilt - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI still have threads to bury on all four, but I am supremely happy with my finish. These quilts will be raffled off at Anne’s preschool to benefit their scholarship fund.

I have already sewn two more charity blocks for my circle of Do. Good Stitches and picked out fabric for my Patchwork City sampler quilt that I will be making with my guild. Look for more info on that later next week.

What about you?  How did you do this month?

What one item did you choose?

You have two requirements to be entered into the prizes this month.

    I thank you for doing this for us. I would never have chosen this one if I had just been looking for a project.
    I am not proficient on straight diagonal lines, but I am a little bit wiser on what to do and not to do.
    Now to figure out what to pick for next month.

  2. Thanks so much for hosting and running this all year long, it’s been just the incentive I’ve needed to get some projects done this year. Nothing like public accountability to get you motivated.

    I so adore those kids quilts – it’s a brilliant idea and you’ve done an amazing job! Hope the house issues settle down soon – hate to think how productive you must be when you’re not dealing with annoying situations! <3

    Oops! I linked the wrong finish. I’ll add my link to the finish I originally planned, if you can edit out the earlier one please. Sorry!

    I don’t know how you get it all done! The kids handprints are adorable.
