2016 Projects in Review

I had lots of big ideas for 2016.  Looking back on my post on my quilting goals, written in early January, I even then had an inkling I was being too ambitious for myself.  While it doesn't seem like I accomplished all that much, I'm happy with what I did make.

I finished Rondeau (aka La Passacaglia), which I consider one of my more significant projects to date.

And I finished Ocean View, a simpler but still satisfying project.

I have two major WIPs.  First, my version of Plantation Road by Red Crinoline Quilts.  I made this quilt from stash, always very satisfying.  I have the backing pieced (also from stash!) and just need to get it to my quilter.

And I tackled another project in my Fig Tree Harvest collection.  I'm thinking of calling this one Pieceful.  I made all the blocks and just need to sew them together.  So there's a good possibility I'll have two early 2017 finishes.

I have several projects in mind for 2017, but first I need to clean up and re-organize my sewing room. I want to start the year with a fresh outlook.

  1. Beautiful quilts! And Peaceful is so,so pretty. Happy New Year!

  2. Great quilts - every one of them. Rondeau is an incredible finish given its complexity and I really like the colours in your woven quilt too.

  3. Nice finishes for this year and Rondeau is such a beauty! Happy New Year!

  4. We all know it's not the quantity to finishes but the beautiful projects you worked on and did finsh. You're off to a good start for 2017. There is something very satisfying to design a quilt completely from stash!


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
