Mid Year #2018 PlanningParty Update

2018 Planning Party

Joining in with the 2018 Planning Party over at Quilting JETgirl.

So one half of the year has gone so let’s see where I am!

Get it done

  • Complete my Grandma’s Kitchen quilt by quilting and binding it.  ♥    Completed Completed Grandma's Kitchen quilt
  • Complete the I Love Dirt quilting and binding   ♥    Completed Completed Quilt
  • Quilt about three tops that I have   One done – the Solstice Quilt. Two to go.
  • Finish off a QAYG project that I started in 2017 and lost interest in, by doing a half size quilt  Still to be done.
  • Bind another couple of quilts waiting for that to happen Not Yet
  • Biggest goal is to piece up 40 more Splendid Sampler 6 inch blocks and then join them into a top and quilt, most likely using the same method for quilting as Grandma’s Kitchen.   ♥    Completed Splendid Sampler Quilt
  • Finish piecing my log cabin hearts and sew into a top.  ⇐  Working on at present. I have all the blocks complete and I have them sewn into rows, so next step is to join the rows.Log Cabin heart blocks
  • Plan a quilt and look for fabric that will suit it, one in memory of my mother, when planned start it. ♥    Planning started, fabric  gathered. I have a few blocks done for this. Ideally like to work on it at least one day a week.
  • Link with my sister to make a memory quilt for my Dad – we did save his clothing and my sister has  prepared pieces.  ♥    Off the list as my sister is well ahead with this.
  • Take a trip north to visit some quilt shops – and family of course. ♥    Completed 
  • Learn some photography skills for both quilt and book blogging I have been reading about this and have endeavoured to improve how I present a block and to photograph a quilt outside where possible.Quilt Block

And of course since the year started I have added a few goals to the list so adding for the second half

  • Make a bookcase quilt
  • Take part in the Splendid Sampler 2 sew along.
