Final Targets for the Year

Can you believe it’s December already??? So many things yet to do before the year end, and so little time … I think I should just concentrate on the projects I really want or need to finish, before December slips away.

First I really must finish up a little quilt for a friend. She’s just had a beautiful bouncing baby boy, and I owe her a cute quilt! I’m using the Moda Make Life charm pack for this project, together with some coordinating fabric. 

Don't you just love charm squares? I know I do! And these particular squares are so happy and cheerful :-)

I’m a little behind in this one, but at least I’ve got the top done now. I can’t show it to you just yet, but here’s a peek of the construction of the main blocks …

One thing I really want to be finishing before the year is up is…. my Scrappy Trip Around the World Quilt. The last time I laid out the blocks I found that I was 4 blocks short of the size I want (which needs 36 blocks total). 

I’ve now pieced the last 4 blocks, so now I’ve got to piece it altogether into one big top.

After that, I suppose I can’t escape quilting it. The thought kinda scares me because I’ve never quilted anything this big before. I’m not hoping for any fancy quilting – you can be sure I’ll be going with the easiest design possible!

More soon, in the meantime I hope everyone's having a good week :-)
