Monthly Quilting Review (February 2018)

I seem to need some method to keep me accountable, if only to myself. With that in mind, I am publishing a monthly review to document my progress. Maybe this will make me more productive as well!

I am currently working on:

Baby quilt for newest grandchild (made from a “Bee Inspired” Jelly Roll.)

  • batting arrived mid month
  • back completed
  • sandwiched
  • started quilting

Restoration project (Special project for a friend)

This quilt is a much-loved quilt made by my friend’s Nanny. She asked if I could re-attach the flowers, but it became a much bigger ‘restoration’ project. I am actually quite nervous about this one!

  • top cleaned up (old threads removed & pressed)
  • embroidery completed
  • applique of flowers started
  • batting arrived mid month
  • backing fabric purchased

Deck-ade The Halls (started in 2014)

  • still no progress to date;
  • backing fabric & batting have been purchased;
  • Next steps: sandwich the quilt;
  • decide on how to quilt it!

Projects in the queue:

  • Vacation Memory Quilt: Every year while on vacation, I purchased a few fat quarters that will remind me of those vacations. I have been looking for the perfect pattern to make a memory quilt – progress: I finally found a pattern I like and made a list of extra materials required
  • Red, White & Grey Quilt: material for quilt top purchased and patiently waiting to be made into a new quilt

There you have it…February is finished and I have made some progress, even though I can’t report a finish; I am close! 🙂

Thanks for joining me on this journey…until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
