Finishing up blocks. . .

Loving my 30's blocks.  I have one more to do and then I'm finished the basket blocks.
And here's the Civil War repro one:
The blue and yellow 30's block above is the same pattern as this one!

Things I made in 2018

I thought I'd make a list of things I did make in 2018 so I could feel good about myself!

  1. Eagle Quilt for my nephew.  It was very hard and my aunt says it's the best quilt I've ever made.
  2. I did a full tushe adjustment on a pattern and made two pairs of better fitting pjs for Tig.
  3. finished my Patriotic Pineapples quilt
  4. made DH's anniversary socks
  5. made my Bandolier shawl
  6. made a bunch of blocks-including finishing all of the blocks for my PA Dutch quilt that was started a very long time ago!
  7. made a pair of cabled fingerless gloves
  8. made a wavelength shawl
  9. knit the socks i'm wearing right now-I didn't list those on Ravelry and I  need to.
  10. I made my star wars halloween quilt-which is weird because I don't really celebrate halloween.
  11. found out i'm anemic!

Goals for 2019

I can't believe Christmas break is over and I'm headed to work again on Monday!  After reading about Jo's completed BOM, I decided to start my list anew. 

  1. PA Dutch-needs sashing and borders
  2. Chocolatier-needs blocks
  3. Cool Yule-needs sashing and borders
  4. Ramona's baskets (civil war): one block left then assemble and make the borders
  5. Ramona's baskets (30's): need to make three blocks, then assemble and add borders
  6. Shelby's graduation quilt/goose chase-this one is the one that has really slowed me down
One the plus side, in December I found out that I am anemic and that's why I'm exhausted all of the time.  I started taking iron so I am hopeful that will help with my energy level and I'll be able to sew when I get home in the evenings. Plus the new Saturday Ramona started today!

The fabrics are batiks which I normally don't care for.  In fact, I was going to use civil war repros but I really like how this one looks, so I bought the batik block.

I need to make of list of things I completed this year.  That will make me feel better!

And other projects. . .

So I'm working out some sizing issues on my Goose Chase quilt.

And I have made a good start on my scarecrow quilt.  I actually fused everything down Saturday afternoon and took it to embroider on at my mom's for movie night.  This picture was taken before I started stitching.  After I get a little farther I'm post a better pic.

More Ramonas

My September blocks.  I knocked these out yesterday so I will be ready for our Ramona group this upcoming Saturday.

Springtime Showers

I can't remember when I started this but I love the fabrics.  The pattern is the Springtime Showers Mini quilt from Polka Dot Chair.  I've had the focus fabric forever-like ten years and never found the right project for it.  I'd like to make one for my sister as well using this fabric:
 I love it so much!!!!  I kinda want to make something with it for me too!!!!
