I’ve been talking about needing to use up some of these Jelly Rolls and I’ve got a ton of Fat Quarters too so we were talking on HeartStrings and decided that 2019 will be the year of the precut. Stephanie will choose a precut each month and we’ll make a quilt using that one (using another kind of precut is OK too) and we’ll see how many of these we use up because I don’t know if you’re like me but my precuts look so pretty, they tend to sit on the shelves for a long time!
Can you believe there are just 7 weeks left in the year?!! It’s time to think about what I want to finish up before January rolls around … but first, I decided I deserved a treat and started a new quilt today.
It’s based on this vintage quilt that I saw on eBay.
I’m still working with my pile of grays so I debated what background to use …. light, medium, dark?!
I decided on the medium, mottled gray – we’ll see how it goes.
And as far as goals for the end of the year go … this is what I have so far
- Trim and bind the Patriotic Rail Fence
- Make windmill blocks, assemble top
- Load and quilt Maureen’s stocking quilt
- Finish making the green/brown flock of geese blocks and assemble that top
- finish knitting the Yowza shawl
I’m traveling twice before the end of the year and we have company the week of Christmas so I’m going to start with this list and if I finish it all up…I’ll add to it.
