Monthly Progress Report – January

When I started this blog at the end of last year, my main goal was to get all the quilting projects I’d like to do out of my head or off of my Pinterest boards. I can say that after one month, I have been sewing every day and accomplishing a lot.  Yay – a resolution that seems to be sticking!


This is the basket I keep in my sewing closet that holds all my current projects. Tonight, I cleaned it out and here’s what it holds.


My Scrappy Trip Along blocks. I have 18 completed out of 25. The remaining blocks have the strips sewn together, but need to be finished and pressed. I actually ran out of thread today. Bad quilter!


Cross Quilt-blocks are completed. I will be making a trip to Joann’s to get more of the chambray fabric so I can get this top pieced and completed, as well as buy thread. I want to get this quilt finished by the end of February.


Blocks for table runner: no progress here and no rush.


Cross Stitching progress. So far, I’ve created a headless housewife. 🙂 This is a take along project for when I’m stuck in my car waiting for my kids at school.


Not shown, but in my project basket is a completely untouched batch of Christmas Block of the Month kits from Fat Quarter Shop. I plan to start working on that in June or July.

My short term plans are to finish my Trip Along blocks by Friday and to complete my 4 patch quilt by Sunday.

That pretty much wraps up January.

To celebrate my first month of quilt blogging, I’m joining my first link party over at Lee’s blog Freshly Pieced. So, if you are visiting from over there, let me warmly welcome you and thank you for stopping by!
