2015 Stitching

Last year's FAL was a great motivator and really helped me to focus on finishes rather than new starts, or at least on finishing the new starts so they didn't become new UFOs.  So, for 2015 (and all sorts of practical reasons) I want to continue focusing on completing a select number of projects before moving on to new things.

So, while I'm not going to play along with the FAL this year,  here's my focus list for now -

1.  Special project - more to be revealed in due course.
I've chosen some of my favourite Bonnie & Camille prints and am working up a design that Little Miss Shabby did a while back for Sew Mama Sew (I think).  I think I need to shuffle it a bit more before I finally sew it all together.

2.  Memory Quilts x 3
I'll explain more in another post but these shirts need to become 3 memory quilts and a fourth memory item (not yet decided).  If I finish nothing else this year, these are the ones I must complete.

3. Quilt Now BOM Quilt
Not sure how many more months the Quilt Now magazine BOM will run but I would like to keep up with it as best I can.  I have been enjoying Reene's series and look forward to see how this quilt will finish up.  I need to get December's blocks caught up for a start!

I think that's enough to focus on for now.  There are some other lovelies I'd really like to find time to play with this year (Moda's Modern Building Blocks and Thimbleblossoms Norway Quilt for a start), but I need to keep them out of sight for now or I will become distracted.

Focus, focus, focus.

Whether you are trying to be disciplined like me or are gaily sewing whatever comes your way this year, I hope your plans will bring you many hours of stitchy fun!


  1. Loving the looks of the top quilt. Best of luck with your plans.

  2. Looking good! I especially love your fabric choices for the block of the month. Lovely and cheerful.

  3. A focus list is a great idea - good luck!

  4. Interesting collection of things to make there, good luck!

  5. Focus is a great thing to aim for. Love the fabrics in your quilt now BOM. I have deadlines for swaps etc this month and have no choice but to focus though thee are 2 projects I'd love to start - must resist!

  6. They are all such bright and cheery projects Sarah.

  7. The B&C swirling stars quilt is so beautiful! What a great way to show off that line of beautiful fabric! Very pretty list you have there, Miss Sarah.
