Winter With You Tote

For my OMG at Elm Street Quilts, I would love to complete this Sew Sampler Box - Winter With You. This box makes a very pretty tote.

I started purchasing the Sew Sampler boxes probably last Spring. I have found that they really are a great value with what you receive. Plus, a lot of times, you can sew pretty much a whole project from the box. This box I really love. In addition, I need a tote that I can start using in the Spring.

Everything is included in the box except for the batting and muslin. However, I think I am going to use By Annie's Soft & Stable because I have quite it bit of it in my stash.

I am looking forward to completing this One Monthly Goal for March.

Old UFO Finally Finished!

The Crafy Quilter UFO & WIP Challenge has gotten me to work on this old project. The quilt top was sitting in a dresser drawer for a long time. Then I pieced a backing and basted the quilt sandwich together. Then it sat some more in my cedar chest.

My original intent was to "practice" free-motion quilting with it. But, I never did get around to that.  It is at least a 5-year old project. So in actuality, I did not even want to work on it now. But I decided that if it was complete, I could use it on my picnic table in Summer because it is long and narrow. Plus, kind of summery colors.

So I finally quilted it and bound it. 

I am checking this off of my UFO list. I'll be moving on to the next UFO.

New Kitchen, New Curtains

For One Monthly Goal for February at Elm Street Quilts, I decided to sew kitchen curtains from this fabric I purchased recently

 I am pleased with how they turned out and adds a nice touch to my newly finished kitchen.

My OMG Goal planning post for February was here and they have been completed.

All about Pixels

I pushed myself to finish this baby quilt for Challenge #4 of Project Quilting. The challenge was Pixel Play.

I love most of the quilts in this Fat Quarter Baby book. I kind of just looked through my fat quarters and decided on these colors. Hopefully, it's just kind of a unisex baby quilt. I like baby quilts that can be just thrown on the floor for the baby to lay on and play with toys. Then it can be washed and used again.

I did purchase the backing at my local quilt shop and tried to match it.

I was happy to finish it this afternoon. Gave it a wash and took a photo. Challenge completed!
