A Lovely Year of Finishes – March goal party

Time to choose just one project to get finished up for my March Lovely Year of Finishes.

I am picking one of my oldest UFO’s to finish up. Last month I worked on the borders –

Deb's Cows border ideas

and decided to go with the brown. The fun boot fabric is pieced into the back along with more of the brown.

Cows for Deb is now on the machine and I have almost finished the light cream quilting.

Cows for Deb

I want to get this quilted and bound and off to Deb….a little late (since I started this prior to 2002!) but better late than never!

Go visit Bittersweet Designs or Fiber of all Sorts to see what everyone else is working on this month!

Finished! – January 2015 A Lovely Year of Finishes

I have finished the UFO that I selected for this month for the Lovely Year of Finishes! This is a baby quilt for a new niece who was born in early December.

This is Kendall’s quilt – bound and labeled. I still need to wash it before I give it to her, but the washing machine was full of clothes and it will get done later today!

Kendall's quilt

Sorry about the picture looking wonky. The quilt is actually square, but I have had to move a TV to the wall where I normally hang my quilts to take pictures of them. This TV is one of the huge old-fashioned, heavy ones, and I can’t move it by myself to take pictures, so it is making the lower right hand side of the quilt stick out, causing the curve on that side of the quilt. Oh well!

I also need to update my totals for my UFO Busting efforts so am also linking up to Vicki Welsh’s UFO Busting January report. Looking at my stats, it appears I don’t have this quilt as well as one other on my “Open Project” list, which means my net “Open Projects” number is going up one from last month!

  • Open projects – 27
  • Projects finished since last link up – 1
  • Projects started since my last link up – 0

Hop on over to the finish party here or go over and visit Shanna at Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of Sew BitterSweet Designs to see what everyone else has accomplished with their Lovely Year of Finishes. Then go visit Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber for some more fun!

I will also eventually link this to the 2015 first quarter Finish-A-Long to get it counted for a finish! Yay!
