2020 Goals

1 -- Fortune Teller
I started these blocks with the RSC14 (that's for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2014).  The blocks are beautiful.  I need to make more of them and put them in a quilt.





2 -- Picadilly Circle
I need to work and finish my Picadilly Circle blocks.  I started this project with the RSC14 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2014).  The quilt will be smaller than I like, but it would make a really nice gift.



Update 7/8/17:  I made the yellow block and the yellow border piece.


I only need four blocks (bright green and light green, yellow, and dark purple.)  I do need to make all the border pieces of Kelly green, red, dark blue, light purple, teal, dark orange, lime green, dark purple, yellow, pink, medium purple, and bight orange.

3 -- The Ohio Quilt

I started this quilt in 2018.  I started making blocks with cities important to my family and carried them in my sew-to-go bag for a project to work on for Slow Sunday Stitching.  The top is complete with border.  It fits our California King bed.  It needs a back, to be quilted during the warmer winter months, a label, and a binding.

Here's a picture of it at the current stage of the top being complete.  It fits our California King bed.  It has the grey inner border and red outer border on it now.



Here's some of the individual blocks with the cities on them when they were in progress:


4 -- Bonnie Hunter 2018 Mystery Quilt, Good Fortune

I started this quilt on Thanksgiving weekend, 2018.  It is called Good Fortune.  The pattern was designed as a mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter.  It needs a back, quilted, a label, and binding.  I'm not sure if it will get an additional border or not.  It may get a solid fabric border for ease of longarm quilting purposes.  It's pretty, but the project has stalled because I don't know exactly where it will end up.


5 -- Bonnie Hunter Garden Party

I adore this quilt that I started on March 18, 2017.  Every year I say I will finish it and give it to a very dear friend on her birthday in May... then I put it off and say I will give it to her for Christmas.  Many of the scraps were given to me from her.  I know she would love it.  


6.  Go Four It! -- Scrappy 4-patches started as leader/ender June 2017



I've been piddling with a bag that I won during the orphan adoption from Cathy who blogs at Cathy's CRAZY BY DESIGN.  It's the Dot Dot Dash Bag.   All the hard parts are already completed by Cathy.  The fabrics are gorgeous!  The bag was designed by Sara Lawson (of Sew Sweetness).   I pulled it out and tried to work on it during June, but our son came home unexpectedly from church camp and I had to put it away. :(



 Catchin' Some Rays needle turn applique crib quilt started March, 2018 (adding EPP hexies!)



I finished putting my Wings of Spring quilt!  I won these blocks in the March Block Lotto, 2019.
