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.

Mid Year 2014 To Do List Review

Well now that I've finally realised we are half way through the year (already!) its time to review my to do list again to keep myself on track.
  1. Broken Herringbone Quilt - finish blocks and put top together  Done!
  2. Quilt 'And Sew On' Wallhanging made last year.
  3. Mariner's Compass Quilt for my brother Kym (I have ruler set I bought several years ago I want to test out!)
  4. Complete and quilt QBSA swap star quilt.
  5. Make more blocks using crumb scraps I did four more of these on my retreat in March, now I have 8.
  6. Use my rainbow swap charms to make a quilt. Top is done and partly quilted so pretty well done!
  7. Complete Cot Quilt for my niece - this is my January challenge project and is underway! Done
  8. Make more Star Value scrappy blocks I have cut out all the pieces ready to stitch together
  9. Quilt Star Surround Lap Quilt Done - ready to gift to new great niece in December!
  10. Make a Shadow Trapunto project from book by Geta Grama Done - cushion made!
  11. Use pinwheel blocks made at sewing getaway into a project - maybe placematsDone
  12. Christmas swap charms - use in a project - perhaps a table runner and/or pot holders? Currently in progress as this July's UFO project. 
  13. Castle Ceiling Quilt - continue handpiecing. Well on the way, 9 rows together (diagonal rows).
  14. Make handbags from patterns won last year.
  15. Project using mixed charms from swaps and scraps using pattern from book I have
  16. Make quilt top using Peter Rabbit fabric pieces
  17. Continue with QBSA block swap
  18. I Spy project using swap blocks - very long term as I don't need this yet.
  19. Finish watching all my Craftsy workshops I've signed up for, particularly the Leah Day ones.
  20. Try quilting feathers this year!
Very satisfying seeing the projects getting ticked off each quarter! (The first 12 are in my UFO list this year so hopefully things will continue to stay on track.)

How are your UFO's? Are you winning the UFO battle or are they taking over?!



  1. Well done, so satisfying to see there are plenty of things "done" on your list! My list is not as impressive, but thats what happens when you keep starting new projects!

  2. That's quite list and you seem to be making pretty good progress through it.

    I also vowed to finish up a number of lurking WIP's this year before I started anything else and I seem to be winning the war!

  3. You're brave writing a list, but it looks as though it's working and you're crossing things off. Keep up the great work!
