2016 - Time to Take Stock second instalment

Yesterday I shared my ongoing hand quilting projects and my list of UFOs.  There are 17 in total and by some standards that's excessive and by others a mere drop in the bucket!

Well, I'm just happy to have committed the list to paper so I can be re-inspired by the colours and shapes in my bins.

Let's start by looking at quilting accomplishments of 2015 bearing in mind that there was an extreme move mid-year where quilting took the back burner:


Flower Garden Quilt
Jungle Fever

Pinwheel baby quilt with prairie points

One Block Wonder

Scrappy Hexagon Quilt

Shattered Angles

Scrappy Hexagon Tablerunner

Weaver Fever

Orange Peel Die Tablerunner
When I look through these photos I'm actually quite amazed that I got that much done considering everything else that was happening with the family this year.

Next let's look at some things that have been set aside and are ready to go.


These are the future planned projects with fabric purchased and they are ready to go when an ounce of inspiration appears.

1.  Poppy panel with One Block Wonder frame - The OBW fabric is different but coordinates with the panel.

2.  Batik Magic Tile - fabric is pulled.  I've been wanting to start this one for awhile but need to wait until some of the UFOs have been completed.

3.  Bali Fever (Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx) - I managed to get some jelly rolls on sale before Christmas so I guess this means I will be tackling this pattern.  I have lots of friends who have tacked them but these Judy Niemeyer patterns intimidate me.  Time to stretch my creative wings.

4.  Floral log cabin - I used the remaining florals from my Flower Garden Quilt (shown above in the completed list) to cut logs in anticipation of doing this quilt.  It's ready to go whenever I am.

And that's about all for now.



  1. Thank you for all of the eye candy as I browsed your recent blog entries. We quilters have so much creative bursting energy that we all need to live to be 200 to make all our quilts.
