New Year, New Challenges

Note: Giveaway post is here.

Good Morning! I am always on the lookout for ways to push myself to creativity. Yes, I love to sew and quilt, but I have discovered that if I look at lots of other quilters works, it inspires me to keep going on my own projects, as well as to come up with new projects. This year, I have decided to try and join up with Adrianne at On the Windy Side for her 2015 Finish Along. You will see the button on my right sidebar. This is my first quarter list of proposed finishes.
 This first is a bunch of pennant flags, made from the book Modern Bee. I made it two years ago, but never finished it because I didn't really like the way it turned out. Need to quilt it and bind it.
 This is one I put together with a couple of charm packs and the scraps left over from my Petals quilt. It too needs quilting and binding...for the last couple of years.
 This is my Cat Weave quilt. I am trying to decide how I want to quilt this. Needs quilting and binding.
 This is my X plus quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts Bee. Finally have the blocks together (my month was August last year) and need to figure out a backing, quilting and binding.
 I pulled these for either a quilt of pillow. I have made a couple of blocks and I like it so far. I just need to decide what it will become so I can move on with it.
This beauty needs quilting and binding. I made it along with Lee at Freshly Pieced and I want to finish it now, so it will be ready for next year's holiday season.
This quilt top is maybe 5 or so years old? I made it from the first jelly roll I ever bought. It is a Fig Tree line called Gypsy Rose. I just wanted to see what I could create with a jelly roll. Never did it before. Now, I want to finally quilt it. I have a quilting plan, and a backing (finally) so I want it done. It will be going to live at my middle daughter's house whe I get it done.

And I think that is enough for one quarter, don't you?  I will be excited to see how I do in the personal challenge. If you are interested, join up with us!

  4. This is my first time with the Finish Along also. Looking at your list I'm thinking I am not challenging myself enough with the items that I want to finish in the first quarter!! LOL

    Hmmm, perhaps I'll pull a few more things out . . . . have to see what I have going.

    I love the Fair Isle quilt. I may have to get that pattern; I think my friends might enjoy having a quilt with that design.
