So, I found the TV series, Downton Abbey over the past summer and I'm so in love with it, I wanted to make a quilt using the DA fabric line. I didn't have anything in mind, so I went to the Andover Web site and just picked the quilt of the colors I liked. So, here's a pic of the blocks, just need some sashing and borders. Very easy and just enough of the same block not to get bored putting them together. I like it, sort of...my apologies for mess in the lower right hand corner - another unfinished project going on that's just hanging out there at the bottom of my design wall.
I've promised myself to work harder to get all these hand appliqued/BOMs finished this year or, at least, work on them. So, thinking spring is coming...Block #1 of Chick Jubilee is half finished.
This is my Quiltville Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt block that's almost finished. I'm loving it, but it may be moved to a leaders/enders project, only I'd do a portion of a step in between other quilts.
I have a Brother Scan and Cut and am going to start using it to cut my applique pieces out, but I have to starch the fabric for cutting and it's a bit more difficult to needle turn...thoughts or ideas? I'm looking for not having to cut FP and avoiding the starch method. Tried back basting, not for me.
I also want to really get something finished off my UFO list. Not sure how to get motivated when it's so much more fun to just start a new project. Anyone have a new method of tricking yourself into working on something long enough to finish it? LOL I've tried a ton of ideas...so far nothing has worked for me. I do wish I were a Project person, sigh, alas, I'm a Process person, so no finished quilts here. BLUSH
I need to add a page for 2015, so I can list my "starts" for this year.
