My 100 Day Sewing Challenge #14

This week I'm working on a 'finish' ... something I started a while back and never finished.  I pulled it out this week to 'finish it up' but alas, it didn't happen!

It has been another crazy busy week and I only got to sit down at my sewing machine ONE day!  By-the-way, this one day of sewing for at least 15 minutes puts me at day 30 in my sewing challenge!

Okay, on to what I'm trying to finish ...



I started this child's quilt a couple of years ago (don't laugh, I have some WIP's that are older than this)!  I completed the top, got it ready to quilt and even started machine quilting it ... and then, for what ever reason, I didn't finish it.

One of my goals during this 100 Day Sewing Challenge is to finish up some of my WIP's and this little quilt is the first in line for completion.


So, here we go, I had hoped to finish it this week but my ONE day of sewing wasn't enough.  I don't intend to lay it aside again until it is completed, I'm so close!!!!

I can't wait to get it done, give it a good washing, toss it in the dryer and then watch those little crinkles appear that I love to see in a completed quilt!

What have you stitched up this week?

  3. I have several WIPs...maybe several dozen!! I made it a goal a couple of years ago to finish at least 5. And I did! I need to make that a priority on my 2018 list. It's such a great feeling.

    Your quilts are beautiful!

  4. That is one pretty little quilt. Cant wait to see it finished.
    I am in the process of putting a kitchen set together, for my SIL for Christmas. I have completed patchwork edging on two flour sack kitchen towels and two patchwork potholders. I have pieced a table runner(just 3" squares) and need to quilt and edge this and this gift is done. I'm also half way through making a rag doll mermaid, that I made up a pattern for, for Tilly. Now that I am nearly finished I can see all the design flaws. This little doll will go in the toy box to play with here. She will get one minus design flaws for Christmas.
    Loving this challenge.

    1. Jane, do you have pictures? I had to chuckle at the mermaid rag doll, that sound so like something I would do!!!

  5. Patsy just love your quilt. I am in Australia and quilting classes are far too expensive for me..is your quilt just squares stitched together and smaller squares stitched around to make the pattern, it looks good If you have the time could you do a tutorial because I think I could manage to make one like yours thanks and God Bless Carol Anne

    1. Carol Anne, I can do a tutorial but let me warn you I am totally self-taught which may or may not be a good thing when trying to teach others. With that being said, this would be a good first quilt to learn on and I will be glad to share how I did this little project with you. Give me a few days and I'll try to get a tutorial done and posted.

  6. Here's the quilt I made for my soon to come grandson! http://pin.it/F-KZ2Ai
    I also made the first 4 (of 20) quilt blocks for a client made from her GF's coveralls and flannel shirt. For some reason, I can't copy and paste that photo link. ☹

    And then I just made 2 microwave bowl cozys.
