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 ...

The Blues. New Fabric, New Quilt from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Every time I see a new line of fabric, I want to make a new quilt. There’s just something about cutting into pretty, fresh fabric that makes me giddy! This particular line is Janet Clare’s “The Blues” from Moda. I like all her fabrics, but this one is particularly nice because it is BLUE. The prints feature an understated musical theme with staves, crotchets, notes and such.

When using precuts, I typically make a quick and easy quilt to use it up. Villa Rosa pattern cards are perfect for that. I had a jelly roll with some yardage ...

Checking in at 30 June from Wendy's Quilts and More

Each year I like to set myself some quilting goals.  That way I don't forget about the quilts that I've started, but never got round to finishing.  

Setting goals also forces me to hesitate for a moment before I jump into exciting new things that I see online.  I pause, and think of all the things that I said I really wanted to do, and then I usually jump in anyway! How tragic is that!!

Here's what I said I'd work on in 2020 when I set my goals back in January.  

1.  Ballet with Kaffe ...

Monday Motivation Week 18, 2020 from Patchwork Sampler Blog

I am not afraid…I was born to do this.
                                        Joan of Arc

Do you need a little Monday Motivation? Need to spend more time in the sewing room to get your mind off all that is happening in the world right now? Join me and set a goal for the week to hold yourself accountable for getting one thing done.

How many times have you told yourself you would spend all your time quilting if you didn’t have to do X, Y, or Z? Many of us dream about having hours and hours of quilting time each day ...

My quilting priorities for 2020 (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

It's the start of a new year, so it's time to think about what I'd like to make in 2020.

I have two main quilting goals for 2020:
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'll be keeping those goals in mind as I work on these quilts below in 2020.

Here are the quilts I've already started and really want to finish in the first half of 2020:

1.  Ballet with Kaffe Fassett by Willyne Hammerstein ...
