Let's Sew Link Up.....

Oops, I am a few days behind on January's Let S.E.W. Link up.....

(If you want a button for your blog, click on the page tab above to find one!)

My Christmas decorations are still judging, right? 😂

And my new sewing room still isn't organized.....yikes....


I've made a promise to myself (not a New Years resolution, 😉)

This year I am going to use my time wisely and finish all those quilt tops that are in a pile in my bedroom. It is sad but true, I am easily distracted by the next fun project, pattern, material....
Which means lots of quilt tops are made but sadly less actual quilts, but no more.....

I am off to a good start too....if you don't take into consideration that the first project I completed in 2017, I started in 2017, while quilt tops from as far back as 2013 (maybe even 2012😳) sit unfinished. In my defence I was asked to be a part of a book review, I Love PreCut Quilts,  for CT Publishing, so I had to get that done✅ (blog hop runs at the end of the month and I will be giving away a free copy of the don't for get to come back!!)

(I used a fun Moda print for my precut project)

I also managed to get my Wiggle Me Colourful Quilt, quilted today. I still have to bind it and I think I will be adding some hand quilting to this one...I've never done that before, so wish me luck.
I'm not going to say I made a mistake, but I set the digital E2E at 14" without really considering the size the hearts would my closed hand almost fits inside the just to make sure I don't have any issues I'm going to add some hand stitching. (it's not a mistake, because I love this it was just meant to be....)

I especially think the hand stitching will add so much visual interest to the back!!

Oh, I am going to use you all to keep me true to my promise, if you don't mind?

I did a complete count of the finished quilt tops...23 including the Wiggle Me Colourful above...
So right now I am at 1/23 done. My promise, besides using my time wisely, is to load a quilt on at least 2 Mondays a month for the year. If I do that I should have them all quilted by the end of this year. Isn't that just crazy...that I have enough quilt tops just sitting it could take a year to quilt them all....bad on me.....and that I will probably (and you know I will) keep making more this year, lol it's an ongoing battle to start and finish every quilt top and not have a pile......
may never happen

Ok, enough about my issues.....
Let's get on with the link up
