I have decided. I will list all the projects that I intend to finish in 2017. If I manage to squeeze in any extra projects, that will be a bonus 🙂 Any projects not completed in Q2 will be rolled over to Q3 and then Q4.
Goal #1 – Linnea Ruffled bag
I started this in Q1. The pattern for this bag came from Sue Kim’s book. It was one of my goals for Q1 but I did not complete it in time for Q1 finish. See the WIP
Goal #2 – Gathered zipper pouch
Another of Sue Kim’s pattern. I had sewn one last year as a birthday present for my sister-in-law. I would like to sew another one for myself.
Goal #3 – Wristlet zipper purse
Sue Kim’s pattern again. It is from her book “Bags the Modern Classic”. I bought 2 of her e-books last year and I intend to make full use of the pattern books. I have paired up the following 2 fabric for the pouch. See the template that I have printed out… all ready to go.
Goal #4 – Patchwork tote bag using mini charm squares
I started this project towards the end of last year but I got ‘distracted’.
Hopefully I can complete it this quarter. According to the lady who wrote the tutorial, she finished it in 1 afternoon. Can you see how ‘slow’ I am in sewing? LOL You can view the pattern cum tutorial here
Goal #5 – Colourful patchwork tote bag by Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield
I found Caroline’s blog by accident and I fell in love with her projects and tutorials. Hence I purchased a Craftsy Class by her on Colourful Patchwork Bags. I don’t know why but this year I just have this urge to sew many bags and pouches. I have a few packs of charm squares that I purchased from Connecting Threads a few years ago. Caroline’s bag is the perfect project to use these.
Goal #6 – Colourful patchwork pouch by Caroline
Caroline’s Craftsy class also teaches how to sew a zipper pouch using grid interfacing. A friend helped me carry back from US some Pellon grid interfacing which I purchased specially for this project. Can’t wait to sew the pouch using this method.
Goal #7- Mini Ring Table Runner
When my friend came back from the States, he also helped carry back a mini quick curve ruler and the Mini Ring Pattern. I have started on a table runner with the ruler and pattern.
Goal #8 – Quilt for a colleague’s daughter
I have yet to decide on the pattern for this quilt but I do know the little girl loves lavender, lilac and purple colour. So I have chosen a fabric for the quilt.
Goal #9 – 2016 Aurifil Block of the month quilt for my husband’s niece
This quilt comprises of blocks from 2016 Aurifil Block of the month. The pic below shows the quilt top without its borders. It is now all pieced. What is left is to quilt it.
Goal #10 – Mystery quilt by Meadow Mist
In my last post I showed the first version of the mystery quilt. Since then I have added a flying geese border and a 2-strip outer border. Now to quilt it.
Goal #11 – Hunter Star Quilt for myself
I reserved the following 2 pieces of fabric from my stash for this quilt.
Goal #12- ‘Peared Up’ wall hanging
This kit was purchased a few years ago and kept in cold storage. Now is the time to use it to make a wall hanging.
Goal #13 – ‘Blooming Basket’ table runner
Another kit by Connecting Threads which I had purchased a few years ago. Don’t know why I bought it and kept it for so long. My wish is to complete table runner this year.
Goal#14 – Double wedding Quilt
After I finish with Mini Ring table runner (Goal #7), I intend to work on a Double Wedding Ring quilt using the Metro Ring pattern and the original Quick Curve Ruler. I hesitated to start on this quilt because I read that the squaring up of the blocks may pose some problems. Hopefully after I had done the Mini Ring table runner, I will be wiser. LOL. I have just the fabric for this quilt. Hometown Girl Jelly roll by Pat Sloan.
These are my very ambitious goals. I am linking up with 2017 Q2 FAL
