I really want to establish a weekly routine of sewing and in keeping with my 2016 goals that I posted previously, I want to get more projects done this year. That's why I'm going to make a specific list of projects that I'm hoping to finish over the next 3 months and participate in the 2016 Finish Along. Hey, maybe even a few of you will join me!
FIRST QUARTER PROJECTS1. Modern Quilt Guild name badge.
The block is done but I still need to quilt my name and some of the sewing machine details, then bind it.
2. Stash Bee 2015 Quilt.
3. DIY Pelmet Boxes
This sad photo depicts what will hopefully become a cute pelmet box to go over one of my dining room windows. If I can pull this off, I need to make 2.
4. Pinwheel Quilt.
5. Sewing Machine Pad
I like the idea of having a handy place for my small scissors, seam ripper, marking pencils, etc. Here's the fabric that I've picked out for this project.
6. Christmas Ornament Wall Hanging
I'm really hoping to stay ahead of the game and get a 38" x 18" wall-hanging finished so I can actually use it next year. Here's a link to my inspiration and here are some of my fabric pulls.
7. Mini Cathedral Wall hanging
Before I cut into the fabric for my parent's cathedral window bed runner (fabrics seen here), I want to make a practice one with some scraps first. Plus, it will be something nice for me to hang in my sewing room.
8. Teacher Appreciation Gift
Instead of waiting until the last minute this year, I'd like get this out of the way a little earlier. For my son's kindergarten teacher I plan on making another One Hour Basket to fill with goodies. Here are some of the ones I've made in the past. Lucky for me, I only need to make one this year, instead of 4.
Given the various bee blocks I'll need to make and some of the other projects I need to start, I think that's plenty of things to finish up by the end of March!
