December 2014 entries

Goodbye 2014! (I won't miss you.....)

IMG_0954

2014 wasn't a horrible year for me. It was more weird than anything. I think perhaps a turning point in my life. I'm hoping to dig more into that this coming year but first, lets recap!
I will call 2014 the year of WIPs

January

Started making economy blocks. I've actually made these throughout the year when I need just a little something to sew. It's great for scraps and they always turn out cute. Maybe next year I'll have enough for a quilt.

My first quilt finish of 2014!
I was going to link to the post about this quilt and then found out I never blogged about it. Maybe I'll do that this weekend. Basically it's a Dwell Mini with a LOT of sashing. :)

Also my mom got the boys some spray snow and they ruined our house with their smiley face graffiti on EVERYthing.

Received some of Carrie's new Paint line early to help her with samples for Quilt Market.

The paint chip print was my favorite. You can see the blog post here.

Went to spring quilt market. I hope I can make it to another one someday, it was amazing.

Got some Indelible from Samantha. It is one of my favorite collections of the year.
I hope it is one of the winners on the Sew Mama Sew fabric poll.

I started sewing it with no real pattern so it's basically some random flying geese at the moment.



July

10570023_435304606607404_105731324_nI started my Native Sun quilt. I will love this quilt when it's done but there are so many flying geese I just haven't felt like dealing with it yet.

I received some beautiful fabric from Kylie. If you haven't acquired any Wild and Free snag you some NOW! It's one of my favorites and I hope to make something with it in 2015.

Finished the top on my Miss Kate Apple quilt

My Table for Two quilt arrived back from the quilters and I got the binding on just in time for Christmas for my moms gift.

Original post here and yes it did take a year to get it back from the quilter.

 

So how was 2014 for you? Will you be finishing up a handful of projects in 2015 as well?
