Good Morning Quilters! This is the last Monday in the year. I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress on UFOs this year, but haven’t tallied up the finished quilts to see for sure. I think I’ll just look at the UFOs that are left and keep on keeping on.
My latest adventure in paring down and sorting through my quilt hobby collections is: Quilt Magazines! I love to look through old quilt magazines, and read the articles, look at the old advertisements, fantasize about making a quilt or two from the issue. However, I have way too many magazines.
The magazines are now separated from the books and sorted into piles by publisher, year and month of issue, etc. I am amazed at how many I have. I am pausing to look at the piles and think about how I want to pare them down. Right now, I’m thinking of just keeping the very old magazines (1980s)) of which I have several publications that are no longer in business and also keeping just one publisher of the newer magazines. I am thinking of keeping Better Home & Gardens publications (American Patchwork and Quilting). I will let you know how the culling project goes.
My only piecing this week has been to make a small quilt to match my recently finished Wedding Ring quilt. The small quilt (just a top right now) will finish at 14 inches square. I am sleeping under the bed sized Wedding Ring quilt, and had the thought the other night that I had not made a small version. So yesterday, I made one. Here it is:
I don’t think I showed you the finished bed sized quilt when completed. I will do that next week, I promise. I am looking forward to starting a new year, and looking at my hobby with fresh enthusiasm. How do you feel about starting a new year?
