I'm putting it in TEXT, right out there publicly, so that should mean NO TURNING BACK!
Well, at least I'm hoping it will especially motivate me to finish this month.
My friend Melissa at Sew BitterSweet Designs has been hosting this challenge all year called, A Lovely Year of Finishes, to try and challenge us to FINISH those projects that we have started....whether tangibly or in our head. And until last month, my project existed only in my head.....and the multiple messages I had sent Melissa asking how to go about starting my 1st quilt! :)
(Thanks again for all your help and suggestions Melissa!)
So, I'm officially declaring that JULY will be the month that I finish my 1st quilt and it becomes a lovely finish! I'm joining the challenge by adding my post to the "Goal Setting Party" here. And, YOU can join too!!!! :) Get all the details here.
If you saw my posts on facebook, this is where my quilt currently is....
Here's what I'm working on now...
However, I had to find a way to use a bit of the chevron since I loved it and it's so happy! :) It will be the main boarder around my quilt top. The problem.....I decided it would be a good idea to quilt EACH. WHITE. CHEVRON. And while I love the look....OH MY WORD this is taking FOREVER!!!! lol! :) Remember....I'm a total newbie, and this isn't just QAYG, but design and learn as I go too!
And by the way....is quilting normally this messy or do I have a problem???
My first completed quilt and my first Lovely Year of Finishes project.
