End Of Year Quilting To-Do List

Just a couple more weeks until the end of 2015, so I made a list of sewing projects that I feel I could realistically finish.

#1 – Santa pillow – Done

121615A (1024x683)

Luckily this is an easy project and ready to be gifted to Middle Daughter.  The pillow is 16″ square with red flannel, fake fur and a black velveteen ribbon belt.

#2 – Hem pants – Hopefully I will get to this tomorrow.

#3 – Finish wool applique on Star of Yesterday – There are only 15 leaves left to applique then the top will be completed.  My goal is to have this done by Friday.

#4 – Machine quilt Bluegrass Frogs – Bluegrass Frogs is now a quilt sandwich and the plan is to start machine quilting this weekend.

#5 – Embroider the whiskers on my Gus quilt – I will start this one once the Star of Yesterday is finished.

#6 – Strip Ribbons – Quilt top half way done.

121615 (1024x504)I wanted to sew a quilt where I didn’t need to make a lot of decisions – something fun & easy.  Strip Ribbons by GE Designs is exactly that.   Originally I planned on making the lap size (4 blocks x 5 rows), but discovered that I didn’t have quite enough of the sashing fabric.  Therefore my quilt will be 4 blocks x 4 rows or 58″ square.

Each Strip Ribbons block uses one full jelly roll strip, so adjusting the size of the quilt is very easy.  Also this quilt is has no borders, just the outside sashing.

Time to get busy and get something else done on my list.
