Making way for 2020

Can a whole year have passed by? Sew cliché I know, but sew true. In 2019 I finished 8 of the 12 quilts from my long list of projects begun but not finished.

I did start a few new things and some of them I finished as well.

12 projects in all and over 231 hours of stitching. Some of it hand stitching!

I did take on a Sue Garman designed Block of the Month Snowman


with Traditions at the White Swan (that has since closed their doors, sadly). And have been working steadily on a handful of wool projects.

The beautiful quilts made by my wonderful customers, did take some of my time; almost 200 hours on 30 quilts in 2019.

Here is the 2020 list. The four from 2019 are there and a few more. All from a long list of quilts I have already begun, or planned to begin, or bought fabric to make. I left a few months blank to allow some extra time.

Love seeing what everyone else is up to out there at American Patchwork and Quilting UFO Challenge. Also plan to stay connected with goal setters at Elm Street Quilts and their One Monthly Goal; I missed the January link up, but hopefully will catch up with them in February.

And this year I am planning with a friend in Colorado to quilt across the miles. We are planning our own My Small World. We will be sewing them together across the miles; with monthly goals and helping texts and emails along the way!

It easy to keep listing things…now to begin! There is something exciting about a new year with all its hope and promise and clean start. It’s fun to look back and wonderful to look ahead. I’m blessed and sew happy to still be quilting with terrific spaces to imagine and create. Good luck with your projects and goals in 2020.
