Keeping Count : :

Counting Quilts

This year it is my goal to finish and share at least one quilt per month, in hopes of making another calendar and just to stay motivated and busy with projects throughout the year. With all that's happened these past several months it wasn't until last night that I thought of my goal and so I thought I'd share my results today!

January : : Diamond Zig Zag Quilt

February : : Follow the Arrow Quilt

March : : Winter Garden Quilt

April : : Winter Herringbone Quilt

May : : Rapture Making Rows Quilt

June : : Endless Summer Quilt

July : : Friendship Diamond Quilt

The truth is there were some months where I didn't have a quilt finish, but thankfully there were others where I had two. I'll take it! And, with my newly finished Scrappy Hourglass quilt top, my in progress Arizona Herringbone QAYG, and a few newly started quilt projects I'm feeling pretty good about my goal tonight!

  8. I hoped you would publish the January Zig Zag quilt instructions - or did I miss them? Love that design and need to make my daughter something here pretty soon! (College student moving into her own place :))

  18. I love the herringbone and need to learn how to do this method of sewing/quilting.

  19. Oh I just LOVE this! You inspired me to do the same and start was good but then I somehow lost my "tempo" and goal got almost abandoned... I am not beating myself up about it (with full time work, lots of family happenings and a new granddaughter, day just doesn't have enough hours sometimes...), but I am NOT going to give up just yet!! Your post inspired me to sit, take count and go from there!! Thanks! :)

  21. I love all your quilts, the colourful fabrics and the settings of the year you photographed them in :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. what a great way to keep yourself motivated! I find my problem is that when I finish a quilt in a fabric line that I like, I instantly start into my scraps which would result in half a calendar of all the same fabrics! :) maybe I can just buy a calendar from you :)

  23. Your quilts are beautiful and the settings for your photos.

  26. These are all gorgeous!! At the beginning of the year I was hoping to match my quilt total from last year (which was 23!!) and now realize that I must have lived in my sewing room last year, because there is no way I'm getting close to that number this year! 12 sounds much better :)
