Joy from January - tracking progress

>> Friday, February 9, 2018

January was a full month of quilting! I looked back at my goal setting post and here's what I accomplished:

civil war fabrics on point blocks roosting round robin

Caught up on my Civil War quilt guild roosting round robin - this round was the star.

modern row quilt guild roosting round robin

I finished my log cabin row on my modern guild roosting robin. I made quarter log cabin blocks and included some of the row-by-row license plates that I purchased because they match my colours!

white wonky star modern quilt block

For my star row I'm making wonky star blocks. I have one done and need to make 3 more. I'm still not sure if they will go on the ends of my previous rows to make the quilt wider or in their own row.

free block with signup to TQPM newsletter

I designed and donated a quilt block for The Quilt Pattern Magazine newsletter.
If you signed up before the end of  January, you would have received the February newsletter and a link to the block instructions.
You can still sign up for the newsletter and have access to the pattern next month.

quilting on pfaff machine jolly christmas quilt

I am not finished quilting my Jolly Christmas quilt. I must admit I find it hard to stay focussed on quilting a quilt! But I will get back to it - promise! My goal is to actually finish some quilts this year - and not have any Works in Progress (but finished tops are okay too!)

I did end up with some time to play - or rather - snuck in some other projects!

curling rocks table runner

I made myself a Curling Rocks Runner! I'm really happy I did :)

guild mystery quilt

I also found the time to piece my guild mystery quilt from last year. I had stopped at trimming the triangle units and worked on piecing the units, assembling the blocks, rows, and borders.
I want to quilt this REALLY soon and give it to someone special.

Whew! What a month! I had so much fun getting things made this month. I went to a guild fun day and have another almost finished top too - but that was in February so I'll share it soon ;)

With Joy,

Sarah V.

Nice, productive month! Love the fabric in the corners of your wonky star block.

Well done! LOVE your modern roosting robin quilt! and the wonky stars, and last year's mystery quilt! Is the "curling rocks" runner a tribute to Canada's success in the Mixed Curling event at the Olympics?

Love how you quilted your curling runner!! Great month of progress for you!!
