January 2015: A Year of Lovely Finishes

Ever KNOW that your coming new year is going to be filled with change and adventure?  
I certainly do!

2015 is a big year for our family. I made up #my2015quiltlist the other day and realize I have a lot of quilt obligations, a few quilt goals, and a lot of quilt hopes. 

In order to keep on track, I am going to do my darnedest to keep up with the gals, Melissa of Sew Bitter Designs & Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts that organized A Year of Lovey Finishes at #AYOLF.

 They have a lot of great incentives to win from their sponsors if you need that kind of encouragement.  I'm also hoping it just gets me to blog some more again. I miss it. 

Come join us!

A Lovely Year of Finishes: January 2015

My January Project this year is my oldest son's quilt, the Argyle quilt.
I actually finished the hexes quite awhile ago (I'm pretending to misremember the date)

 I finally took some time and faced the fact that it needed to be finishes BEFORE he leaves the house for college in the fall...and actually maybe use it and enjoy it?  I spent a day making the pieced borders and then took two days appliquéing the hexes onto the background.  Adding the skinny grey border was a breeze after that.

I pinned the backing onto the leaders over the holidays while chatting with my family...however, when I went to velcro it on my rails, I realized that I put it on crooked. 
 So my task this month is to reload it and then quilt it.

The binding is also all prepped and ready to go as soon as I'm done.  A full quilt by the end of January?  I really hope this makes the linkup for a lovely finish at the end of the month.
  I'm already skating at the end of the day to post this.  

Wish me luck!  I'm wishing all others luck too!


  1. Your argyle quilt is super cool! It looks like it took a lot of time. It will be a major accomplishment to complete.

  2. I really like that quilt, the border treatment is great. And your 2015 Hexies photo is cool, too. Have fun finishing!


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
