Earlier in the month, I set some quilting goals. Let’s see how I did at meeting them.
Make progress on a quilt for my daughter. Because of a challenge at the quilt shop where I work I’m making a Star Trek quilt for my daughter. I’m allowed to spread the task over the 12 months and in April my goal was to piece the remaining half of the large Enterprise block that’s featured in the center of the quilt..
Got this one done! Yeah me!
Make a Accuquilt Go baby quilt for the April Island Batik challenge. I got this one done as well! My blog post includes a photo tutorial for how to use the Accuquilt Go! so if you’re thinking about investing in a fabric cutter, check it out.
Make progress on the January Island Batik Getaway Blog Hop challenge My goal was to get the appliques all fused and edge-stitched but I only got just a little more than half of them done. You can read about the challenge here, and why I haven’t gotten it done just yet.
Make two Bee Inspired blocks. I’m happy to say I met this goal! Now to finish the remaining bee blacks from last year.
Write three new patterns for Island Batik. I’ve got three quilts in the Island Batik Spring Market booth, so I needed to finalize the three patterns and get them ready to sell. I’ve got one done, one underway, and one more to write. Better get moving!
Timeless Treasures selected one of my designs for a free download pattern for Quilt Market. My goal was to get the pattern written and submitted for publishing by mid-April. That’s been done and the pattern is ready to go.
Timeless Treasures also asked me to make a sample, and it’s been pieced and is ready for quilting.
So how did I do? Let’s see…I had 12 goals and I got 9 done. That’s 75%! Not too bad if I must say!
Come back on Monday when I’ll be publishing my goals for May. It’ll be a busy month so it’s a long list.
