Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Review of 2012 Quilting Goals

Well I think seeing we're a quarter of the way through 2012 I had better review my quilting goals for 2012 and see how I'm doing!

  1. Finish a Block of the Month quilt - I'm working on it, 3 months done and 1 to do so far!
  2. Joined a Group - I joined the online Block Swap Australia group and I'm enjoying it so far!
  3. Make a scrap quilt - have some ideas, now need the time!
  4. Finish my UFO's. I have one done and one nearly finished quilting.
  5. Improve my free motion quilting skills - The quilt I'm currently doing is almost all free motion so working on this one!
  6. Make a quilt for my husband's grand-daughter Serena. I'm making the BOM in nice girly colours in the hope that it might become hers and complete two projects in one!
  7. Start on my ME quilt. - I have started on my hand sewn ME project and ended up making another one which is my Star Block quilt. Have the blocks just need to join them together!
  8. Organise all my projects into some sort of system, so I can keep track of them easily. Have set up a folder system so I guess this one is done!
  9. Use up more of my stash fabrics -  For the record, I have 3 plastic tubs and one fat quarter bag at this point! I do have an extra tub now but its full of scraps from all the blocks I've been making so it will go towards No. 3! Have only bought more white fabric I think!
  10. Try to speed up my completion of projects. I think I'm doing better, I've been sewing nearly every Wednesday but last 2 weeks have had appointments. Still managed to fit some sewing in though!
11.  I bought a Folded 3D Mariners Compass ruler set at the 2011 Quilt Fair in Adelaide and I want to try and make a quilt with it, possibly for my brother who lives near the sea and loves sailing. Seems appropriate!

12.  I want to make myself a tote bag to take all my stuff to work to replace the very sad and daggy looking bag I currently use. - Completed and working like a charm, roomy enough for extra items purchased or my sneakers to change into for walking home!

Hey, I don't think that's too bad! Way to go me! Off to a good start, just have to keep at it now!

I realised I hadn't put a photo up of my two lovely boys so here they are, Simon on the left and Kieran on the right:

A little hairy but lovely all the same!

Thanks for dropping by!
