January goal...finished!

Hello All,

Whew, I just made it. I got my dd's quilt top finished, which was my goal for January for ALYOF (which you can read about here).

As you can see, the wind was being a big problem today. So my pictures aren't all that great. But you get the idea.

My DD has a single bed, so this is plenty big enough. Just slightly longer than wider, thanks to the extra border top and bottom.

I'll try to get better pictures later in the day, when the wind has died down.. if it dies down.

For now, I'm calling it Fort Firefly, as that's the name of this cute fabric.

Thank you Melissa and Shanna!

Have a great day all.

WIP wednesday

Hello Everyone,

I've been working on my dd's quilt. I have all the quilt blocks sewn together, so now I just need to add a border.

Funny story... I designed this quilt in EQ, on my older computer. When we bought a new computer I saved some of the quilt designs so I can transfer them into my new computer and wouldn't lose them.

Well, for some reason, I never saved the design for this particular quilt. So I wasn't sure if I had designed it in a 5 x 5 grid, or a 4 x 6.

So I got out some paper real quick and made me a pattern up in the 5 x 5 grid. Just a quick sketch so I can put the blocks in the right spot. Then I sewed it up.

The funny part is... before I got out that paper to make my quick sketch.. I had decided on doing a 4 x 6 grid... lol, so I don't know why a 5 x 5 grid was sketched up.

But thats' ok, I really like it this way.

Especially the middle part here. With the girls surrounding the middle windmill.

I'm going to put a wide border on the top and bottom to make the quilt longer, and just a slim border on the sides to have it all come together.

Today I'm linking up with Lee. And with Lorna at SewFreshQuilts and her Bee Social Wednesdays. Thanks Ladies!

Happy New Year!!!! and goal setting

 A very Happy New Year to you all! I hope it's a wonderful year for you. Full of all manners of good stuff, and lots of creativity.

Shanna and Melissa are at it again. In for another Lovely Year of Finishes.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

For my first finish, I want to get my dd's quilt top completed.

I just need to iron and trim, then I can put these all together.

So I think I can get that much done!

Do you make New Year's resolutions? I don't really. But I would like to see about getting more time to sew and blog this year. My little guy is going to be 3 soon, so he is enjoying playing with the big kids a lot more. But that also means he is deciding he doesn't need a nap! He will nap maybe 3 or 4 days out of the week. He sleeps good at night though :)

So, we shall see what the new year brings.

Have a wonderful day! Thanks for sticking around thru my quiet times.

Linking up with Melissa and Shanna.
