I learned about the Lovely Year of Finishes at the Sew BitterSweet, and I am joining up. The rule is, you have to choose one project at the beginning of the month, and finish it by the end. Yup, the one you promised to finish. This month is going to be a difficult one for quilting for me. I am away 18 of the first 20 days of the month, and I will probably have 3-5 days of day trips and overnights to finish up the month as well. When I am home, I will be catching up with all the things that pile up despite the miracles of technology, so I am making my goal very modest. I debated between two projects. One is my Kaleidoscope Paths quilt, which is quilted, trimmed and ready for binding. Kaleidoscope is an older project, and I would like to get it off the WIP list. The other is one of my 5 free motion placemats, 4 of which are quilted but need to be blocked and squared up to get ready for binding. It would be a smaller project , and I am on a roll with them so I am enthusiastic about seeing the final products. Plus I want to give them to my mom in February.
And the winner is….
…Placemats. At least one, bound and ready to gift. With luck, it will inspire me to finish the other 4, too.
