I have a few wall hangings and mini quilts that I want to get backed and quilted and up on my walls. This next one is my first sampler wall hanging that I ever pieced. I think I might hand quilt it with some big stitches, not quite sure. I think that is what has been holding me up on a lot of these. The decision of how to quilt each of them. I have only hand quilted one quilt quite a few years ago. Others I have tied, more utilitarian quilts, and one king size quilt I made for my one of my daughters I had quilted by a local long arm quilter.
These next two are from the Aurifil mini QAL 2015. Again I am thinking hand quilting and I already have one safety pin basted. Probably should start with this one.
Again thinking big stitches on the above mini.
This next quilt was a QAL that Red Brolly had on her blog a couple of years ago. I really want to finish it for a guest bedroom that I am working on putting back together after having 4 grandsons living with us for almost 2 years. It is empty and I just need to replace the bed and would love to get this up on the wall. As you can see most of these quilts have been folded and stacked up so they need a good pressing which I did not take time to do for these quick pictures.
I also have some other sewing projects I want to get done. There is fabric cut to size for 5 shopping totes that are for gifts in this stack.
And in the next stack is one bag and two wallets that are gifts in different states of finish.
And this bag below I have all the fabric ready to get started and really wanted to get to it last summer but maybe I will get to carry it this year.
The only crochet project I have in process right now is for my sister in law. I would love to finish it because I am not allowing myself to start another crochet project until I do.
And I always have some vintage things I have bought planning to give them a new life with a coat of paint. These I have collected to use in my sewing room so I thought I would add them on here at the bottom of the list. I even sat the can of pink chalk paint that I have planned on painting them with in one of the shelves.
I do wish I did not have any other projects sitting around unfinished but there are. I think if I come even close to finishing these I will feel very accomplished. And if I can keep motivated through all 4 quarters I might actually start out next year with very few old projects left to finish.
And of coarse I am linking this long lists of hopeful finishes to:
Thanks for popping in! Blessings from our home in the woods.
