Getting it Done in January

Here are my completed quilting goals for January - I managed to finish all of them.  Wouldn't it be nice if the rest of 2013 would be that productive.

I finished quilting the blue quilt in the middle - and got all three bound.  The two on the right are waiting to see if the February grandbaby will be a boy or a girl.

I also made another baby boy quilt - and passed it on to a new great nephew to snuggle.

I even managed to get started on what may be a QOV.

Even more fun than meeting my goals was the opportunity to take a weaving class at the Calumet Art Center.  It's always fun to learn a new craft.  Many years ago my dad made a table loom and it's been sitting in my attic waiting for me to retire.

It may sit there a bit longer.  Apparently it went to the attic via the old stairway that has since been made into a closet.  It's a bit too wide to fit through my newer drop down stairway.

Fortunately I was able to rent a loom at the art center to work with.  Here's what I have done so far - what a fun way to use up some of my quilting scraps!

 My goals for February:

  1. Finish my weaving project.
  2. Baste and quilt low value log cabin quilt
  3. Baste and quilt one more baby quilt.
  4. Baste one more quilt top - not sure yet which one I'll pick.
I think its doable!


  1. pretty, pretty!
    i think weaving would be my cup of tea.

  2. Great finish on all your goals ~ way to go!

  3. love your weaving and waiting to see what's next! Julie

  4. Very nice! I have a rug on the loom that I need to get done for the sauna. I would love to get a small table top loom for smaller projects like this.
