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.

    • Yes I will, I wonder will I ever clear all the projects and have a clean slate to start something new without something else unfinished. Something to think about!


  1. Hi Kathryn,
    You are doing great on your goals for the year. You wouldn’t want to have them all accomplished already or what would you do for the rest of the year?! I’m glad you added your bookcase quilt to the updated list as that way we’ll be sure to see it by the end of the year, finished or not. Happy Wednesday! ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. Congrats on finishing your Splendid Sampler! I’ve got a pile of blocks from the first round. Not enough for a quilt, but enough that I don’t just want to scrap them. I have no idea what to do with them so I’m pretending they don’t exist for now.


    • Thanks Karin. I’d say make something from it. I made a scrappy one first of thirty blocks that made a little throw quilt that I love using on a cold winter day over my lap!
