In January, I finished piecing Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt! Technicially I just started this in November, but I thought it would be a win if I did not start off the year by creating yet another partially finished top, so decided to get this one done right off ! I also purchased a back for it, so technically I am ready to get this one finished when I have time to do the quilting, but I am pleased that I finished the top for now.
In February I finished my sampler quilt with the fun cat fabric:
I just got the backing for this one, too! I was bad and had to pick this fun fabric for the backing...I think it is so funny :) Those mischievous cats, look what they did!
In March I finished this beauty of a quilt top - and purchased the back for it as well. It will go up next on the queue for quilting because I want to get it done! I have the backing for it as well, but I have to finish quilting the ones I have pinned already so I can use them to get this basted.
Since I have been working with large quilts the last few months, I'm going a little smaller this month. The top that I would like to get done for April is the Craftsy Block of the Month from 2012. I think I made it up to the June lesson...English Paper piecing. It's the handwork that gets me every time! I just need to do it - it's not that I don't know how or am terrible at it, I just prefer to speed along with my sewing machine.
I also am working on a custom quilt, so that should keep me busy as far as piecing goes, and I have lots of quilting to do as well, witness the three queen size tops that just got finished and are ready to go! I will undoubtedly fill in with some smaller projects, and quick finishes as I go along, but I intend to stick to my goal of finishing those WIP's this year (Works In Progress). Dear Jane, Joy, and Farmers wife will be getting done, and I want those all finished before September so I must be getting to those after taking the month of April a little easier!
Now it's time to get that walk in for the day and work on the next order for curtains - at least this set is a short length and shouldn't be too taxing to work on. I am excited to get my day's worth of work done on them so I can get back to machine quiting my current shop sample - wait till you see what I am working on, so pretty!
