A Lovely Year of Finishes 2013




It's a new year and I, like many others, am trying to set my sewing goals. I have joined some classes and a quilt-along. Today I am starting to gather all those ufo's and make THIS year A Lovely Year of Finishes.  I'm hoping by joining this group, I will finish the year with nothing in the UFO box.  A girl can dream....

Scrappy Wonky Log Cabin Throw

This is my January goal.  What was supposed to be a gift for a Christmas exchange is now my first UFO for 2013.  I would like to have this quilted and the binding finished by the end of January.  Ambitious, yes, but I have been commissioned to make a t-shirt quilt for a graduation gift and need to finish this before I get started on that project.

I have to finish up the snow dye fabric and will be back with that later today,

A good idea to set a goal on finishing an individual project - I was just trying to finish as many UFOs as possible!

Hi Sharon,
I have lots of UFOs to finish this year. I want to finish this one in January. I have it all basted as of today, but started a new project this afternoon. I get too easily distracted. This group will help me get these UFOs finished.. Good luck on yours!

I love the way those wonky blocks look with the black sashing. I may have to steal the idea.

Abby,
I would like to take credit, but I participated in the Sandy Quilt Block Drive over at The Quilting Gallery and had so much fun with them that I just kept making them. Here's the tutorial if you are interested:
