January: Lovely Year of Finishes

I'm so excited to participate in this fun linky party this year! I admired everyone's work from the sidelines last year, but this year I decided to join in. Like so many other quilters, I have way too many projects and stashed fabrics. While I try every year to finish what I start and use my stash, I've never quite made a dent. This year has to be different! We want/need to move out of our tiny house this year and who wants to pack and move all of this fabric and half finished projects? Not I.

Anyway, I digress. The one project I want to finish this month is for my mother-in-law. Her birthday is in mid-January, so I probably won't have it completely finished by then, but I'd like to be close. By the end of the month though I want it complete: pieced top, quilted and bound. Let's see how I do!

I am using this awesome tutorial from the Moda Bakeshop by the wonderful Kaye Prince. I think it is going to be so pretty. I hope my mother-in-law will love it!

Not much to see for now, but I can't wait to show it to you once these triangles are sewn into blocks!

I can't wait to see what everyone else accomplishes!

A Lovely Year of Finishes

I thought that pattern was so cute, too. I did a large single Dutch Windmill that I want to turn into a baby quilt sometime this year. Good luck on such an ambitious project.

Go, you! I'm taking part this year, too -- I need to get back into regular sewing!
