2018 Goals

2018 is here and that means it is time to think about goals for the year. I have a list of quilts that I want to get done, and of course, there’s the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge, but I received a gift from dear friends that perfectly sums up what I hope to […]

#APQResolution – French Doors

I feel like I’m finishing up a school year and getting ready for summer because I have been finishing stuff up like crazy. Last week, I finished quilting “Rajah Quilt Revisited” which was a 2016 Block of the Month that I started in January.  This week, I finished a quilt that had been in the […]

#APQ Resolution – Rajah Quilt Revisited

This was supposed to be my finished quilt for March for the American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 UFO Challenge, but it needed to be completely quilted and bound so I’m happy to have it completed by June. This quilt was the 2016 Block of the Month from The Quilt Show, called “Rajah Quilt Revisited.”  It’s […]

UFO Update

At the beginning of the year, I joined the American Patchwork & Quilting 2016 UFO Challenge. For the challenge, you label your UFOs 1-12 and each month, APQ picks a number to work on.  I did well with them for a while, but I totally fell off the wagon in October.  However, I banged out […]

#APQSResolution – June

I know, it’s July.  But, I just put the finishing touches on my UFO for June for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge.  This piece was a machine quilting sample from years ago that just needed a binding.  It got one and now I can donate it to my guild for its mini-quilt raffle […]
