I just have three goals for the first quarter of 2017. I am carrying over one of my 2016 Finish-A-Long 4th Quarter Goals and plan to get my Quatrefoil Bee Block quilt sewn together and have it quilted. I’m thinking of trying the Susie’s Magic Binding method of binding with this project.
I am also working on a modified Fancy Forest small quilt for my sister-in-law’s 65th birthday in April. It is actually my January 2017 OMG Goal to make three Hazel Hedgehog blocks and two thistle blocks to add to my four Fancy Foxes and get a 48″ square quilt top done by the end of this month.
My final Qtr One goal is to to finish a secret sewing project for my sister, Jackie, that I started almost a month ago. I’m in the process of finishing up eight placemats, a small table runner, and eight mitered-corner napkins for a birthday present for Jackie using charms cut into 2 1/2″ squares and yardage from Zen Chic’s Reel Time fabric collection. Last night I asked my sister to NOT read any of my new blog posts until after she receives her present (which she agreed to do). I do plan to get this project done this Martin Luther King holiday weekend, so it will definitely be my first Qtr One finish, and she should receive this birthday gift by the end of next week. Below is a pic of one placemat and the table runner that need the binding brought over from the back and hand sewn down on the front.
