Sewing with Stitcher – One Stitch at a Time

My 2018 Projects List

Like many other quilters, I like looking back over the past year and reviewing how much (or little) I completed.  Of the 30 listed quilts I wanted to finish in 12 short months,  1/3 of them no longer reside in the “please do me” tower.  A few other projects I had not anticipated were added to the list – most small and quick finish and then there were a couple graduation quilts, not so small or quick.

I thought I should be more reserved in my goals for 2018.  I have 6 quilt tops cut and ready to be put together. If I piece and quilt one every two months, I could cross those off of all lists!  Doable?  Yes, if I keep focused!

  5. Hunters Star
  6. Applique House Quilt/Wall Hanging

I’m not going to put anymore on my list.  If I happen to want something small and quick to complete, I do have a stack of UFO’s that meet that description!

In my search of remaining projects, i came across a BOM I was putting together for a beginner class I hoped to teach.  I’m contemplating doing it in this forum over 3-6 months.  Not only will those interested be able to sew along, I will get a quilt completed that isn’t one of the 6 I am aiming to do!

Oh, so close to being done is the Allietare mystery quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter and presented in 2015.  You can get the clues and pattern at http://quiltville.blogspot.com. I was excited to get the top together and simply ran out of time to quilt it before our trip to my oldest son and his beautiful wife’s home in California at Thanksgiving.  It is the first bed size quilt I have made for them and just had to surprise them with a peek of what they will eventually get.  Finally quilted, but now I decided to remove the silver skinny border and replace it with a wider one, so my work is still not completed!
