I have been thinking a little on how to prioritize my quilting for 2010... Last year Rose and I made a pact to make what we love and finish what we started, and it actually worked!!! With one exception I finished what I started in 2009. So I have made a small adjustment to the text in my side bar, and will keep on making what I love and finish what I start!
1. The Sugar Camp Quilt
The reason for the resolution last year... I just ran out of time for finishing it between all my Christmas sewing, but it is ready for layering and quilting. The backing fabric arrived in the end of December, I have batting on the shelf, and the stencils for marking my quilting lines ready. Just have to get around to basting it!
2. Carolina Christmas
This mystery quilt was started in the end of November and I really had no hopes or plans of finishing it in 2009. I did spend some time during the holidays putting the blocks together, and now have to assemble the top. Not yet sure if I'll do the pieced border Bonnie suggests, or if I'll do a plain border for this one; or perhaps no border at all? Backing fabric is bought and in the drawer, and I think I'll either do some "quilting made easy" (I still have a few rolls laying around somewhere) or some stippling on it.
3. The Winter Quilt
Ehhhh... this is in the category UFO... Rose and I started working parallel on this quilt back in September 2007 with plans on having it ready for the Aussie winterseason 2008, but none of us are even half way on the blocks. I have all the pieces for the whole quilt cut out and ready to sew, and they are kept in the recliner in my bedroom:
Wouldn't it be better to have a finished quilt in the recliner ready to snuggle under with a good book?
