January Goal: A Lovely Year of Finishes

One of my sewing aims for 2015 is to get more stuff done. Or finish what I have started would probably be more apt.

What better way to hold myself accountable than to put it out there in print? I am going to participate this year with Melissa at Sew Bittersweet Designs and Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

For January's goal, I need to finish off my mini for the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap (round 3). So far I have the top done. 

Just the quilting, binding and extras to go. My partner gave loads of info in the questionnaire - I felt a bit overwhelmed by it all. You want to make something they love, you know? Thankfully they  also made a Pinterest board which gave me the colour palette and hex-piration. I then used Nicole from Snips Snippets hex plus tutorial as the foundation of my mini. I was so struck by her floor cushion using this block in Sewvivor. And getting all those triangle points to line up... Something new! So that's it. I am confident I will get it done since I have to. 

Check back in at the end of the month to see how I went.


  1. gorgeous! your partner is going to love it!

  2. That is very cute. Can't wait to see it finished!

  3. WOW......I love what you've done so far. I would definitely love to get it....if it was coming to me, that is. LOL


I love getting comments! Feel free to say hi. I'll do my best to reply back - sometimes work and chasing after Moo & Bird might make me tardy.
