But it hasn't been without its upside, and after spending the first half of the month with my head stuck in my Kindle, I finally got some motivation to get back in the sewing room and finished two quilts for my 14 in 2014 goal.
Starflower quilt that I started last August. The fabric is Beechwood Park by Janene Morrison, and the pattern is by my very own Amanda, whom you may know as A Crafty Fox or the owner of Westwood Acres Fabrics. Having some tutoring in spray basting at the quilt guild meeting last month really helped push this one along. My friend Marcy, who is an amazing long-arm quilter, was kind enough to suggest some quilting designs, and so I was really inspired to get quilting when I got home from the meeting.
Come on, February, warm up! I just haven't wanted to be outside at all. Brrrr! I need to get out and take pictures!
So, that's two of 14 finished in January. Not a bad start, really.
Here is the list for 2014:
2. Basket Blocks - no progress
4. Single Girl - no progress
10. Fat Quarter Shop Block of the Month Club quilt - no progress
Well, it was kind of discouraging writing "no progress" after all of those, but I'm trying to tell myself that finishing two quilts in January wasn't a bad start.
In addition to the 14 in 2014 quilts, I made:
And two adorable little pin cushions.
Not a bad start to the year, I think.
How was your January?
