So, back in January, I made a goal to finish these four quilts before March 1st – and guess what? I win! I linked up with Quilter in the Gap in solidarity with some other folks who are also taking up the challenge to finish lingering projects. Ok, so, here are the four:
I think I’m most happy with the world map quilt. I got the fabric on a whim out of a clearance bin, and then got it home and really didn’t like the colors. I struggled with what to do with it, and ended up doing a patchwork of flannel, because I figured if it was ugly, it may as well be soft.
However, now that it’s done, I really like it! I was able to find all the flannel from my stash, except a half yard I had to buy to complete the back. For whatever reason, I never work with flannel, but this was so soft! I traced the latitude and longitude and then added swirly stars along the bottom. You know, for outerspace.
Here are the other ones from my list – I’m really glad I did this challenge and forced myself to deal with all these quilts. I am happy with how they all turned out and I had been really avoiding them. Incidentally, all these quilts are from my stash and use up lots of scraps, other goals of mine for this year.
