Finished winding ways

 I finished my mini Winding ways quilt. No it's not big it's only 60cm x 60cm but it is a finish. On close inspection you will see that all blocks are perfect. However there is improvement The last blocks are better than the first.

I like how the patterns work. There are circles and ovals. I will have to make a larger version of this.
Because this is going to a young lady who is now 15 days old and around 9 lbs I decided to use fleece as a back for the quilt.

The stats:
60cm x 60cm finished
Accuquilt winding ways 8 inch finished die
Fabric from the stash; no new fabric was bought. The fabrics were all bought at Lady sew and sew.

First strike of the finish list for Q1.

Resolutions for 2015

Apologies for the long absence. I have been a little bit busy with Christmas etc. My blogging is sporadic at best, so here comes my first resolution: Blog once a week. 
  • Join the Finish Along 2015. This year On the Windy side is hosting it.  Let's hope this will spur me on to have more finishes. 
  • Get better at curves. In a view to achieving this I aim to finish this winding ways quilt. Only nine blocks, so not too hard. It should then be big enough for a baby quilt. Luckily one of my friends had a brand new baby girl on new year's eve. 

  •  Quilt my rowan red and aqua log cabin quilt. I have the back. I have the binding. I just need to go out and buy the wadding. 

  •  Quilt Shirt of my back scrap trip quilt. This top has been finished for almost a year. Better get this sorted. I have everything I need I jus haven't done anything about it. 

  •  Make eight bibs. Two for each baby due at husband's work. This needs to be a Q1 project as all the baby's are due between now and March. 

Not overly ambitious I know. There is a whole long list of other things I want to make and need to make. I am fairly sure that the daughters have outgrown most of their summer clothes and then there are the dress up days at school and school disco to consider too. 

I would like some new skirts. Husband wants a quilt to take in his car. I know there are at least three quilts I have pulled fabric for. I also started a red white and blue scrap quilt, which is making slow progress. 

Wish me luck with all this.
