I think I have it figured out..............Oh boy - maybe I am biting off more than I can chew!
But I have decided to focus on the $10 quilts. I don't think it will too bad. HA!!! (I'm totally in denial! - as usual)
|This is A Pieceful Year - we worked on this quilt in 2003|
|These four seasonal samplers were done in 2004.|
|2005 - Welcome to my Cabin|
|Wish Upon a Star - 2006|
|Simple Country Sampler - 2007|
Part of these blocks are done (actually I think only the border needs to be completed). And I have one of these to do for someone who was in the class, but never completed it.
|2007 (the first year we started doing TWO - what was I thinking???)|
Anyway - the quilt top is together (I'll show you tomorrow). Just needs three borders and the binding and backing.
|2008 - Around the Block|
|2008 - Rosewood Cottage|
Are we seeing a pattern????? I get to the borders and then STOP. That is why it was easy to "finish" so many projects this year. However keep in mind that some of these borders will NOT be easy. They are going to take a bit of work to complete them.
|2009 - Nana's Farm|
|2009 - The Twelve Rows of Christmas|
|2010 - Quilter's Dozen Plus|
The central background for this is done and the tops of several of the months.
|2010 - Piecemakers Calendar|
Hmmmm - just started the top row. I really really want to complete one of these in my lifetime, so might as well be this one.
|2010 Pieceful Nights|
Must have been a weak moment to choose THREE in one year. Anyway - just needs the last border and it is done.
|2011 - Christmas Heart Lights|
|2011 - Dragon Star|
Also the start of trying to get these things completed!!!!! But they were completed in 2012 - part of my focused effort.
|2012 - Dear Jane|
|2012 - Farmer's Wife|
|2012 - Hobo Quilts|
|2012 - Spring has Sprung|
Making good progress - got lots of stitching to do around the applique. I know FOUR projects - what was I thinking????? I'm getting worse - NOT better.
That is all the classes from the Hobby Horse.
These ones are from Cockadoodle where I run the Christmas Club..................
|2010 - Candy Cane Lane|
|2011 - Welcome to the North Pole|
Hmmm - maybe half are started????
|2012 - A Critter Christmas|
Again - maybe half are done?????
|2012 - O Tannenbaum|
About two thirds done.........
And that is it for the Christmas Club.
The at Ruti's - I have these quilts.................
|2011 - Sylvia's Bridal Sampler|
Got 40 blocks to complete.
|2012 - Stonehenge Meets Jamestown|
This is a current project and easy to piece. I SHOULD be able to keep up.
And this project took place around 2007. The blocks are together - just needs to have sashings and borders.
|2007 - Underground Railroad|
ACK - that is 26 projects!!!!!!!!!!!!! No way - they can all be done in one year. But there are a couple that are done (not quilted, but done).
It would be a miracle to get those all done in the next year, but anything is possible. Again it boils down to focus!!!!!
So there you have it - my 2013 projects. Talk about planning for the future!!!!! I have to keep working on this years projects - then I can focus on those in the new year.
But as the year is ending - you should be thinking about what you really really want to get done. I am very concerned that if these quilts do not get together than NO ONE will complete them. Someone will open the box - wonder what the heck is going on and it will get tossed. I would hate that. So hence - this big charge on getting them done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yes - and imagine the SPACE that I will free up on the shelves if I could get most of these done! And the huge quantities of fabric and embellishments that could be refiled!!!!! Now that is incentive!!!!!!!!!
Haven't come to any decisions about my role in the guilds, quilting and teaching. But I do know that I want to do less commitments. Block challenges and exchanges are the first to go. That will free up some time - no decision on the rest yet.
Got more to post tomorrow, but had to tidy up a bit - we have Border Creek Reveal happening this morning and I have to make room so we can see the quilts.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
