Joy in the New Year Challenge - Works in Progress

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I just needed a little visual reminder of what I want to accomplish for Jacquie's challenge. All of these projects below, are quilts that I want to get quilted and bound before the New Year. The only one M.I.A. is my Fig Tree quilt, which is on display over at Just Sew. So that's 6 - total. 4 of them are all ready to be quilted. I think I want to make some more blocks for the big star quilt (the tutorial for that can be found here. It's a great stash buster or would be darling in pre-planned fabrics as well.) And I think I want to add some borders to my snowball quilt. I'm looking for some border ideas for that so if you want to share any pictures of your snowball quilts, I would love for you to send me a link. I've done it in Christmas colors, so I'm thinking of incorporating some snowflakes somehow, but any ideas for borders on that would be greatly appreciated.

It's always good for me to pull my projects out of the cupboards & out from behind the curtains to take inventory of what I want to accomplish. Making a goal or a deadline helps me too. I'm not sure if this is feasible to get all of these done before Christmas, but I'll give it my best try. If you want to join in on the challenge, head on over to Tallgrass Prarie Studio to sign up!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. I really really like the snowball quilt (the far right, correct?). Also, if the weathers ok this morning, is Mia around, do you want to go to the park for a bit. I am watching my Bro and Sis so I thought if I got out it would be nice. I'll call you :)

  2. All of your quilt tops look beautiful. Hope you finish them all :-)

  3. I love the snowball quilt. Is that for me...?

  4. Amber, they all look great! I agree with the others, there's something special about the snowball quilt... and that's saying a lot because it's not typically a pattern I'm drawn to. It really shows some great fabrics.

  5. Amber, all your quilts are so beautiful. I am a big Snowball quilt lover.
