2020 - My quilting year in review from Wendy's Quilts and More

Wow! What a year that was!

My 2020 finishes

At the end of each year I like to look back on the goals I set myself at the start of the year.  This year my goals were:

1.  to move away from English Paper Piecing to hand piecing with a running stitch
2.  to find a method of applique that suits me.

I've done well on my first goal of improving my hand piecing.  I even made some videos about hand piecing and put them on YouTube.  You can find them here

And as for my second goal, I ...

2020 Goals and projects from Pointless Quilter

So for 2020 our friendship group is having a similar WIP challenge as a popular quilt magazine.  You list 10 items on your WIPs list and assign a month to it.  Your goal is to at least work on that quilt during that month.  You don't have to finish the quilt - just make some progress.  We also have a second challenge to use a ruler, template or tool that you bought and have never used and to include text somehow. 

Here is my quilt list for 2020.  a

1.  Finish the 9 pillow sleeves I started 2 years ago ...
